she said put your hand here honey have no fear. i said this how the cops get called just to be clear. she said never mind that boy the time is now i did her bidding, hit the bottle and blacked right out she said whisper to me yeah that hits the spot. i said i'm afraid my tongue is tied i seem to have forgot. just what exactly i'm supposed to say in this a-situation 'cuz along with my tongue my hands and feet are tied and i'm beginning to have my reservations i'm gonna die alone i'm gonna die alone i'm gonna die alone this way one more time around the bend now she'll get in you'll get out she said nevermind that sweat the little stuff take this medicine of mine and give it a good puff i want you to treat me so bad i want you to make me your slave 'cuz sometimes I wanna blur the line between what's real and what's fake. i'm gonna die alone i'm gonna die alone i'm gonna die alone this way one more time around the bend now she'll get in you'll get out (x2)

if you really wanna know the truth then say it honey but it doesn't seem to be that way every word that i could say would only hurt you baby so we'll try again another day nah na-na nah for the thousandth time I need you to believe me baby i prefer if it were not this way but since you refuse to ever lose a second honey you put yourself in yet another cage life ain't ever fair, and judging by all your grey hair it would appear to you its clear that this is the case so accept that you can change and move along now honey either love me or be on your way would that i could let it show but it simply isn't so if you could wait but anyway... i've got somewhere to go but you're in the way you had me at hello and now i can't concentrate so much for the mincing words and all the sugar coating i can never get a fuckin' break if you'd only look inside and stop it with the goading then we'd both be on our merry way god dammit i can't stand the thought of ever leavin' but you seem to hate the way i'm made best believe me when i say i'd love if i could change it best believe i'd love for some other way i've got somehwere to go but you're in the way you had me at hello now i can't concentrate i've got somewhere to go but you're in the way you had me at hello and now its all i can do to tell you stay out of my way

you can say it was all a joke just another long night with too much coke like a dream amphetamine choke memories fade away in a haze of smoke you can tell me i'm paranoid but you started with a night and wound up with a year you don't trust anyone i don't trust anything can you tell me what we're doin' here? and i wanna know but i don't wanna hear about it anymore and i know it's gonna break her heart and i know she's gonna cry what's the use? the abuse that you're used to never really had a chance to fade away put it in the back of your mind let it shine bright some other day i'm sick at the thought of it i get a fit every moment your mouth opens still you try, then you cry and you lie and i can't help but wonder where are we going? and i wanna know but i don't wanna hear about it anymore and i know it's gonna break her heart i really thought that we could fly and i know that i can't play the part and i know she's gonna cry she's gonna cry and so am i

heard from a friend our love is over heard you think i got a demon inside heard from a friend there ain't no changin' your mind how many pills did you go and swallow? how many tabs did you put inside? heard from a friend you're halfway there a stones throw away from losin' your mind do as you will heard from a friend you're never sober heard from a friend you're worse than me can't hardly tell who i should believe but your woman went and caught the sickness seems like she got svengali'd guess we'll never know what really happened cuz she's the dog and you hold the leash now do as you will is the pain so pleasant you can't tear yourself away? heard from a friend there's no use trying heard from a friend you're dead inside those could've been the whispers of my mind but you're never gonna win with hiding you'll always be one step behind maybe you're okay with never lookin' in 'cuz you're too afraid of what you might find do as you will. is the pain so pleasant you can't tear yourself away? do as you will.

If you really wanna know what it's about C'mon babe give me the benefit of the doubt How you gonna hear me when you yell so loud And how the hell am I supposed to think when you just shout? Come and find me lying on the bedroom floor Askin' me lately why I think life is such a bore Maybe its because everything circles o'er The future looks exactly like all the times before I said I can't solve the problems that you want me to In the window you gave me to follow through You're yelling so loud its turning your skin blue And I don't posses the patience to listen to you. Tired of explaining myself all the time 'Cuz you won't stop to listen to what's on my mind Babe you know you're really gonna be just fine If you'd let me get a sentence out before you whine I don't wanna be kind I don't wanna wait Takin' all my time You can wait But I will leave you behind Who the hell do you think that you're talking to With that venom spittin' out the front of you If this is what it takes to get you in the mood I'd suggest a xanax, and maybe a drink or two. I don't wanna be the bearer of bad news But to hear anything else you'd simply just refuse God I love ya, but it just makes me confused When you throw a fit and blame everyone else but you. I don't wanna be kind I don't wanna wait You're takin' all my time I don't care if you whine You're makin' me late And nothin' here will ever be right You can wait But I will leave you behind (solo) I don't wanna be kind I don't wanna wait You're takin' all my time I don't care if you whine You're makin' me late And nothing here is right I don't wanna be kind I don't wanna wait You're takin' all my time You can wait But I will leave you behind
