All of a sudden
Anaphylactic and super hypocondriactic
And i feel like i'm dying.
Couldn't sleep at night
Filled with weet bix and kerosene and
He's probably wondering what i'm doing getting in an ambulance
I feel like Uma Thurman
I feel pro active
I much prefer the mundane.
I pull out weeds
I take a hit from
I think she's clever cos she stops people dying
I was never good at smoking bongs.
I'd rather die than owe the hospital
It's a monday
It's so mundane
My knees are weak
Oh no, next thing i know
Oh what a waste.
Oh what a wonder
On my own two feet
Post overdosing kick start
Reminds me of the time
Should've stayed in bed today
So i do some gardening
Straight to the heart
Sunflowers, bean sprouts, sweet corn and radishes.
The yard is full of hard rubbish it's a mess and
They call up triple o
Till I get old
What exciting things
Will happen today?
