Chewing on a nerve you ask me
If the pain ever goes away,
And the world is enjoyed.
Chewing on a nerve, I ask you to stop.
The beat goes on when the heart is broken,
The song goes on but the record’s broken
Until we can’t go on anymore
No wonder I can’t get anywhere.
Walking in circles, my foot in my mouth.
Flush this one right down in history, wash it right out.
Let’s toast to our full glasses, let’s shake on shaky ground.
Eat the man-eater and let your insides out.
Sometimes you cry when you feel like laughing.
Sometimes you laugh too hard to cry.
Sometimes you feel nothing at all.
And it goes so long, once it finally hits you,
It hurts, I’ve never laughed so hard in my mouth
No wonder I can’t get anywhere,
Walking in circles, one foot in my mouth.
Flush this one down in history, watch it wash right out.
Let’s toast to our full glasses, let’s shake on shaking ground.
Eat the man-eater and watch how it all turns around.
I’m letting my insides out,
I’m letting my insides out.
