  • So call the cops
    Tell 'em to come pick me up
    They'll break out the cuffs
    When I get there I'll act tough

    Nurse can take my blood and pills
    Mental analysis
    I won't sleep tonight
    For resin burn too bright

    So come on down
    Bail me out
    Don't act too concerned
    The cops are bustin' all of us
    Don't know who to trust
    Yesterday we went too far

    I hope that I can make some friends
    Split some cider you put in
    They don't talk a lot
    Now they're sleepin' in my car

    Oh come on Mom,
    Collect those that will make her cry
    I'm a stupid son
    I was only havin' fun

    So come on down
    Bail me out
    Don't act too concerned
    The cops are bustin' all of us
    Don't know who to trust
    Reading the tags on the wall

    I can't believe you called the cops
    Can't believe they picked me up
    They broke out the cuffs
    But I never acted tough

    So come on down
    Bail me out
    Don't act too concerned
    The cops are bustin' all of us
    Don't know who to trust
    Yesterday we went too far Publisher: ROUGH TRADE PUBLISHING
