    Every house on the street
    Will get on their feet
    Carry the sleepers out into the weather, from the violet cities
    The violet cities

    They'll turn on their lights and open their eyes
    Drop to their knees and they'll drink from the river in the violet cities
    The violet cities

    On and on they'll lead us on and
    On and on they'll lead us on
    We'll all get high and walk off
    Into the country, ridiculous country
    Where the blue sky will smother us
    Believe me, believe me, believe me
    The blue sky will smother us

    They'll open their doors and they'll sing to the sun
    We don't know anymore how to glitter we come
    From the violet cities
    The violet cities

    If we stand there and stare and everyone's come
    They may never find out that we came here at all
    From the violet cities
    The violet cities

    On and on they'll lead us on and
    On and on they'll lead us on
    We'll all get high and walk off
    Into the country, ridiculous country
    Where the blue sky will smother us
    Believe me, believe me, believe me
    The blue sky will smother us
    Believe me, believe me, believe me

    Good. "The blue sky will smother us" is a great line. Is it about the rat race? The seemingly beautiful things, "the blue sky" are deceptive and are a trap to trick us into going to work, when in fact upon arrival it will "smother us" in work.
