verse:
I tuned the Devil's harp, it was the last thing that I heard
Before I walked the stretch of road between Nagoya and absurd
I meant to find my lover there, but I found a little bird
She sang me how the world was made, I hung on every word

She told me why the rabbit cries and why some stars were red
Told me where the doepa goes to lay his weary head
That the World was incomplete and the king would soon be dead
She offered me her wing that night, I took the road instead

chorus:
Maybe I'm mad, baby
Maybe I've fallen from the poplar tree
Carry me back, baby

verse:
With borrowed pride I could not hide; I grew a sailor's beard
And as I walked, my innocence, my leaves they disappeared
Rented a room upon the hill where a marble cat appeared
He showed me where the fire was and I had nothing to fear

For all God's good and Brotherhood, we drank 'til I was crowned
Then a Lady from the Everglades pulled my ass up off the ground
She kissed me four times on the cheek, and once upon the brow
For a moment I believed that I had come for what I'd found

INSTRUMENTAL

verse:
Now I sit alone with all the cracks in my guitar
For all the miles I've put behind I haven't come that far
But we are all compelled to look for the wind inside a jar

chorus:
Maybe I'm mad, baby
Maybe I've fallen from the poplar tree
Carry me back, baby

Maybe I'm mad, baby
Maybe I've fallen from the poplar tree
Carry me back, baby
