Half-dead on the sofa
Curling up in cotton
Looking for some soft soap on a TV

Little mary jane
Wash away my brain
Make us feel like hippies from the 60s

Lying here complaining
That nothing's ever changing
Can't get off my butt to save my life

But there's nothing we can do
With Jesus on their side
The day that Bush and Cheney got back in

You're the only thing I know
You're the place I want to be
Lock me up inside your soul
And throw away the key
You're my air on the moon
I'm the lighter, you're the spoon
If I ever let you go it'll be too soon

Half-alive on the sofa
Like a hungry little gopher
Swallowing all the things I know ain't true

Up there on the screen
TV's little Jesus
I'd like to pull my eyes out with a tweezers

We can't get up and riot
Cos we're all so damn tired
Think I'll lie back down and read the bible

With Jesus on their arms
Bring back Vietnam
The day that Bush and Cheney got back in

You're the only thing I know
You're the place I want to be
Lock me up inside your soul
And throw away the key
You're my air on the moon
I'm the lighter, you're the spoon
If I ever let you go it'll be too soon

    General CommentI love these lines:

    You're my air on the moon
    I'm the lighter, you're the spoon
    If I ever let you go it'll be too soon

    can't live without her, a dangerous addiction, with a hint of uncertainty. Just how I feel about my girl...
