There was a man that I once knew
I said to him: take a walk in my shoes
Well... he took a walk in my head
and then he reached a sign that said...
"Welcome, welcome to Paradise Park -
The grass is green when it's after dark.
The birds swim fast and the fish all sing -
I know it's weird, but that's my thing.
The moon won't rise and the sun won't set
But that's something you just learn to forget.
The clocks run fast but the time is slow;
The clouds aren't here, but the wind might blow.
You'll see the sounds and hear the sights -
You'll taste the thorns and feel the lights
The dogs are mad and their teeth are bared
It might be strange, but don't be scared.
When you reach the end, just turn around.
You'll see the fish - they make no sound.
The birds forget to swim with wings
I know it's weird, but that's my thing."
You're the first guest this place has seen.
It's nice sometimes, but it's not serene...
The horses, good god, they'll bolt out the door
But that's just something you'll learn to
