Karen, I’m not taking sides
I don’t think I’ll ever do that again
I’ll end up winning and I won’t know why
I’m really trying to shine here, I’m really trying
You’re changing clothes and closing windows on me all the time

Well, whatever you do, listen, you better wait for me
No, I wouldn’t go out alone into America
Whatever you do
Listen, you better wait for me
No, I wouldn’t go out alone

Karen, we should call your father, maybe it’s just a phase
He’ll know the trick to get a wayward soul to change his ways
It’s a common fetish for a doting man
to ballerina on the coffee table cock in hand

Well, whatever you do
Listen, you better wait for me
No, I wouldn’t go out alone into America
Whatever you do
Listen, you better wait for me
No, I wouldn’t go out alone

Without warm water in my head
All I see is black and white and red
I feel mechanical and thin
Hear me play my violin again
I’m living in the target’s shoes
All I see is black and white and blue.
Idle, idle, idle, idle, protect the nest
Protect the title

Karen, put me in a chair, f_ck me and make me a drink
I’ve lost direction, and I’m past my peak
I’m telling you this isn’t me
No, this isn’t me
Karen, believe me, you just haven’t seen my good side yet

I must be me, I’m in my head
Black birds are circling my bed
I must be me, I must be me
Black feathers are falling on my feet
Idle, idle, idle, idle, protect the nest
Protect the title.

All night I lay on my pillow and pray
For my boss to stop me in the hallway
Lay my head on his shoulder and say
Son, I’ve been hearing good things

I wake up without warning and go flying around the house
In my sauvignon fierce, freaking out
Take a forty-five minute shower and kiss the mirror
And say, look at me
Baby, we’ll be fine
All we gotta do is be brave and be kind

I put on an argyle sweater and put on a smile
I don’t know how to do this
I’m so sorry for everything

Baby, come over, I need entertaining
I had a stilted, pretending day
Lay me down and say something pretty
Lay me back down where I wanted to stay
Just say something perfect, something I can steal
Say, look at me
Baby, we’ll be fine
All we’ve gotta do is be brave and be kind

I pull off your jeans, and you spill jack and coke in my collar
I melt like a witch and scream
I’m so sorry for everything.

Hey, where the hell are you?
You don’t call me back, John
Won’t you come here and stay with me?
Why don’t you come here and stay with me?

Hey, where the hell are you?
You don’t call me back, John
Won’t you come here and stay with me?
Why don’t you come here and stay with me?

Show up here loaded with bells on your toes
I don’t care what you’re into
I’ll put velvet ropes around you
If that’s what you need

Why did you listen to that man?
That man’s a balloon
Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me
John, you gotta get out and get back to me

Why did you listen to that man?
That man’s a balloon
Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me
Take his limousine, you gotta get back to me

I’m getting nervous
No sign of a friend of mine
Red hair and blue eyes
I’m getting nervous
No sign of a friend of mine

I was in a train under a river when I remembered what
What I wanted to tell you, man, what I wanted to tell you, man
I got two sets of headphones, I miss you like hell
Won’t you come here and stay with me, why don’t you come here and stay with me?

I’m getting nervous
No sign of a friend of mine
Red hair and blue eyes
I’m getting nervous
No sign of a friend of mine

Why did you listen to that man, that man’s a balloon
Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me
Why did you listen to that man, that man’s a balloon
John, you gotta get it out and get back to me

Why did you listen to that man, that man’s a balloon
Fake a heart attack, you gotta get back to me
Why did you listen to that man, that man’s a balloon
John, you gotta get out and get back to me.
