Ever been artificially numbed from the waist down, 24 hours awake with no food, and all the mind-blowing
hormones a person can produce? The new Ma Polaine's Great Decline single MORPHINE relives
all the surreal and unreal thoughts of a time just like that. What Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was for LSD,
this one is for childbirth.

lyrics

Morphine
There’s a boat
And it floats
On the city of love
And the people all go there
With smiles that go no where
And a head full of love

And it sits on the tip
Of a giant meringue
And it makes them all giddy
How happy and dreamy
The world has become

But it’s just a little shot
A little crushed up heart of
Morphine
Morphine
Morphine in a jar
Morphine
Morphine (in a jar)
Morphine in a jar
A little morphine in my mind

There’s a boat
And it floats
On the city of love
And the people all crow there
Demented and cold there
But they don’t feel a thing
And it’s stocked
In a box
Filled with every desire
And it tastes like dandelion
The rowdy band align
To play a quirky little song

But it’s just a little shot
A little crushed up heart of
Morphine
Morphine (In a jar)
Morphine in a jar
A little morphine in my mind

Come with me break away the veneer
Oh the pain’s in your body but your mind is clear
It’s a cult it’s a dream it’s a miraculous thing
It’s right down to the bone
It’s everywhere you go you know it’s

Just a little shot
A little crushed up heart of
Just a little shot
A little pill
A little crushed up heart of
Morphine
Morphine (In a jar)
Morphine in a jar
A little
Morphine
Morphine (In a jar)
Morphine in a jar
A little morphine in my mind
