In an outdoors flatland
I engage in conflict for food
I perform physical labor
I do not engage in conflict
To demonstrate my moral superiority
I do not require a pardon

I enjoy large posteriors, but lack the ability to prevaricate.
You, my male siblings, are unable to dispute this.

There exists a woman who is certain
Everything that scintillates is aurous
And she is purchasing a path of steps to nirvana.

You make me jumpy and disoriented
Excessive affection causes mental illness in males
You rendered me hopeless - it was exciting
Golly gosh, large circular flaming orbs

She was merely a maiden from a village of few people,
Existing in a milieu that provides insufficient companionship.
Said maiden boarded an iron horse that departed as one day faded to the next.
She then journeyed towards a place best named oblivion.

The lad hailed from a most populous place, having been spewn into this world and ushered into manhood in the southern sector of a city on the shore of great waters.
He as well boarded that self same rail-drawn conveyance, also at the hour of all naughts, and began a similar journey, hurtling in the direction of... no place at all.

Ray Davies was really emphasizing one point in this song.

He was the charlatan for a grand of monarchs.
I bumped into him in the dark when I was lost.
He recited fake news and stole my grape juice.
But other than that we go on pretty well.

Do you come from Australia?
Where women are luminescent and men steal?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the rumbling?
You better run, you better take cover

I did indeed discharge a firearm in the direction of the senior official of the local constabulary causing his unfortunate expiration.
However, under no circumstances did I perpetrate a homicide on his second in command.

There must be an exit from this place
Noted the jester to the cheat
There’s an abundance of bewilderment
I can achieve no peace
Merchants partake of my liquor
Planters my dirt do till
Not one from one to the other end
Comprehend this bill

Don’t feel obligated to be agitated
The cheat friendly said these words
More than a few of us here with you
Believe our existence is absurd
But both of us we’ve experienced that
And our destiny’s not there
So why don’t we tell the truth at last
We have no time to spare

From the bottom to the top of the lighthouse
Royals saw all that‘s there
And women walked in and out
And slaves who bore no foot ware

Not in here but far out there
A puma at them snarled
A pair of horsemen rode in closer
And the breeze became a swirl
