Lyrics

So beautiful and so world weary
I met him when he was just nineteen
Around him I felt so dreary
You know he was a living dream

Once I said he was far too Bowie
He said, "Oh baby, you're so tired,"
He always had a better story
But you know he was always wired

Ronald Koal was a rock star
In '81 he was the king
Ronald Koal was a rock star
In Columbus he was the thing

A nervous angel inside him waiting
He saw the world through its eyes
Saw the world is not worth hating
All it offers are goodbyes

Ronald Koal was a rock star
He was too big for this town
Ronald Koal was a rock star
It's in the small pools where you drown

We're all going to be forgotten
Let's face it - it's in store
The end is always gonna be rotten
And I can hear it knocking on my door

Ronald Koal was a rock star
I hope he's in the sky getting blown
Ronald Koal was a rock star
It's a life you live alone
Ronald Koal was a rock star
He was a true believer
Ronald Koal was a rock star
He was a true believer
