Alone and left to ponder everything
Alone and left to puzzle out all the pain
Such a silly, silly, silly thing
You must catch it and cease it while you can

Accusations flying, colliding, cheek to cheek
Button up your lip and think before you speak
Oh, see him fly into a rage
And see her cry in her tantrum cage
Too blind to halt this stupid game

Silly thing
Silly thing

Now, all that's left is a feeling very grim
Alone and left to think about the stupid thing
Yes, she would fly into a rage
And he would cry in his tantrum cage
A replay of this dumb charade

Silly thing
Silly thing

I misunderstood you, I buried my head in sand
Please accept my feelings of remorse and take my hand
Such a silly thing, can destroy a man
For such a silly thing to come between such friends
Is hard to imagine or believe

Silly thing
Silly thing

Such a silly, silly, silly thing
You must catch it and cease it while you can
Silly, silly, silly thing
You must catch it and cease it while you can

Silly thing

    General CommentAfter making 'Peepshow', Siouxsie and Severin had a fight (i think it may have been over Severin's girlfriend), and they stopped speaking for a while. This was written and recorded a couple of years later, when they'd made up and were putting 'Superstition' together.
