Sit down by the window and watch the tornado 
Wait for the sheriff to bring some dirty water by
Help yourself out to some of my disaster 
Its movin' faster 

Than the last time I was on speed 
Don't you know what I mean
 Cause it's ways and means and your ways are mean
By definition 
I could fill this page up with this boys ambition 
But I don't audition 
Oh yes that's true
I could never act for you

 Heard you saw some friends of mine last winter 
Then again, I heard you disappeared into ether 
I don't laugh and you smile because I'm tired 
I'm feelin wired oh so weary 
And oh so old
Am I being too bold
Bold enough to ask you if you really love me

In my shadows and in my dreams 
And just one last thing  Please let me say
And that is please,
Oh please, please stay away, from me
