Latin Quarter - Long Pig


She was jolted by joy, surprised by serenity
She was secretly pleased how easy salvation can be
New truths for old, come in from the cold
Her mother's in the kitchen when the door slammed
And a daughter's gone missing, gone looking for shelter
She'll find it at the foot of a better, a better
A better helter skelter

A stretch outside, a seer needs to travel in style
Now stretch right out and help him help you tune in your dial
He's holding out hope, a ticket to utope
You need to get your energy unjammed
The spirit is a river, we're living on the delta
And someone's getting soaked on a better, a better
A better helter skelter

One of those days when everything falls away
And you go looking for a system or a sign to help slow the decay
There's always a friend who got it on oath
About a man in a role talking personal growth
Do you take up his chant, or look underneath
Is he whispering a mantra, or lying through his teeth

It's the primitive scream of a family that's tearing apart
Maybe it's never that good but home's still the home of the heart
She'll be seeing you again, but don't go in the den
Because Renées in there getting deprogrammed
She should have looked harder at the hand he dealt her
Broken at the foot of a better, a better
A better helter skelter
