Relating to a Psychopath

Album: The Id (2001)

  • Hot like hot wings with hot chocolate in hell
    Cold like in my isolation cell
    In the winter while kissing Mr Freeze
    Take the weather man and blow him away
    Hey hey
    Love is a desert and I need it to rain
    You are so good at keeping me company

    You are relating to a psychopath
    Your role model is in therapy
    You must be real far gone
    You are relating to a psychopath

    Noah's elephants are leaving the ark in eights
    During the upside of my manic depressive state
    Crickets sing in three part harmony

    I try to walk away I choke and I stumble
    I'm flying back so listen close when mumble
    That you are so good at keeping me company.

    [Chorus:]
    You are relating to a psychopath
    Your role model is therapy
    You must be real far gone
    You are relating to a psychopath

    It never adds up when you do your math
    You are relating to a psychopath
    Yes I'm real far gone
    You are relating to a psychopath

    Medication is slow
    And it's when it kicks in that why mind chooses to go
    My feel better begins
    Just when I get attached
    It ends
    I'm insane
    So I remain a psycho
    One, two, three, four

    Cartoon figures dance in my head
    I said, love is butter won't you be my bread
    And you are so good at keeping me company

    [Chorus]
