Lyrics   status: confirmed

Falling outta sleep I hit the floor
I pull on some rock tee and I'm out with the door
From Bowery to Broome to Green
I'm a walking lizard
Last night's dream was a talking baby wizard

All coming from female imagination
Daydreaming days in a daydream nation

Smashed up against a car at 3am
The kids dressed up for basketball
Beat me in my head
There's bum trash in my hall
And my place is ripped
I totalled another amp, I'm callin' in sick

It's an anthem in a vacuum on a hyperstation
Daydreaming days in a daydream nation
