Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)

  • There's a stain, there's a stain, there's a stain on the floor
    I wanna soak, wanna scrub, wanna clean (anymore?)
    But all the nurses are refusing to let me out of bed
    And my eyes are pouring nightly

    There's a crowd, there's a crowd, there's a crowd on my ward
    I'm full of joy, full of glee, jubilation and more
    These crazy stupid mother fuckers never leave me alone
    And my lungs are wheezing slightly

    There's a buzz, there's a buzz, there's a buzzing of bugs
    From flower beetles, yellow jackets, silverfishes to slugs
    It's always raining caterpillars from the circular fan
    And my heart is pounding brightly

    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates the things I take
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates the things I take

    There's a voice, there's a voice, there's a voice in my head
    It's rather soothing and it tells me I'd be better off dead
    But if I beat maybe punch it even kick it away
    Then everything will be (all rightly?)

    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates the things I take
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates

    I didn't know it was hot in the middle
    I touched it once then I touched it a second time
    'Cause I am that naive
    A myriad of bright ideas
    I didn't know I'd get caught in the middle
    I touched it once and I touched it a second time
    'Cause I am that naive
    A myriad of bright ideas

    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates the things I take
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    I swim in pharmaceuticals
    The medicine deactivates

    I didn't know it was hot in the middle
    I touched it once then I touched it a second time
    'Cause I am that naive
    A myriad of bright ideas
    I didn't know I'd get caught in the middle
    I touched it once then I touched it a second time
    'Cause I am that naive
    A myriad of bright ideas Writer/s: Jesse Mack Johnson, Joshua Allen Cain, Justin C Pierre, Matthew Scott Taylor, Tony Richard Thaxton
