Artist Rheostatics, The
Record Body Count
Joey pulled himself to his knees,
Pulled his body back up the bank
and looked back down there.
Said the water was not that deep,
But I almost drowned there
You can drown in a bathtub
So they... Say.
Someone in class called me a loser
So I decided to skip the day
(hey hey) skip the day.
Tried to look casual sneakin round the back
As I shotput across the track
Into the gate beside the portables
But a red tie and school gray slacks
Doesn't blend in with the grass
As the teacher was changing class
He chased me half way through the park
Till I ran into the woods
Then I'm (very good) in the woods!
So I was an Indian
The player by the creek
And dried my eyes there.
There's a record body count this year
There's a record body count this year!
Joey stepped up on a block of ice,
Put a rope around his neck.
Fell asleep before he died
