Breathe Me

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there's no one else to blame




Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me
 



Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe
 



Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me
 



Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me...

Sing Along with the Common People


 Are you sure you want to live like common people?
You want to see whatever common people see?
You want to sleep with common people?
You want to sleep with common people, like me?


 But she didn't understand,
She just smiled and held my hand.


 Rent a flat above a shop,
Cut your hair and get a job.
Smoke some fags and play some pool,
Pretend you never went to school.


 But still you'll never get it right,
'cause when you're laying in bed at night,
Watching roaches climb the wall,
If you call your Dad he could stop it all.


 You'll never live like common people,
You'll never do whatever common people do,
You'll never fail like common people,



You'll never watch your life slide out of view,
And dance and drink and screw,
Because there's nothing else to do.


 Sing along with the common people,
Sing along and it might just get you through,
Laugh along with the common people,


Laugh along even though they're laughing at you,
And the stupid things that you do,
Because you think that poor is cool.


They'll tear your insides out
'cause everybody hates a tourist
Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh.


You will never understand,
How it feels to live your life,
With no meaning or control,
And with nowhere left to go...

Ophelia


Ophelia was a bride of god
A novice Carmelite
In sister cells, the cloister bells
Tolled on her wedding night






Ophelia was the rebel girl
A blue stocking suffragette
Who remedied society
Between her cigarettes




And Ophelia was the sweetheart
To a nation over night
Curvaceous thighs
Vivacious eyes
Love was at first sight...
Love was at first sight…
Love…





Ophelia was a demigoddess
In prewar Babylon
So statuesque a silhouette
In black satin evening gowns





Ophelia was the mistress to a
Vegas gambling man
Signora Ophelia Maraschina
Mafia courtesan





Ophelia was the circus queen
The female cannonball
Projected through five flaming hoops
To wild and shocked applause...
To wild and shocked applause...





Ophelia was a tempest, cyclone
A goddamned hurricane
Your common sense
Your best defense
Lay wasted and in vain





For Ophelia'd know your every woe
And every pain you'd ever had
She'd sympathize
And dry your eyes
And help you to forget...
And help you to forget…
And help you to forget…




Ophelia's mind went wandering
You'd wonder where she'd gone
Through secret doors
Down corridors
She'd wander them alone
All alone...
