Never Fall In Love

I got 36-foot insulation in my house
Wear 14 pairs of long underwear
Stick tape inside my ears
Cover myself with five bedspreads

I spend every morning in an isolation tank
Spend every afternoon high up in a tree
Spend every evening with one of those things over my eyes
Like in virtual reality

I’ll never fall in love again

I got a walkman on my head every step I take
Put thorazine in my morning coffee break
Won’t feed the birds bread boys, let them eat cake
I’ll lock my doors, click click click bang bang
When I’m not awake

When I’m walking down the street
Don’t make me meet your sister, Pete,
When there’s a knock knockin at my door
I’ll just sit here on the floor

I’ll run 26 miles a day straight up hills
Work overtime to pay all of my hospital bills
I’ll spray black spray paint on my windowsills
I’ll make a million dollars leave you outta my will

I’ll never fall in love again
