The truth eloped

It ran away with Del Shannon.

There is no better time to be or for me to be better in time
don’t worry
the Presidential invite to the palace of midnight awaits.

If the whole World’s gone mad who has the key to the medicine chest?
a mile further on and the gates of the asylum swing wide
medication?
third room on the right
everyone’s drunk in the palace of midnight,

and just before we pass out everything turns white
