My first mother had a scheme
She just couldn't stand to hear the monkey scream
So bus ticket, ship, train or plane
Take a one way trip AWOL run away
Surrogates document the gloom
I can't stand it
Every time I want to talk to you
Too much static
And you're killing me
The microphone I'm under
Bent over backwards
tongue-tied and rug-burned

X marks the spot
something dull happened here
the motive's been forgotten but the evidence is clear
Tag team evil eyes again
I can't stand it
Every time I enter your room
Too much static
And it's killing me
...
all aboard the soulless train

Packed up her bags one way
I'm nine days old and she forgot to give me a name
Sheared to close to the bloom
I can't stand it
Closer to the surface too soon
too much static
And it's killing me
...
all aboard the soulless freight train
