Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)
  • Tick-tock, sweat, switch up the fingers,
    The silly integer's always on vacation
    I didn't think it was a bad idea,
    I just couldn't figure out how to make the phone work

    That said, it was no different from the others,
    Except that this is now and that was then and everything
    Seems to repeat in a cyclical pattern,
    I hum myself to misery and wish these words against my pillow

    I will try not to lose control

    Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again.
    I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
    If it were anybody else but you, I would not be afraid.
    A total calamity, the choices I have made

    Rip scripts, slash, burn up the courage,
    That tiny, yellow cat- always on vacation
    I wish I hadn't been so damn obscure,
    I just try too hard for the perfect word score

    Can't stand it, end up cursing out the covers,
    A little chain and people restless like an effigy
    Damn you, camera, lack of emotion,
    I'll swing my blades at everyone,
    Whack their heads and run for cover

    Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again.
    I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
    If it were anybody else but you, I would not be afraid.
    A total calamity, the choices I have made

    Come help me figure it out,
    Come help me get it right this time around
    If you can figure it out,
    Then you could help me loosen up, get me off the ground

    Hysteria, hysteria, it's happening again
    I fall apart, I fall apart, I'm back where I began
    If it were anybody else but you, I would not be afraid
    A total calamity, the choices I have made
    A total calamity, the choices I have made
    A total calamity, the choices I have made Writer/s: Robert John Lange, Richard Savage, Philip Kenneth Collen, Joseph Thomas Elliott, Richard John Cyril Allen, Stephen Maynard Clark
