lyrics

I could make some tea
Or maybe I should fly to Belgium
But I'm tired
And have no spare money to spend

Pretend to be sick
Well it seems I've used up the option
Monday waits for me
With its big burden of boredom

And the lousy talking
And the coffee machine

People who know what they do
Whe belive in what they do
They are scarier than death for me
For me...

Chorus:
As the crack drew wider
Walls have grown closer
And the air thinner
I can't stand these thousand faces in the tube
I can't help
I'm wild and sorry
But there's nothing one can do for me

Could paint my walls in blue
Or maybe I should have a baby
But I just hate them
And I can't cope with neediness

They say « Go help the poor »
But one can be as bored as selfish
But I keep growing old
It won't stop
It won't stop

Summer waits for me
With its big burden of boredom

And the silent waiting
And the dull chain-smoking

People who know where they go
Who the hell know where they go
None of them mean anything to me
To me...

Chorus:
As the crack drew wider
Walls have grown closer
And the air thinner
Radio keeps repeating the same old crap
I can't help
I'm wild and sorry
But there's nothing one can do for me
