Lyrics[edit]

    Mellow yellow acid kiss
    Warhol painted kaleido-trips
    Spinning, spinning, spin again
    Coke, tar, crystal methane thrill
    Cash-in-dime for a ride
    My brain like eggs is cracked and fried
    Cash-in-dime for a ride
    My brain like eggs is cracked and fried
    
    Junk the magic dragon
    Lives in my brain
    Junk the magic dragon, yeah
    Love will always end, it ends in pain
    
    Bones are pulled so tight on skin
    Like canvas tent poles oh so thin
    Winding smile upon my lips
    All but instant death sentence
    Cash-in-dime for a ride
    My brain like eggs is cracked and fried
    Cash-in-dime for a ride
    My soul's like Jesus, crucified
    
    Junk the magic dragon
    Lives in my brain
    Junk the magic dragon, yeah
    Love will always end, it ends in pain
