Humdrum

This song is by Peter Gabriel and appears on the album Peter Gabriel (1977) and on the album Sound Fruit (1997).

I saw the man at J.F.K.
He took your ticket yesterday
In the humdrum
In the humdrum

I ride tandem with the random
Things don't run the way I planned them
In the humdrum
In the humdrum

Hey Valentina, do you want me to beg?
You got me cooking I'm a hard boiled egg
In the humdrum
In the humdrum

Empty my mind -- I find it hard to cope
Listen to my heart -- don't need no stethoscope

Seem' to me that television
She come to cut me a deep incision
In the humdrum
In the humdrum

Empty my mind -- I find it hard to cope
Listen to my heart -- don't need no stethoscope

Out of woman come the man
Spend the rest of his life givin' back when he can
As a bow, so a dove
As below, so above
From the black hole
Come the tadpole
With the dark soul
In coal she burn, she burn

As I drove into the sun
Didn't dare look where I had begun
Lost among echoes of things not there
Watching the sound forming shapes in the air
From the white star
Came the bright car
Our amoeba
My little liebe schon
