Tell her or I'll cast away,
Co-defrequent summer holiday,
If I wasn't mourned now one more time...

For if you're rhythmic dancing on the dance floor.
I'm dying the death of a madman for...

Standard procedure,
I serve no use for you.
and i deal w/ everything you do
enough to itemize the truth
i'm amused and i am yours
You witnessed my fallen gene,
That pushes away like a cancer,
And be the count that parted mine,
Handicap that pushes madness between lover,
I'd die to live the badness of a..

Standard procedure,
I serve no use for you.
and i deal w/ everything you do
enough to itemize the truth
i'm amused and i am your new muse

Mind tricks the body,
Body thinks my mind is crazy,
My mind tricks the body,
Body thinks my mind is...
and i deal w/ everything you do
enough to itemize the truth
i'm amused and i am your new muse

The mind tricks the body,
Body thinks my mind is crazy,
The mind tricks the body,
Body thinks my mind is...
and i deal w/ everything you do
enough to itemize the truth
i am amused and i am your new muse

So best of luck to you,
And the burning barge that floats you through.
I'm lost in you for days,
Enjoy the distance as we gaze.
Before I die,
Didn't we say one day?
Maybe not,
Did we say one day?

Standard procedure,
I serve no use for you.
and i deal w/ everything you do
enough to itemize the truth
i'm amused and i am your new muse

    General Commentyup i agree with emo.. the song is about his illness. lines like "fallen gene" and "mind tricks the body..." give it away.

    i think the first like is "demerol castaway." Demerol is a drug used to treat pain (it makes more sense in the context of the song too)

    General CommentThe first line should read "Demerol cast away," not "Tell her or I'll cast away"

    General CommentThis is the new version of the song, which was cut from Worship and Tribute... it's a pretty good song.

    General CommentGreat song, too bad it didn't make the cut for the album. I believe that instead of

    "I'm amused and I am your new muse"

    it's

    "I'm of no use and I am you new muse"

    The ols acoustic version of this song kicks ass too.

    I believe this song is about his sickness and how he feels towards it. How its his "handicap".

    General CommentLove the authentic sound this track has to offer. Nice piano tune and drum beat and of course Daryl makes the whole track happen with his singing.

    "You're my new amuse"
    should be
    "You're my new muse"

    References to his sickness in this song. Know that he really hates the "standard procedures" that he probably had to endure while being in the hospital.
