lyrics

I want, I want things
Want tomorrow to up and get lost
Want some sleep
Cause the en (cause the end is near) cyclopedias
Kissed the flames
And my bo (oh this bothersome thing) ttle is empty
Like my wallet tell me

How we’ve come
To our own Schizophrenia
But you’re all I see (I will see)
You at ten with your keys

I want to tell you
It’s a terribly bad mistake, It won’t do
Cause there’s things (oh they’re bad things) that could bite you
(bad bad things) if I’m gone (oh they’re animals,animals)
Whereas I (whereas i) only bite you (I will bite)
Where you want want me, we know

We’re come
To our own Schizophrenia
But it’s fine by me
Can’t we stay in Arcadia
Where you’re all I see (I will see)
You at ten with your keys

We were so merry
We were so merry
We were so merry
(I don’t understand why this is changing, this is changing)
We were so merry
(I don’t understand why this is changing, this is changing)

I won’t (I will not) I won’t
I won’t call you
I’ll just slip in from your back door, like a cat
I will watch (oh she’s late) as you miss me
(oh she’s late) when I’m late
You will change (take me back) your mind (take me back)
While I take my leave, oh

We’re still
In our own Schizophrenia
But it’s fine by me
Can’t we stay in Arcadia
But you’re all I see (I will see)
You at ten
But you won’t (you won’t see)
See me
I will never leave
