"Artificial Energy" lyrics - THE BYRDS

"Artificial Energy"
(Hillman / McGuinn / Clarke)

Sittin' all alone now, I took my ticket to ride
Just a matter of time now till I'll be up in the sky

Coming up on me now, I'm king for the night
What's it gonna be now,
How hurtful things are brewing inside
Do you think it's really the truth that you see?
I've got my doubts, it's happened to me

Artificial energy is wrestling my mind
I've got a strange feeling
I'm going to die before my time
I'm coming down off amphetamine
And I'm in jail 'cause I killed a queen
