Daily Nightly – The Monkee’s

Just wanted to share the lyrics to a song that enthralled me as a teenager…

Dark and groaning figures move through prisms of no color
Hand in hand, they walk the night, but never know each other
Passioned pastel neon lights light up the dual trav’lers
Who, lost in scenes of smoke-filled dreams
Find questions, but no answers

Startled eyes that sometimes see phantasmagoric splendor
Pirouhette down palsied paths with pennies for the vendor
Salvation’s yours for just the time it takes to pay the dancer
Once again, such ancient men find questions but no answers

The night has gone and taken its infractions
While reddened eyes hope there will be a next one

Sahara signs look down upon a world that glitters glibly
And mountainsides put arms around the unsuspecting city
Second hands that minds have slowed are moving even faster
Toward breaking down someone who’s found
The questions, but no answers.

  1. And people said they monkeyed around… 😛

  2. I have a soft spot for Dolenz who created the worst and best sci-fi TV of my childhood years (Metal Mickey and Luna respectively…)

    • I had a Metal Mickey Robot well before I even knew the Monkees existed!! Wow. Didn’t know Mickey Dolenz was responsible for that… He was always my favourite… 🙂
