(i want to live on an) abstract plain lyrics – frank black

i’ve had it with this town
i never saw those shifting skies
i never saw the ground
or the sunset rise
i want to live on an abstract plane

i’m building a frame
a place to put my ten-yard stare
thinking of that paint
painted in plain-air
i want to live on an abstract plane

i need a new address
i want some new terrain
is it north or south?
i want to live on an abstract plain

i could sit on the roof
on top of that abstract house
see my abstract view
an abstract mouse
i want to live on an abstract plane

i need a new address
tell me i’m not insane
is it up or down?
i want to live on an abstract plane
