Your clean-living, clear-eyed
Clever, level-headed brother says
He`ll put all the screws
Upon your newest lover
Buddha`s in the fireplace
The truth`s in drugs from Outer Space
Maybe it`s right to be nervous now

Who are these madmen!
What do they want from me!
With all of their straight-talk from their misery

Everything`d be just fine
If I had the right pastime
I`d`ve been Raskolnikov
