Don't say this:
"Leave me with your brown boots behind the door and come to bed.
Everybody lies, I never said I'd be happy"
Don't say it, don't injure your mouth trying to show me
Where you've been. I've seen everything
You can't ambush behind the tomcat grin
Sad sad, tomcat
That's all it is, blood in your ears
Watching the feet while the song disappears

Don't save this.
Put on your best suit, wash and go.
Get out of my head.
Everybody lies but let's be happy
I am gorgeous, pink and skimpy
Let's be famous, let's be happy, and obnoxious
Thick and skinny, rich and famous

That's a hideous void in your ears
Watching the moon while the sky disappears
That's all there is, that's all I know
Got a couple of friends, say I told you so

    General Commentlove this song.
    and I love the end part with Emily and someone I'm gonna assume is James talking to some random lady.
    beat me up with your guitar
    is this what we've learnt so far?
    fat cigar between your legs
    no one likes a woman that begs

    General CommentGah. I want to slap that stupid drunk women to death.

    I wonder what manner of grin, precisely, is a tomcat grin?

    General Commentyeah it is a homeless woman, and it makes it somewhat ironic because the homeless woman (who may beg people for money) reads "no one likes a woman that begs" and she probably doesn't even realise what she's reading due to her intoxication.

    General Comment"That's a hideous void in your ears" should definitely be "That's all it is, blood in your ears"

    General CommentLove this song. I'm pretty sure these are the lyrics:

    Don't say this
    Leave it with your brown boots behind the door and come to bed
    Everybody lies, I never said I'd be happy
    Don't say it
    Don't injure your mouth trying to show me where you've been
    I've seen everything
    You can't hide much behind that tomcat grin
    Sad sad tomcat
    That's how it is, blood in your ears
    Watching your feet while the song disappears

    Don't say this.
    Put on your best suit, wash and go
    Get out of my head
    Everybody lies but

    let's be happy (oh, let's be happy)
    I am gorgeous (oh, I am gorgeous)
    Pink and skimpy (pink, pink, skimpy)
    Let's be famous (let's be famous)
    Let's be happy (oh, let's be happy)
    And obnoxious (and obnoxious)
    Pink and skinny (pink pink pink and skinny)
    Rich and famous, rich and famous

    That's how it is, blood in your ears
    Watching the moon while the sky disappears
    That's all there is and that's all I know
    Got a couple of friends, see I told you so
