Lyrics by Andrew Krolikowski

You're always talking about the wars you won
About "The Needle and the Damage Done"
You're always riding off into the sun
All sorts of horses and guns
Still waiting on a call that never comes
From an old friend to come hit my drum
Waiting on an audience to sing along
Apparently they don't know this song.

I can dance like a marionette
Strung out with a cigarette
And a butterfly net
I guess that makes us friends.

I can dance like a married man
Strung up by my curly hairs
In a butterfly net
I guess that makes us friends.

I got a dead pan face and a dead man's grace
Oh, how I'd like to meet the me you see
Who keeps you up all night, worried for my life
It's strange how you make small talk to make sure I'm still alive.
