Beta Carotene
Lyrics:

I got myself the means
I got myself what I call the Beta Carotene
Despite from all the string
I never had enough, enough to keep you dreaming (drinking?) along

And by the poolside
I watch the summer and the thought of the life ends in fire
Sometimes we get so many lifts well
Sometimes you know you're gonna have to gonna get around

(?)
And all your friends know that you know, you know you're right and
Cuz they all know you know, you know, you know, you know, you know you're right

I got myself the things
I got myself what I call the Beta Carotene
Despite from all the string
I never had enough, enough to keep you dreaming (drinking?) along

And by the poolside
I watch the summer and the thought of a life ends in fire
And some, so many lifts you know, know, know, know, know, know, know
You're gonna have to go and get a ride
You're gonna have to go and get a ride
Have to go and get a ride
Gonna have to go and get a ride
Gonna have to go and get a ride

(?)

I'm never anywhere
I never feel somewhere, don't you know
You know I never feel somewhere, don't you know
Oh no, I never

(?)

Oh no, I know
Oh no, oh no
What was, what was
Oh no, I don't, I don't
No, I know
I know, don't go
You go, oh no
(Water slide?)
Hell, we'll pay

Heaven as a collection agency
One, two, seven
Heaven (?) collection agency
Dot I, I, I, I, I, I, I
All the pages
