Song Lyrics


All of that thick time without you

Has made me so thick and drunk

"and it`s okay to laugh about it"

I said, "it`s okay to laugh about it"

Running twice as fast to stay in the same place

Don`t catch my breath to the end of the day

And I`d rather be shot in the face

Than hear what you`re going to say

One day the wind will come up

And you`ll come up empty again

And who`ll be laughing then?

You`ll come up empty again

There`s no reason, no explanation, so play the violin

It`s always funny until someone gets hurt...

And then it`s just hilarious!

You beat me every time you blink

If only I did not have to think

Think about you crackin` a smile

Think about you all the while

One day the wind will come up

And you`ll come up empty again

And who`ll be laughing then?

You`ll come up empty again

There`s no reason, no explanation, so play the violin

On the ricochet - it`s gonna hit you

It`s always funny until someone gets hurt

You can laugh at me - when it misses you

It`s always funny until someone gets hurt

And then it`s just hilarious!
