Oh, it’s not easy keeping up With your imagination My head is treading Through a course of chutes and ladders Just to try to follow you To understand Tell me that you have a plan You’re on a roll But you have lost control It’s hard to say What I see happening Oh, take a step back from yourself And then maybe you will notice Your answering machine Has a collection of the fleeting thoughts You couldn’t bear to throw away And as they play back I can see you Rambling into the receiver Making one of these “collect calls” From a pay phone in the rain Saying something barely They’re coming to take you away You’re on a roll But you have lost control It’s hard to say What I see happening You only want what you deserve You only want what you think You earned, you earned Well kid, you’ll learn You’re on a roll But you have lost control It’s hard to say What I see happening Oh no, I don’t want to say

Sympathy Is taking over every inch of me But I have my own life And I can’t be bother with these juvenile melodramas anymore Don’t talk to me ‘Cause all you have are your sad stories Way to bring a room down And you’re bumming me out And messing with my head You’re such a chore I don’t mean to be empathetic But I guess it’s the just way it is with me It’s all because you’re just so pathetic And I can’t just sit back when I see Everything going wrong And it seems like you’re not strong enough To fend for yourself Apologies All sought on your behalf, but just by me I do your dirty work And never seem to get anything out of it I’m a sympathy whore A disease Dyslexic compassion and jealousy Sick, twisted mind of mine that thinks my good deeds Will win me a shiny silver trophy of some sort I don’t mean to be empathetic But I guess it’s the just way it is with me It’s all because you’re just so pathetic And I can’t just sit back when I see Everything going wrong And it seems like you’re not strong enough To fend for yourself

Must be exhausting for you Kicking down those doors I can’t imagine what it Must have been like before We really owe you one Our own Napoleon It will all be okay If you just show us the way Through this brave new world We are all so afraid And rock and roll is so changed And you are leading the herd I know you’re new at this But don’t be insecure With our years of service to commerce Success is sure We are the followers Your record label earned That shit really pays off (That IS true) It will all be okay If you just show us the way Through this brave new world We are all so afraid And rock and roll is so changed And you are leading the herd And you are so fucking good

Well I guess that I should let you know It doesn’t particularly tickle me at all No, I’m not in the least impressed When you show up on my doorstep Drunk and overdressed Well I guess that I should be afraid Of all the dumpsters full of enemies I’ve made Well I got myself into some trouble So slide me another drink And make it double Well you’re no help to me We’re just a couple alcoholics Dodging tragedy And we’ve got lots to learn A fresh dynamic duo Headed straight For disaster Well I guess that I should watch my step And I guess that I should try to break these bad habits And since you’re my partner in crime Maybe it’s best if we quit At the same time But you’re a very toxic influence And I know you’ll never help me out of this abyss Yeah, I got myself into a jam So I’m drinking myself to death As fast as I can Well you’re no help to me We’re just a couple alcoholics Dodging tragedy And we’ve got lots to learn A fresh dynamic duo Headed straight For disaster I don’t think I’ll ever get over This addiction of mine And god knows that I probably won’t even try But it’s not my poisonous ways That I gotta lose Because the real truth is I’m just addicted to you Oh, you’re no help to me We’re just a couple alcoholics Dodging tragedy And we’ve got lots to learn A fresh dynamic duo Headed straight For disaster

I’m sorry that I can’t Let your feelings out for you But I don’t know you well enough To get inside your head I’m sorry that you think I’m ruining this chance for you But we both know that’s not the truth So let’s be honest Don’t know what I’m trying for All this has been done before And it’s still the same song Nothing gets me high enough Nothing is quite right enough Doesn’t this feel all wrong? I’m sorry that you don’t See the poetry in this But somewhere I think you have missed The punchline of the joke I’m sorry that it’s not Everything you dreamed it’d be But I don’t see what you see Underneath these urban folk No, I take it back Why should I apologize? This melody is a disguise Just read between the lines It’s not that hard to crack These are temporary rhymes And it’s the last damn time They say that people never change Don’t know what I’m trying for All this has been done before And it’s still the same song Nothing gets me high enough Nothing is quite right enough Doesn’t this feel all wrong? Alright
