Lyrics
Yesterday I spent an hour
A full hour in therapy
My favourite Doctor Landau
My God I hate his breath

He asked me questions
That kind of fool deserves a lie
I gave him answers
The kind of answers Doctor like
Yes, I gave him a bunch of lies

I told him all My nightmares
Were dead and gone
"These days I sleep like a baby
And there never ever was a "THEM"

He asked me questions
That kind of fool deserves a lie
I gave him answers
The kind of answers Doctors like

The Doctor looked at My eyes
Landau: "No trace of insanity
Maybe the time is right now
To have a visit from the family
I'm thinking of Your Mother
What does My little patient say?"

I should have taken his stethoscope
And then forced it down his throat
My Mother was at stake
So I behaved

That night I cleaned the entire house
For everything but the memories
No dust, no tea, ah stupid me
I even took the axe away
The sun is up and it's time for bed
I'm so tired
I can't wait no more
