    You own this


Totem in a teabag, promise on your lips,
You push your luck and of course it trips,
Brush back your hair straighten your skirt,
Hobble down the street pretend it don't hurt
Fees gone up esteems gone down
You painted your face now you feel like a clown
Try to pass it off as one of those days
The ships on fire and the chaplin prays
Don't you feel like weepin'?
Something pure starts to weaken
Don't worry baby it's not your fault
Everything eventually comes to a halt
You got your lazy friends, hostile pets
And a gracious ex to pay your debts
So you let him think he's still got a chance
Ask his brother to teach you to dance
Out all night with a cousin named Max
Drinkin' red wine on the railroad tracks
Don't you feel like weepin'?
Something pure starts to weaken
Eventually one thing leads to another
And by the time you get a call from his brother
You're in a hospital bed after a hell of a night
They've taken off your legs and your feelin uptight
You tell him "Blow off and screw his brother too"
Slam the phone, call the nurse when you're through
And in the next bed graced with charm
Is a single guy who ain't got arms


from Granny Smith, released March 1, 2001
