Information

Lyrics

The whispering may hurt you

But the printed word might kill you The whispering may hurt you But the printed word might kill you

So don't let the blue The blue eyes fool you They're just gelignite Loaded and aiming right between your eyes

CDs and t-shirts, promos, God knows You know I couldn't last Someone please take me home

The teenagers who love you They will wake up, yawn, and kill you The teenagers who love you They will wake up, yawn, and kill you

So don't let the blue The blue eyes fool you They're just gelignite Loaded and aiming right between your eyes

CDs and t-shirts, promos, God knows You know I couldn't last Someone please take me home There's a cash-register ringing And it weighs so heavy on my back Someone please take me home

The critics who can't break you They somehow help to make you The critics who can't break you Unwittingly, they make you

So don't let the good days Of the gold discs creep up and mug you No, no, no, no, no!

With evil legal eagles You know I couldn't last Accountants rampant You know I couldn't last

Every -ist and every -ism Thrown my way to stay And the Northern leeches go on Removing, removing, removing

Then in the end Your royalties bring you luxuries Your royalties bring you luxuries Oh but, the squalor of the mind The squalor of the mind The squalor of the mind The squalor of the mind
