I was sitting with a bloody head, outside of X
At the Berkeley Square
In my proud boy dumbness
Half drunk, half sexed, half conscious
Lenny had said, "Shouldn't you check it?"
I said, checking is for wimps

So, I flew into the hedge, up and above
Looking at the blue skies below
Flying like a dove
I was head over heels
When I hit the manhole cover
Kathleen walked up, said, "You alright?"
No, I'm in pain, duh


Well, sleeveless shirts and Catholic school skirts
"Small girls, big cars" Al says
For me, it's the other way around
She said, "Just show me where it hurts"
I said, you can pick me up and take me home
Or just join me on the ground


And we could have some kids
If we're lucky, they'll be gay
And we could be proud parents in the pride parade
I swear I almost cry every year when they go by
If I'd only been a girl instead of a guy, Kathleen

    General CommentAaron writes the lyrics for Pinhead Gunpowder. Why does everyone think Billie writes them? Meh, its annoying...But aside from that, I LOVE this song. (Psst...He's talking about hedgediving, one of the most painful and most fun activities. Ever) ;]

    General CommentHedgediving = awesome. Aaron is a lyrical genius because this song is great. It makes me want to laugh outloud and say "YEA!"

    General CommentI think this song is about how Aaron started hitting on this girl he was sure that he loved but it turned out she was a lesbian and he was really upset that he couldn't have a chance with her.
