an idiot’s end lyrics – daniel johnston

Loading...

i don’t have to say a thing
she knows exactly what i want
but anytime i feel like this
what we have goes out for lunch

she looks at me like a gun c-cked
and i’m afraid to turn my back
for fear of being loved
she leans forward for me to see

the lights of her majesty
she’s tempting me with a razor blade
but time is money at a penny arcade
and there’s monkeys in the shadows

and virgins afraid of being laid
the court jester holds up a light bulb and says
“all that is made is made to decay”

to know her is to love her
and i love her, but i don’t know her
to know her is to love her
and i love her, but i don’t know her

i feel for a place to sit
things always go on this way
i’m lost for a little bit
’til i come up with something to say

then i’ll go on and on
about rat skulls in her lawn
i’ll not specifically mention names her and i know
we’re just ashamed

she knows i’m here
and she readily rebukes her sister
she treats me with a sudden respect
suddenly she calls me mister

but just as soon, i soon forget
and start poking around in the trash
talking myself into outer sp-ce
and watching the reactions on her face

to know her is to love her
and i love her but i don’t know her
to know her is to love her
and i love her but i don’t know her

the picture of her sitting there
me and her on that chair
i can only say as much as i please
but not as much as i dare

where is the little girl who fell in love with me
the girl who fell in love with a sat-el-lite
that little girl’s moved out now
but the satellite still comes around
most every other night

i think my interest bleeds a heart
of a dead dog lying in her yard
i could catch her standing naked
i could catch her cold
i could catch her breath and bottle it

but i could never catch her off guard

now when i go there nowadays
it’s like visiting a sinking ship
and i’m a man overboard
and she won’t throw me a lifeline
symbolically represented by her lips

yes, to know her is to love her
and i love her but i don’t know her
to know her is to love her
and i love her, but i don’t know her
no no no no
