Wishing upon a mattress, falling off the axis
Slipping in stillness, flipping the pearl [unverified]
I walk you when you're wasted
I can almost taste it, all this oxygen's for your

But it's a couple more volts of shock treatment for you
When a couple more votes of confidence will do
I walk you when you are wasted
I can almost taste it

And it's a couple more volts of shock treatment for you
When a couple more votes of confidence will do

All is there to remind you, before and behind you
Follows you everywhere you go
Make me say you're crazy, it don't even phase me
'Cause you're the sanest one I know

Just a couple more breaths of oxygen will do
They may say you're crazy but she's so amazing

But it's couple volts of shock treatment for you
(A couple volts of shock treatment for you)
When a couple more votes of confidence will do
(Loneliness, loneliness again)

Just a couple more breaths of oxygen will do
But it's a couple more pills and a couple more pills
And a couple more, "What do you do those things you do?"
(Shock treatment for you)

Just a couple more volts of shock treatment for you
(Shock treatment for you)
Just a couple more breaths of oxygen will do
(Shock treatment for you)

Treatment, treatment for your
(Shock treatment for you)
That will do, that will do
That will do, that will do, that will do
