I guess i'll make it clear now
we all hate ourselves
how many more now? Drive myself insane before i've driven everyone away
if i could walk for a moment of this (bar?) til i hit the floor
if i could walk from one end of this town
to the other
goes away
the only reason people try to talk to each other
is cos they gotta say something
that is smarter than the other one said
everyone's fucking crazy
people never listen to what you have to say
cos their so damn scared
that you'll be smarter than them some day
everyone's fucking crazy
but i hate these flourescent lights
if i could walk for a moment every spore and cell
i'd hit the floor
if i could walk from one end of this town
to the other
i wouldn't go anywhere at all
i could talk to you and you could talk to me
i would say anything at all
i could talk to you and you could look at me
i would say anything at all
the only reason people try to talk to each other
is cos they gotta say something
that is smarter than the other one said
everyone's fucking crazy
people never listen to what you have to say
cos their so damn scared
that you'll be smarter than them some day
everyone's fucking crazy
but i just hate these flourescent lights

    General CommentMost of these lyrics are completely wrong. Granted, sometimes it's hard to hear Carissa's Wierd's quiet singer, but it's like this person heard the song once and tried to write the lyrics up from memory. I'll write a more correct version soon and post it here.

    General CommentThis is the best I could do, they're not perfect because it is really hard to understand some of the lines, but it's in a decent format and mostly correct.


    I guess I’ll make it clear now,
    we all hate ourselves,
    ???? (line indecipherable)
    I’ll drive myself insane before
    I’ve driven everyone away

    And I could walk from one end of this bar
    ‘til I hit the floor,
    And I could walk from one end of this town
    to the other
    ...never go away

    The only reason people talk to each other’s
    cause they gotta say something that is smarter than the other one said,
    everyone’s fuckin’ crazy
    people never listen to what you’ll have to say
    cause they’re so damn scared you’ll be smarter than them one day,
    everyone’s fuckin crazy
    But I, I hate these fluorescent lights

    And I could walk from one end of this bar
    until I hit the floor
    and I could walk from one end of this town
    to the other,
    I would go anywhere at all
    I could talk to you and you could talk to me
    I would say
    anything at all
    I could talk to you and you could look at me
    I won’t say,
    anything at all

    The only reason people talk to each other’s
    cause they gotta say something that is smarter than the other one said,
    everyone’s fuckin’ crazy
    People never listen to what you’ll have to say
    cause they’re so damn scared you’ll be smarter than them one day,
    everyone’s fuckin’ crazy
    But I just hate these fluorescent lights

    General CommentOn the live version of this song off I before e it sounds like he says "Sleep is all the fun I'll have anymore now" or something like that. I know that doesn't make alot of sense.
