Lost On The Way To Find Myself

I got lost on the way to find myself
Asked for directions, ended up on the shelf
Among uncharted hills in an unknown town
Where the fire station recently burnt to the ground
Where they closed the schools coz there was nothing to learn
Where policemen recite odes to a Grecian urn

They were hanging a witch in the market square
They were driving cars with six wheels and a spare
They were wearing trousers with a subtle flare
They were planning a banquet in honour of the mayor
I got lost on the way to find the truth
And I lost more than innocence, I lost more than youth

Is this the way to love a girl?
Is this the way to a better world?
