Run pathetic rabbit you're undone
Limp into the distance and saute in the sun
I don't want to write sad songs for you
should be a blip on my fair radar not a permanent tattoo

oil and water only separate, they can't combine
so why'd the oil waste the water's time?
Commit your crimes now honey,
I'll commit mine
or maybe go out of my head
in a bar 'til I'm dead

You said you couldn't see where it could go
I said the bedroom's far enough
you said I don't think so
what you lack is an ambition and a goal
what I lack in intuition I make up for with blind hope

maybe Saturday could bring a smile
or a hug or a kiss
from chapped and chattering
winter weathered lips
Well, I guess not and so I have been led
to go out of my head
spinning round in my bed

A cigarette break stumbles blindly into a plain break
went grinning like an imbecile, left like I'd been to a wake

and did you have to wear such pretty clothing
as you struck the final blow
or assume that I don't know shit about clothes?
You're right, now I don't know shit about you
nothing left now to do
so I'll go out of my head
out of my head instead
