THE OPUS

She’d get up and drink coffee

I’d sit back and smoke pot

Never really thought much about it

Never really thought a whole lot

Things are different now

Things are different now

Got a brand new bone to chew

Never used to think about nothing

Now i only think about you

 

She’d get up by the window

I’d stay laid in the bed

Never really knew what to say

And i don’t remember what i said

Things are different now

Things are different now

Got a new hole in my shoe

Always gotta take care of something

And right now i wanna take care of you

 

Aye aye aye

I tried, am i on trial?

I’m a child inside, don’t smile when I ask ya

That’s the way to get your ass kicked

 

That’s all you really want

That’s all you really wanted

Just to talk with your cocked head and nod

And walk around the garden

I suppose you go to bed at night

Exhausted yet excited

Doesn’t count it doesn’t count

Until you’re pissed off just like i am

 

She’d bring lemonade

When they weren’t ready

She’d ask about home

And they’d laugh all sweaty

Lil bastards

Couldn’t look right at her after

So i made a withdrawal

Don’t talk about it

I learned a new call

And well thats how i found her

Lil casper

Our cabin’s a disaster

 

Well I’m a lil more bigger now

A lil less trigger

I love the lil things a lil more

I’m never gonna get too excited

If you promise that you’ll never get bored

 

Aye aye aye

I tried, am i on trial?

I’m a child inside, don’t smile when I ask it

That’s the way to get your ass kicked

 

If you don’t spill it

Then you’re in the clear

Whatever doesn’t kill me

Makes me weirder

If you don’t feel it

Then why are you here?

You can conceal it

But we can still see it

 

That’s all you really want

That’s all you really wanted

Just to talk with your cocked head and nod

And walk around the garden

I suppose you go to bed at night

Exhausted yet excited

Doesn’t count it doesn’t count

Until you’re pissed off just like i am

 

Day in, day out

I stay in

I stay out the way

 

You followed me home

You made a wrong turn

I start feeling all alone

 

You thought well of me once

But once you saw

What i call home

You had to go

 

You thought well of me once

But once we got here

You aint thought of me once

You think you’re sparing me

But you’re just scaring me

I want what i want!

When you’re mad i don’t matter

I don’t factor in

I got a masters in psychology

But back home all i read

Is cosmopolitan

 

So average

It won’t happen

They got your back up on the wall

But all you had were back-ups all along

 

Did you not decide

You were not quite dedicated

 

In the preparation they were reveling

Where every smell was a revelation

And it tastes better

But it takes forever

And it takes everyone’s help

 

But you can run along

With your little runny eyes, go

When the lights come on

You gotta decide

Where you belong though

 

You’ve been on my mind

Have you been on my medication

 

The light below

It made your eyes glow

You made a wide grin

Now theres sin in your bowl

 

The flame grows

And the faces of those who came close

Fade in

 

Day in, day out

I stay in

I stay out the way

 

Maybe all i got left is the one side

I can cover up but i got nothing to hide

I just stare into space

I put my hands to my blank face

And cry

Whatcha think about that

Cause i don’t got a thing to think about

Futures no fun, moment’s over/done

And i never loved anything or anyone

 

My friends are responsive, yeah

My friends are demonstrative, i guess

But they’ll only get a call from me, if i

Think of them as a commodity, at best

 

All i got left is the one side

It never looked better

Than that night

I was covered in feathers

When i was discovered

You start growing hair

And then everyone wonders

 

Whatcha think about that

Why dontcha go and think about it

And come right back

Yeah once you got your finger on that

You figure out how the whole thing’s attached

And you get mad

And you wanna get even

You’re already getting fat off

40% of the people though

But you don’t care

You don’t care either, you’re just more aware

You don’t scare

You don’t scare easy, so you don’t prepare

 

Ooh you got your simmer down-pat

You got your simmer down-pat

Well you can simmer down now

Yeah we got the kids around back

And we still gotta live around here for now

You’ve got tactful attacks

I’ll give you that

But I’m gonna need it right back from you

You’ll be sorry by the sackful, in fact

you’ll be sorry right when I ask you that

 

I might have a reaction! Guys, I might have a reaction!

Guys, sign on to my passion

Find online how to access me

But if I come into contact

You gotta act

You gotta call on my emergency contact

Fast!

 

It’s just my grandma, it’s just my aunt

They won’t answer but they’ll call back

 

I’m sorry when you asked me i was high

I’m obviously happy to comply

I’ve forgotten all the policies but I

Solemnly promise to fall in line

 

What i love best is a fun time

Cause all i got left is the one side
