tangerine lyrics – 3 minute hero

sometimes she slips into a comma
nothin? there but the whites of her eyes
sometimes she tries to brush her teeth
she? s busy chasing invisible flies
well, she? s a waste of a perfectly good day
and i don? t wanna hear
about the little green men in her backyard
and all the sh*t you can fear
i don? t know where she goes
she? s staring into sp*ce

refrain:
i thought about it
and i don? t get it
how could she forget all she had
i knew her when she knew the simple truth
and i knew her when she was tangerine

somedays she wears her junior prom dress
heads straight for the grocery-store
buys a razor and a bottle of pills
then can? t remember what she got them for
well, she? s a waste of a perfectly good time
and i don? t wanna hear
about how being swallowed by the tv
or being pulled through a mirror
i don? t know where she goes
she? s staring at the stars

-refrain-

someone with something to say
she? d never throw it all away
i knew her when she was tangerine, tangerine
