The Lyrics

"He" in this song refers to Curt Smith, co-founder of the band, after he split from Roland Orzabal and went solo. The parody pretty much wrote itself.
Is he an horrific dream
Is he sinking fast
And could Roland be so mean
As to laugh and laugh?

On his own, can he ease his load?
Can you see his pain?
Could you please explain
The Curting

Could you understand his songs
As he cries in pain
No one's buying his CDs
And so he feels ashamed

All along, he's been told he's wrong
But he thinks he's right
So we're left to fight
The Curting

Get in line with the Curt you know
Feel his pain, feel his sorrow
Touch his hurt and don't let go
Don't let go, don't let go

Get in line with the Curt you know
As he cries like a baby
Because Roland won't come back
Won't come back, won't come back...
