lyrics

I figured out your riddle too soon. Far too soon for a confrontation.
Cued the cassette to “Andy’s Chest”; Lou Reed’s voice, making me braindead.

Braindead, in your bed…what you said was in the ear and out the other.
No, I won’t do another…because I can’t find another.

I figured it out, I figured out your riddle.
I figured it out. I figured out your riddle.
Now I’m stuck in the middle of myself again.
It’s what I gotta do to be…

You gave me precise directions
how to sacrifice myself and everyone else.
Your secret exaggerations;
your silent treatment broke my eardrums.
Hercules in your bed--a jealous dream (in one end and out the other)
No, I won’t do another; my mind’s a jealous army, and no one is spared.

I figured it out, figured out your riddle I figured it out, I figured out your riddle.
Now I’m stuck in the middle of myself again. It’s what I gotta do to be
“Saved”.

(I figured it out) I guess I gotta be
Saved (I figured it out) I guess I gotta be
Saved (I figured it out) I guess I gotta be
Safe and sane or safely insane.

The wickedest thought is always appeased
By the biggest lie guaranteed to please
Used past the expiration date
Hearing your voice makes me braindead

Braindead in your bed
I thought I was past what would be your future
A yoyo, you walked the dog
Threw me a bone and watched me roll over.
