lyrics

What did you slip me
or what did I take
besides the blame, again
Followed you right over
Lemming-like
And now it’s getting quite… quite…
Strange-shaped
Slow fade

How does this fit together
What was my name, again?
That doesn’t sound familiar
Could you speak clearer

Emerge fully formed
Desperate to be warm

Hey now friend
whose ends did you intend to fray?
Did you spend a thousand pennies
on revenge so you could say
“My hands smell like pennies!”
Such a smell
I know it all too badly
Come right at me, brother
I crawled inside that plantain
And now you’re gonna peel me, peel me
Oh, you’re gonna peel me ha
You’re gonna, you’re gonna ha
You’re gonna peel ha
You’re gonna ha
You’re gonna peel me, peel me, peel
