Lyrics

Could this be an arm around my waist?
Well, surely the hand contains a knife?
It's been so all of my life
Why change now?
- It hasn't -

Now this might surprise you, but
I find I'm OK by myself
And I don't need you
Or your morality to save me
No, no, no, no, no

Then came an arm around my shoulder
Well, surely the hand holds a revolver?
It's been so all of my life
Why change now?
- It hasn't -

Now this might disturb you, but
I find I'm OK by myself
And I don't need you
Or your benevolence to make sense

Noooooooo!
   Noooooooo!
      Noooooooo!
         Noooooooo!

After all these years I find
I'm OK by myself
And I don't need you
Or your homespun philosophy
No, no, no, no

This might make you throw up in your bed:
      I'M OK BY MYSELF!
And I don't need you
And I never have, I never have

Noooooooo!
   Noooooooo!
      Noooooooo!
         Noooooooo!
