You never asked for the dose
Somehow it lodged in your throat
Oh, your eyes are crossed
Your mind is lost
How did we get in this mess?
I'd say we failed at some test
We were making some progress pushing forward from the front end
You know that most of your friends are gonna ask you just what happened
Why you cried, you cried
That's what you cried, you cried
You think you can just go to school, get a job, go to work, and not be tempted to blow it all to hell?
And when your life is suddenly in smithereens, you might not find yourself stategizing how to get it back off the ground
You might be laying facedown in the dirt!
And in that situation, would you want your friends to say good night and good riddance?
Or would you want someone to stand by your side and hole your hair?
I'll be there to hold your hair
Because that's what friends do, friends care
And I'd expect you to do the same thing for me, alright?
