Recorded in 2009.

lyrics

I was lonely for some time
Sitting in my bedroom waiting to die
But then I got over it and changed my mind
And that's what stuck it in
I didn't like the way I felt inside
Yeah I felt so ugly all I did was cry
Just a moping, but the opiates would ease my mind
And that's what stuck it in
And feeling that way is such a silly waste of time
Such a silly waste of time

Hey little lady can you spare me a dime?
I need to make a call on a public line
To the bakers, to the papers, the Parisian mime
That's telling me to tuck it in
I don't like the way he stays outside
Like a chimney sweep working overtime
With his face all white and his skin all tight
I wish he'd take me for a spin
So I could feel more thin as I'm swigging on his gin tonight
Such a silly waste of time

All you people do is freak me out
Yeah, you're going nowhere with me
Oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah

(Solo)

All you people do is freak me out
Yeah, you're going nowhere with me
Oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah

So if you get lonely grow a spine
Remember nobody's gonna wait in line
For you to get over it and put it behind
The rut you get stuck in
Maybe we could take a walk outside
Or maybe talk for a spell, or we can shuck and jive
Just anything that makes me feel alright
Despite the kinda state we're in
Cuz feeling this way is such a silly waste of time
Such a silly waste of time
Oh, such a silly waste of time
Such a silly waste of time
