about

Remastered. Satire is still dead.

lyrics

Now and then, I start to bend
Broken bones need time to mend
On the kitchen floor, I lay again
I talk to myself
In my room, I sit and stare
I don't know what to do in there
The anchor said, "It's fair, folks tend to get hurt."

"So go ahead and settle down
Drink until you figure out
Why you always turn around and fall down in the dirt"

Lines connect the different dots
Points of interest on a box
If you squint, you'll start to see
Different patterns on the screen

I know exactly where I am
I know exactly where I stand

Don't swim around in kerosene
And light a match so you can see
To write inside your diary
When we talk on the phone

(jazz scatting)

Look, and then you'll see a trend:
Healthy bones resist the bend
Friends attempt to make amends
You sit all alone

If you want to hear the truth
Throw your TV off the roof
Contestants will run out of time
To get across the finish line

I know exactly where I am
I know exactly where I stand
