Artificial Energy
The Byrds Lyrics


Sitting all alone now
I took my ticket to ride
Just a matter of time now
Til I'll be up in the sky.
Coming up on me now,
I'm king for a night
What's it gonna be now?
How willful things are building insight
Do you think it's really the trip that you seek?
I've got my doubts it's happened to me.
Artificial energy
I've got a strange feeling
I'm going to die before my time
'Cause I'm coming down off amphetamines
And I'm in jail 'cause I killed the queen.

Sitting all alone now
I took my ticket to ride
Just a matter of time now
Til I'll be up in the sky

Coming up on me now
I'm king for a night
What's it gonna be now?
Powerful things are brewing inside

Do you think it's really the trip that you seek?
I've got my doubts it's happened to me

Artificial energy
Is racing in my mind
I've got a strange feeling
I'm going to die before my time

I'm coming down off amphetamines
And I'm in jail cause i killed the queen
