lyrics

When I picked myself up off the bathroom floor I was
still shaking with agues and unsure
of how to push myself
through the indignities of the day.
So I went back into the kitchen,
where my friend from the previous night was still drinking,
and with his glassy eyes and glass in hand he turned to me to say:

THIS HAPPENS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER

And in the cruel daylight
we moved to different rhythms, to fight different fights.
I was looking for a job that I didn’t want,
he was looking for some kind of grave to haunt.
And when I got that job it nearly tore me apart:
I WAS DESPERATE FOR A DIFFERENT WAY.
But the truth springs from that awful place in your heart
that wakes you in the night to say:

THIS HAPPENS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER
ITS NEVER OVER UNTIL YOU’RE DEAD.

When I laid back down on the bathroom floor I was
still shaking with agues and unsure.
