She changes the way I thought of awkward situations
when I met the eyes
of an arrid woman
mayonnaise hair soaked in piss
Gumming on the seat before her
she shifts her leg
with breath of cat food
and eyes as sad as the punished infant
she leans in my direction

I've been thinking about how things that always made sense before just kind of stopped altogether when I inherited my terrible condition
Now I can't stop thinking about sun and paper and other things a woman my age shouldnt be thinking about
and it makes my stomach rot

I guess what Im trying to say
is lose yourself
as soon as possible
and it doesnt feel good but it doesnt feel bad either but theres nothing I can do about it
But sit here and fall apart.

    Song MeaningAnother schizophrenic episode of Robert Smith's. The woman is telling of Robert's own experience in dealing with his illness. The last verse is a message directly from Smith regarding the condition.

    Lyric CorrectionShe changed the way I thought of awkward situations when I met the eyes of an arrid woman, mayonnaise hair, soaked in piss. Gumming on the seat before her; she shifts her leg. With breath of cat food and eyes as sad as the punished infant, she leans in my direction. "I've been thinking about how things that always made sense before just kind of stopped altogether when I inherited my terrible condition. Now I can't stop thinking about sun and paper and other things a woman my age shouldn't be thinking about. And it makes my stomach rot." I guess what I'm trying to say is lose yourself as soon as possible, before you can't even tell if its something. And you get stuck; 'cause I'm stuck. And it doesn't feel good, but it doesn't feel bad either, and I can't do anything about it, but just sit here and fall apart.

    General CommentActually milano is completely correct. The lead vocalist had indeed been diagnosed as an undifferentiated schizophrenic and he also added lyrics that were missing. I have searched high and low for a lyrics sight that has all the lyrics, but they always are missing the same line 'before you can't even tell if it's something'. Milano's 'version' (the correct version) has that missing line and actually adds a lot more to the song. These are not his 'interpretations' of the song, these are the actual lyrics. They need to be updated to reflect Milano's.
