in cognito blues

Jun 01, 2009 - 4 comments

meet me in cognito baby
in cognito we have nothing to hide
let's go incognito honey
and let the world believe that we've died

meet me in cognito baby
of course we'll have to color our hair
the best thing about life in cognito
is that everybody's nobody there

meet me in cognito darling
sure some may think it's rash
but you'll look chic in cognito
with your fake nose and grouch mustache

meet me in cognito baby
we'll leave our pasts behind us
the present is always a mystery
as the future never fails to  remind us

once we're alone in cognito
we'll remove all of our clothes very fast
but though we be naked as jaybirds
at no time will we take off our masks

cinderella went incognito
and said that she had a ball
it's alwayys midnight in cognito
by the black clock at the end of the hall

we're destined to be clandestine
incognito is our very last hope
i'll meet you where the sun don't shine
with a fake I.D. and some dope

so do join me in cognito
you know that i'll never tell
we'll sneak in the back door of heaven
and stroll unnoticed through hell

incognito
there, every day's a surprise
incognito
where the truth tells all the best lies

those who travel in cognito
their very lives depend on a hunch
they eat intuition for breakfast
and sip cold paranoia at lunch

if you won't meet me in cognito
baby i'm apt to go out of my head
but if you really can't handle incognito
meet me in absentia instead

the one who is missing is missing
he can't run but he certainly can hide
his ghost car is parked in cognito
do you think he might give us a ride?

you play the game incognito
you risk paying a very stiff price
you'll bet the ranch on number 13
though that number is not on the dice

no news is good news in cognito
addresses are damn hard to find
the queen of spades runs the mailroom
and all the postmen are legally blind

just because you're naked
doesn't mean you're sexy
just because you're cynical
doesn't mean you're cool
you may tell the greatest lies
and wear a brilliant disguise
but you can't escape the eyes
of the one who sees right through you

in the end what will prevail
is your passion not your tale
for love is the holy grail
even in cognito

so better listen to me sister
and pay close attention mister
it's very good to play the game
amuse the gods, avoid the pain
but don't trust fortune, don't trust fame
your real self doesn't know your name
and in that we're all the same
we're all incognito
