• February

    something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear
    a memory of some sort a child's tear
    something's gonna drag me down before too long
    maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this song
    february can be real brutal
    but this year we're getting lots of sunny days
    life has its way of pampering you sometimes
    in meaningless n' stupid n' pathetic sort of ways
    i've had some newfound creativity flowing through me
    a buzz of opinions and ideas gushing through me
    most days n' most nights are a lot less gloomy
    it's like i look at myself and i see a new me
    well maybe 'new' isn't exactly what i mean
    because it's more like i feel that what i'm actually seeing
    is a freer me an easier me not a bitter me a sweeter me
    the kind of me i could have been if this wouldn't have happened or if
    my heart was tin
    but then again in the back of my head
    i know this can't last there's a giant slope ahead
    it's all a matter of when i begin the descent
    to the depths that no one can mend
    something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear
    a memory of some sort a child's tear
    something's gonna drag me down before too long
    maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this song, maybe this song
    going to a party later tonight
    don't really want to but i should be polite
    to the people who invited me- friends of mine
    sometimes i have pictures of them in my mind
    at your funeral all red eyed n' teary
    tonight their gonna be all chit chat n' cheery
    at your funeral with stubble n' a trembling bottom lip
    tonight at the party they'll all attempt to look hip
    hop around, maybe dance a little
    have a drink eye a woman and advance a little
    do just what i would have done once upon a time
    before the mutant cell you were hosting committed its crime
    before it picked you in your prime- but that's enough!
    please! please no more of this stuff!
    these thoughts and myself just like bonnie n' clyde
    the party's starting i better get ready so i don't miss my ride
    something's gonna drag me down soon- that's clear
    a memory of some sort a child's tear
    something's gonna drag me down before too long
    maybe a photo, i don't know, maybe this...
    something's gonna drag me down soon that's clear
    a menu a street sign a child's tear
    something's gonna drag me down before too long
    maybe this party tonight who knows... maybe this song, probably this song.
