As the rain falls, my umbrella doesn't always work
drip drop drip drop splish splashing in my brain
It's a flood honey, a real mach five
Oh dear, I fear a dreadful drizzle my dear
It's time to fly south with the mice
Dripping dripping dripping in my Sunday morning tea
One lump or two? How do you do? It's the monopoly guy
These mice aren't blind, baby, but I guess they don't see the light
But you know, maybe it's just dark or something baby, I don't know
It could be the wool pulled over their eyes
by father time or a gardening bird
I like to write but my hands aren't working for me
I've just created the unabated understatement of the century
It could be the wool pulled over my eyes
but that's just a refrain

    General Commenti love the lyrics. they definitely look like ryan.
    i think its definitely from the cabin songs.
    just like "Nearly Witches" ("The Paul Revere Jumpsuit Apparatus"-AKA Panic) that was released on the Fall Out Boy Citizens for Betterment Mixtape.

    General CommentThis obviously WASN'T on Pretty. Odd. It was one of the many songs (about 10) that they were planning to put on the new album, but decided to start from scratch. It may appear on future albums.

    General Commentnice. much better than that other long titled piece of garbage. i think this is the time in which they partake of drugs.

    ...I'm interested to see their new attempts to kill the scene and shun the scenesters. maybe this is one of them??

    General CommentOnce again, some random person could have just made these up and said they are Panics.
