    Lyrics

    are you weary as water
    in a faucet left dripping
    with an incessant sadness
    like a sad record skipping
    and an ugly and ornery
    and shadowy dread
    lurking like a troll under the bridge
    between your heart and your head

    she came to and her
    whole life was how she remembered it
    she had a mouth full of fur
    and she was laughing
    she parked her hearse across
    three spaces posted "motorcycles only"
    and jumped out shouting
    what the cus could make a nice girl like us
    feel so lonely?

    are you weary as water
    in a faucet left dripping
    with an incessant sadness
    like a sad record skipping
    and an ugly and ornery
    and shadowy dread
    lurking like a troll under the bridge
    between your heart and your head

    please dumb blind kind sir
    lend little miss listless just a little bit of christmas
    she's been a real good girl
    but now she's stuck here
    the world is so little and still
    mysterious and ominious as ever before
    like an unmarked bottle full of pills
    on the shelf right next to the thing
    you were reaching for

    are you weary as water
    in a faucet left dripping
    with an incessant sadness
    like a sad record skipping
    and an ugly and ornery
    and shadowy dread
    lurking like a troll under the bridge
    between your heart and your head

    swing the groove 'round here
    where i can reach it
    when i get my ass back on track
    i'm gonna need it
    swing shift til i get the money
    to buy me and my baby a moon full of honey
    then i'm gonna turn the nagging voices
    inside my head
    that follw me to bed and fill my head with (you suck)

    are you weary as water (what'd you do that for?)
    in a faucet left dripping
    with an incessant sadness
    like a sad record skipping
    and an ugly and ornery
    and shadowy dread
    lurking like a troll under the bridge
    between your heart and your head
    (end of radio version rest is only on To the Teeth)
    if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
    no walls up break it down (break it down down)
    happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
    racism stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
    so if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
    no walls up break it down (break it down down)
    ignorance stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
    then happiness spread it all around (break it down down)

    tcha who said funk and hip hop cant match
    put us together on a stage and like a match
    KABOOM guess who stepped in the room
    sweepin ya off ya feet like we had a broom
    with ani difranco and macy o.
    add a little freestyle flow and who knows
    put a little scratchin into the mix and
    its enough to get you high if you need a fixin

    if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
    no walls up break it down (break it down down)
    ignorance stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
    happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
    if you diggin on the sound (break it down down)
    no walls up break it down (break it down down)
    happiness spread it all around (break it down down)
    racism stomp it in the ground (break it down down)
    break it down down down down (fades out)
