eggs lyrics – we were evergreen

if i had a tail to chase around
i would go for days and days
i would never cease to run amok
until i got stuck in phrase

if i found a finger in a can
i would drink it anyway
sprout a hundred nails and twenty hands
scratch it off and fly away

it’s such a waste
it’s such a waste
it’s such a waste and i can’t make up for this

stammer oh i stumble through the words
tethering about my mind
if i could find a way
out of the woods
right into that frying pan

crack your eyes open in a stew
make it sweeter than a pill
pour a little sugar in the wound
mix it all up once again

it’s such a waste
it’s such a waste
it’s such a waste and i can’t make up for this

it’s such a waste, oh
it’s such a waste, oh
it’s such a waste and i can’t make up for this

and i can’t make up for this

and i can’t make up for this
