I'm going totally round the bend
I don't wanna see my friends
I don't wanna see my mad friend
Cause he's driving me insane
I don't wanna see my friends
I'm going totally round the bend
Earlier on today I tried to walk down the street
But my feet kept slipping on the pavement

I found myself at ninety degrees to the rest of the world
It's not much fun you take it from me
I'm not having too good a time
There's people worse off than me,
Don't think I don't realise that but
I'm going round the bend again the last thing I wanna do
Is see my friends again
I'm going quietly round the bend again

I try to function as a normal human being
I washed my car earlier on this evening
And now I'm trying to get it together
To cook a little meal
Before I go for a drink with my friends
But I got no food I got no time to go to the supermarket
It's not that I couldn't make time
It's more that I get confused when I get there
People walking past, see the green tray outside
They see a nice little flat imagine a person inside
He's having a great old time
Well I wish I was having a greater time
Than they could possibly imagine that I'm having
All I wanna do is go far away and see things I've never seen before
I like the pyramids they weren't built in a day y'know
? pyramids don't fit the equation

But I'm so paranoid I can't even make it to the supermarket
Let alone go to Egypt and see my favourite pyramid

I go round to Robin's and try and eat some food there
Sometimes its better if you're in the company of a man
He's just said he's had a glass of red wine
So why am I had mine
I listened to The Beach Boys just a minute ago, Wild Honey
It's not the best album but its still pretty good
They've got some funny little love songs on there
It's not really a Brian's production
So its probably not as good as something like Pet Sounds

I'm going totally round the bend
Don't wanna see my friends again
I just wanna be left alone
And never bothered ever again

Never again, ever again
Ever again

    really? no comments??? i LOVE this song. it is the most perfect, misanthropic, sort of harmless sociopathic song in the world. the hermit's theme song. i just wanna be left alone and never bothered, ever again. come on! it's just wonderful.

    Hell yeah, this song is a trip itself in its own right.
