Haze for Days

Part 1: Forest Babies
We were born in the forest (forest babies)
But then they cut down all the trees
(They chopped ’em down They chopped ’em down)
Now we’re living at the top of the
Chrysler Building in the lap of luxury

We were sitting by the ocean
(watching the clouds go by)
Smiling and waving at the planes
(the planes up in the sky)
Transistor radio made of coconuts and seashells in her hair
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

We were bored in the city (didn’t know what to do)
So we moved down to the lake
(for that sweet sweet lakeside view)
Now the Lake is a fake and the river’s a joke
And the trees are smoking the clouds are choking me

Let’s move out to Arizona (Arizona!)
White Sands New Mexico
(Let’s go to New Mexico)
We can truly be free with the Joshua trees
Get abducted by aliens and have their babies (baby)

Part 2: Haze for Days
If I ever lost my true love
I swear I’d go insane

Haze for days for days
Haze for days for days
I met my babe at the rave
Now we live inside this cave

Haze for days for days
Haze for days for days
I met my baby at the rave
Now we live inside this cave

Now we live inside this cave
We live inside this cave…
