Bend your knees
My brother sang it that way for years before anyone noticed and told him.
Every day is just another day in this trash heap
Every day is just another day in this tragedy
When you're feeling strong and your pants are long
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's a tragedy
I just drink and drink and drink.
I just drift and drift and drift.
If I lie in a lost and lonely heart of mine
Here I lie in a lost and lonely part of town.
In a lost and lonely heart-attack
In a lost and lonely part of town
It's time to pay
It's hard to bear
Packing it in!
It's a tragedy!!
Sweet sixteen and I'm getting inside of you.
It's reached top speed and I'm getting inside of you.
There's a garden that won't let me free
There's a yearning that won't let me free
Tragedy. When you touch my heart and you make it fart.
When the feeling's gone
And you can't go on
When you lose control
And you got no soul
When you see somebody's head get chopped off
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on, it's
When the morning rise and you don't know why.
When the morning cries and you don't know why.
With no one beside you, you're going away
With no one beside you, you're going nowhere
You're going away.
You're going nowhere.
