Lyrics

Our frank and open

Deep conversations They get me nowhere They bring me down, so Give it a rest, won't you? Give me a cigarette God give me patience Just no more conversation

Give us a drink And make it quick Or else I'm gonna be sick Sick all over Your frankly vulgar Red pullover Now see how the colours blend

Our frank and open Deep conversations They get me nowhere They just bring me down, so Give it a rest, won't you? Now will you just give over The world may be ending But look, I'm only human

So Give us a drink And make it quick Or else I'm gonna be sick All over Your frankly vulgar Red pullover Now see how the two colours blend My friend Won't somebody...

...Won't somebody stop me From thinking, from thinking all the time About everything Oh, somebody From thinking all the time So deeply So bleakly So bleakly all the time About everything? (Who I am) (How I end up here) (Somebody, somebody, somebody...) Somebody stop me From thinking From thinking all the time So bleakly, so bleakly From thinking all the time
