Your clean-living, clear-eyed
He`ll put all the screws
Buddha`s in the fireplace
Maybe it`s right to be nervous now
Who are these madmen!
With all of their straight-talk from their misery
Everything`d be just fine
I`d`ve been Raskolnikov
In Philadelphia
Maybe it`s right to be nervous now
I had liberty of movement
I`m so lazy

You`re not so big at that
Now you`re being looked at
Where have I seen you before!
I`ve got a good face for memories`
I`m sure that I felt healthier
