my lyricsbox
are you weary as water
in a faucet left dripping
with an incessant sadness
like a sad record skipping
and an ugly and ornery
and shadowy dread
lurking like a troll under the bridge
between your heart and your head

she came to and her
whole life was how she remembered it
she had a mouth full of fur
and she was laughing
she parked her hearse across
three spaces posted "motorcycles only"
and jumped out shouting
what the cus could make a nice girl like us
feel so lonely?

are you weary as water
in a faucet left dripping
with an incessant sadness
like a sad record skipping
and an ugly and ornery
and shadowy dread
lurking like a troll under the bridge
between your heart and your head

please dumb blind kind sir
lend little miss listless just a little bit of christmas
she's been a real good girl
but now she's stuck here
the world is so little and still
mysterious and ominious as ever before
like an unmarked bottle full of pills
on the shelf right next to the thing
you were reaching for

are you weary as water
in a faucet left dripping
with an incessant sadness
like a sad record skipping
and an ugly and ornery
and shadowy dread
lurking like a troll under the bridge
between your heart and your head

swing the groove 'round here
where i can reach it
when i get my ass back on track
i'm gonna need it
swing shift til i get the money
to buy me and my baby a moon full of honey
then i'm gonna turn the nagging voices
inside my head
that follw me to bed and fill my head with (you suck)

are you weary as water (what'd you do that for?)
in a faucet left dripping
with an incessant sadness
like a sad record skipping
and an ugly and ornery
and shadowy dread
lurking like a troll under the bridge
between your heart and your head
(end of radio version rest is only on To the Teeth)
if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
no walls up break it down (break it down down)
happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
racism stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
so if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
no walls up break it down (break it down down)
ignorance stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
then happiness spread it all around (break it down down)

tcha who said funk and hip hop cant match
put us together on a stage and like a match
KABOOM guess who stepped in the room
sweepin ya off ya feet like we had a broom
with ani difranco and macy o.
add a little freestyle flow and who knows
put a little scratchin into the mix and
its enough to get you high if you need a fixin

if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
no walls up break it down (break it down down)
ignorance stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
no walls up break it down (break it down down)
happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
racism stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
break it down down down down (fades out)
This song is from the album "To The Teeth".
