YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO COMB MY HAIR
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO NOT YAWN
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO BRUSH MY TEETH
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO TAKE A BATH
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO PUT ON MASCARA
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO BLOW MY NOSE
YOU GIVE ME A REASON TO DRINK WATER

 

BUT YOU BETTER FALL IN LOVE WITH ME
HURRY
IN A HURRY
IN A HURRY
IN A HURRY
CAUSE I’M GONNA DIE

SO ARE Y’ALL
YOU MIGHT, YOU MIGHT NOT

CHAOTIC MIND

CHAOS UP HERE
CHAOS OVER THERE
CHAOTIC HEAD
CHAOTIC BRAIN
CHAOTIC
BUT NOT ON THE ENGLISH TRAINS
NOBODY TALKS
NOBODY DARES
THEY JUST LOOK
WITH MENACING STARES
I SAY HELLO
THEY PUSH ME OUT THE WAY
THEY DON’T CARE
THEY CAN BE HUMAN ANOTHER DAY
THEY’RE NOT HUMAN
THEY’RE SHELLS
THEY WALK AROUND AND PRETEND
THEY EAT
THEY SWEAT
THEY BATHE
BUT THEY DON’T THINK

DON’T WANT US

THEY WALK IN A CIRCLE
NOT LETTING ANYONE PASS
THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE DIFFERENT
THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE DIFFERENT
BUT THEY WEREN’T

 

THEY WOULDN’T LET US LAUGH
THEY WOULDN’T LET US CRY
THEY WOULDN’T LET US
THEY WOULDN’T LET US SIGH
CAUSE THEY WERE GREAT

 

THEY DON’T WANT US TO LIVE
THEY DON’T WANT US TO HAVE FUN
ESPECIALLY NOT YOU

 

THEY DON’T WANT US TO EXIST
THEY DON’T WANT US TO HAVE BRAINS
THEY DON’T WANT US TO HAVE SHOES
THEY DON’T WANT US TO HAVE A CLUE

DOWN SO LOW

IT SCARED YOU
IT SCARED YOU

 

THEIR HEADS ARE SPINNING
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
THEIR HANDS ARE SHAKING
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
THEY’RE ALREADY DOWN SO LOW
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
THEY’RE DOWN ON THEIR KNEES
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
THEY’RE ALREADY DOWN SO LOW
THEY’RE DIGGING HOLES
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
THEY’RE ALREADY DOWN
DOWN SO LOW
HA HA HA HA

YOU’RE DOWN REALLY LOW
THERE’S NO FURTHER TO GO
HA HA HA HA HA

 

YEAH
UH-HUH, NO

WHO KNOWS

 

YOU, YOU TELL ME ONE THING
BUT YOU DO ANOTHER

MAN ON HIS BACK

I RAN TO CATCH UP WITH HIM
HE WAS WALKING REALLY FAST
WHICH WAS WEIRD
CAUSE HE HAD A MAN ON HIS BACK
THEY BOTH LOOKED AT ME
AND TALKED IN UNISON
I DIDN’T KNOW WHICH ONE TO LOOK AT
I MEAN….WHAT’S THE ETIQUETTE?

 

I TALKED TO THE MAN WALKING
AND DIDN’T GET A RESPONSE
I TALKED TO THE MAN ON HIS BACK
AND THEY RESPONDED IN UNISON

 

THEN THE MAN WALKING
HE STOPPED TALKING
HE LOOKED STRAIGHT AHEAD
HE HAD A PLACE HE WANTED TO GO

 

THE MAN ON HIS BACK
STARTED TELLING ME TALES
GRAND TALES

 

HE LOVED WHERE HE WAS
HE DIDN’T HAVE TO WALK
HE WAS ON A MAN-MADE PLATFORM
HE HAD A VIEW
A HIGH VIEW
HE HAD CONTROL
HE HAD GALL
HE NEVER EVER EVER PERCEIVED A FALL

 

HE TALKED FOR HOURS
HE TALKED FOR WEEKS
HE TALKED FOR MONTHS
HE TALKED FOR YEARS
BUT HE NEVER EVER SAID ANYTHING
HE NEVER AWAKENED MY BRAIN

 

I TIRED OF HIM
I LOOKED AT THE MAN WALKING
I SAID YOU HAVE USELESS WEIGHT ON YOUR BACK
AND HIS EYES LIT UP
HIS BRAIN RECONFIGURED
HE TWISTED HIS BODY
HE JUMPED UP AND DOWN
HE SHOOK THE MAN OFF OF HIS BACK

 

AND THAT MAN HE FELL TO THE GROUND
HE LOOKED CONFUSED
HIS FACE IT GOT REALLY RED
HE FOAMED AT THE MOUTH
HE HAD RAIN ALL IN HIS HEAD
BUT NO ONE CARED

 

NO ONE REALLY CARED

 

HE WANTED RECOGNITION
HE WANTED TO BE TALL

 

HE CRAWLED OVER TO A ROCK
AND THERE AND THERE
AND THERE AND THERE
AND THERE HE SLUMBERED A BIT
AND HE WAITED FOR ANOTHER
TO COME ALONG AND TAKE
HIS WORTHLESS SKIT
HIS WORTHLESS SKIT
