Diggin' Your Scene

Album: Astro Lounge (1999)
  • tell me why we're all gluttons for pain
    the girl is totally insane
    she doesn't know the meaning of tame
    still I can't put out the flame
    hey hey I want to play on the team that you despise

    every day a new disguise
    every night a Halloween
    she says keep the motor runnin' man
    like I was some machine

    you can talk talk but I'm keepin' her stock
    I wouldn't even change a thing

    why fight you've got me roped and tied
    I hit your baited line
    I'm so diggin' your scene
    I said you're playing with my head
    I could split instead
    I'm so diggin' your scene
    I said you're playing with my head
    I could split instead
    I'm so diggin' your scene

    on you like a hungry tick
    like a junkie knows he ought to kick
    but I don't want to be dope sick
    so I scramble for a fix
    voodoo and sorcery too
    I can't shake your freaky spell

    (repeat chorus)

    can anybody tell me why
    we're springer bound
    why we feel so up when we're kept down
    on a short leash behind a barbed wire fence
    with no change of parole on a life sentence
    my friends tell me I should run they say
    they think she's got a gun
    but that just only turns me on
    right on right on right on
    hey hey I want to play for the team that you despise
