The Lyrics

This one goes out to a girl I know who follows me around EVERWHERE, making absolutely sure that I stay as close to the edge of sanity as possible. The sad thing is, she thinks we're wonderful friends, but in truth she's the proverbial bug up the bum.
Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is terror in most everything I see
Dark grey clouds in the sky
Feels like soap in my eyes
And I kind of hope that it's a bad dream

Everything I hate the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to he-ell that I've seen

I'm in the pits of the world scowlin' up at creation
And the only explanation I can find
Are the problems I've found ever since you've been around
You have put me in the pits of the world.

Your therapist and mother know my name
And I can't tell them that you drive me insane
If I could please cut your legs off at the knees
There'd be a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow you'll be miles far away from me
All I need will be mine if you aren't here

I'm in the pits of the world scowlin' up at creation
And the only explanations I can find
Are the problems I've found ever since you've been around
You have put me in the pits of the world
