Why don't you ever want to' play
I'm tired of this piece of string
You sleep as much as I do now
And you, don't eat much of anything

I don't know who your talking to
I made a search through every room
But all I found was dust that moved
And shadows of the afternoon

And listen about those bitter songs you sing
They're not helping anything
They won't make you strong
So we should open up the house

Invite the tabby two doors down
You can ask you sister if
She doesn't bring her basset hound
Ask the things you shouldn't miss:

Tape hiss and the modern man
The Cold War and Card Catalogues
To come and join us if they can
For girly drinks and parlour games

We'll pass around the easy lie
Of absolutely no regrets
And later maybe you could try
So let your losses dangle on

The sharp edge of the century
We'll talk about the weather or
How the weather use to be
And I'll cater

With all the birds that I can kill
Let their tiny feathers fill
Disappointment
Lie down

And lick the sorrow from your skin
Scratch the terror and begin
To believe your strong
All you ever want to do is

Drink and watch T.V.
Frankly that thing
Doesn't really interest me
I swear I'm gonna bite you hard

And taste your tinty blood
If you don't stop the self defeating
Lies you've been repeating since
The day you brought me home,

I know your strong.
