The mongrel cat came home
Holding half a head
Proceeded to show it off
To all his new-found friends

He said, "I been where I liked
I slept with who I like
She ate me up for breakfast
She screwed me in a vice"

But now I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
Don't know why I feel so skinned alive
I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
Don't know why I feel so skinned alive

My thoughts are misguided and a little naïve
And I twitch and I salivate like with myxomatosis
You should put me in a home or you should put me down
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis
Yeah, no one likes a smart ass but we all like stars

That wasn't my intention! I did it for a reason!
He shook hands with the cripples
And gave them all milk
He did a few card tricks
For his mafia geeks

I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
Don't know why I feel so skinned alive

    General Commentone of the stanzas from the album version is ommitted, alternate ending for the chorus is added in, etc.

    i think one of the best things about this remix is its hollowness, which really centers on Thom's vocal subtleties. Get the Com Lag EP for more info.

    General CommentIt's "He shook hands with the cripples
    And gave them all milk
    He did a few card tricks
    For his mafia geeks"

    Not "yeah his hands went like cripples'
    and he came home ill
    his death-fearing concious
    was nothing that kicks were not"

    General Commentthe sample at the very end of the song sounds very much like one used on The Eraser, in fact I think it might be the exact same one

    and I love the way Thom sings 'mafia geeks' hehehe
