Seeing as this song has been stuck in my head for the past three days I'll post the lyrics :]
I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly. I'm crying.
Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come. Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday. Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long. I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob.
Mister City Policeman sitting Pretty little policemen in a row. See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run. I'm crying, I'm crying. I'm crying, I'm crying.
Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye. Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess, Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down. I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob.
Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun. If the sun don't come, you get a tan From standing in the English rain. I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob.
Expert textpert choking smokers, Don't you thing the joker laughs at you? See how they smile like pigs in a sty, See how they snied. I'm crying.
Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower. Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna. Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe. I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob. Goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob g'goo... (etc.
What's the furthest place from here? It hasn't been my day for a couple years. What's a couple more? And if I go, don't forget the one good thing I almost did. I learned your name without words. I used my eyes, not my hands. What's the closest you can come to an almost total wreck and still walk away, All limbs intact? And when I go, you'll be there crying out, begging me. I won't hear. I'll just go fast into this night on broken legs. A near miss or a close call? I keep a room at the hospital. I scratch my accidents into the wall. I couldn't wait to breathe your breath. I cut in line, I bled to death. I got to you, there was nothing left. What's the meanest you can be to the one you claim to love And still smile to your new found friends? In the same confusing breath, You pull away and draw me in. I wanted you. You wanted more. I built this life and now it's mine.
This song has several of my favorite lines in it. So i'm posting the entire thing
I was walking with your left hand in my back pocket And I stared at the sky while you kissed me And you were running away, away from everything And I stayed behind so you'd miss me And all these words would sound so sweet I could care less about you Care less about you And I love the sound of you walking away And I can see clearer and I'm getting closer To finding out to just who I am without you in the way So hold me But only for today Despite my best ambitions I get into the worst situations But here I am crystal clean And all my nights are lonely The words I say to you are phony Cause there's nothing left to say I know you say you can't live without me And every single night you think about me I could care less about you Care less about you And how I love the sound of you walking away And I can See clearer And I am getting closer To finding out just who I am Without you in the way So hold me But only for today
