i go wash my clothes – take a shower
scrub my skin ‘till it hurts
wash my face – brush my teeth
i clean my room
drink lots of water
lots of water
turn on the fan

but i can’t get it off – it won’t dissolve
black is all i see

pen on my paper – making a list
of things i need to do
before sundown
i try to make it – try to be good
but the race makes me mad
i can never cure myself

i can’t cure – can’t purify
oh come surprize me
you can do what i can’t
you’re all i need –
all i need

    General Commentto me this sounds like someone who just split with their partner and they're now trying get over it and the smell, taste and the feeling of this person 'wash my clothes, brush my teeth' etc. Seems like the other person is doing just fine, while she's not really able to move on..Quite clever and beautiful i think and just love the trumpet at the end.. only thing i could come up with anyway hehe..
