|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
