Kamikaze
by Willie Murphy

He's a kamikaze
He's a suicide commando
He could never handle all the airs society puts on
Kamikaze; sittin' at the bar

Let me introduce you
Someone I know well
Spend' his life in either heaven or hell
His heart is true
His eyes see through
A prophet's eyes don't ever lie
He know what he got to do

Scufflin' in the alley
His face is pain
Dyin' every step he takes 'til he scores again
Standin' on the corner later on that night
Escaped his future one more time
Now everything's alright

Hey now, he's a kamikaze in a suicidal syndrome
Tryin' to come in from all the cold this world puts out
Kamikaze -needle in his arm

Kamikaze!

Tried to chill out once
Tried to chill out twice
Nine ten times, man, he put his soul on ice
When his eyes open
When he can see
He don't want to stay in this hell we call reality

Kamikaze say:

Life is the moment -pain or exaltation.
Speedballs and withdrawals are my life long vocation.
My life is real out here on the edge.
You think you're livin' more than me?
We'll talk about it when we're both dead.
Hey now, he's a kamikaze
He's a suicide commando
He could never handle all the jive this world's about
Kamikaze -drinkin' gasoline
Ha ha ha. That's right. One little taste, man. That's all I want....
