​O Maria

This song is by Beck and appears on the album Mutations (1998).

Original video
There was no one, nothing to see
The night is useless and so are we
'Cause everybody knows the fabric of folly
Is fallen apart at the seams

And I've been lookin' for a good time
But the pleasures are seldom and few

There's no whiskey, there's no wine
Just the concrete and a worried mind
'Cause everone knows death creeps in slow
Till you feel safe in his arms

And I've been lookin' for a new friend
And I don't care if he's decrepit and grey

O maria haven't you known
Days so careless all on your own
'Cause everybody knows the circus is closed
And the animals have gone wild

And I've been lookin' for my shadow
But this place is so bright and so clean

There was no one nothing to see
The night is useless and so are we
'Cause everybody knows the fabric of folly
Is fallen apart at the seams

And I've been lookin' for a good time
But the pleasures are seldom and few
