Suburban Relapse

Album: The Scream (1978)
  • I'm sorry that I hit you
    But my string snapped
    I sorry I disturbed your cat-nap
    But whilst finishing a chore
    I asked myself "what for"
    Then something snapped,
    I had a relapse...a suburban relapse
    I was washing up the dishes
    Minding my own business
    When my string snapped
    I had a relapse...a suburban relapse
    [Should I]
    Throw things at the neighbors
    Expose myself to strangers?
    Kill myself or...you?
    Now memory gets hazy?
    I think I must be crazy
    But my string snapped
    I had a relapse...A suburban relapse
