I’m shake’y and I’m nervous and I’m anxious as Hell.

I’m manic seeing static, in a panic as well.

I’m gonna give myself a heart attack

But the doctor says I’m much too young for that

I’m gonna give myself a heart attack ..

.. the doctor says, I’m much too young …

 

But my hero was much younger than I

When my hero was immortalized

On magnetic tape and digital sound waves

No grave for the soul

But a vinyl coffin made of gold

No grave für the soul

You’re made of gold

 

My hero lives on video

My hero lives on video

 

You can watch him groove

As live moves by frame

In a mess of curls

As the girls

Screams his name

 

He was the Lyricist

A mad scientist

An architect of quick wit

The best to smoke and drink with

The best to joke and think with

He was one of the Lost

The first to be found

We’ll keep playing his songs

They keep us comfort

And feel proud

To have known this body

Who’s soul is still so loud

 

My hero lives on video

I never cared for the radio

They don’t play him, they don’t know

My hero lives on video

 

My hero lives on video

My hero lives on video

 

I’m shake’y and I’m nervous and I’m anxious as Hell

I’m manic, seeing static in a panic as well

I’m gonna give myself heart attack

But the doctor says I’m much too young for that
