in the words of one who knows her stuff...

"AAAAAAAARGH!"

i've been feeling
dull as a coat hanger
pretty as a picture of a patient on a fresh IV
giddy as a gangbanger
with a set of sutures where his magic johnson ought to be
yes i'll tell you just the thing
you need to be the next big thing
let's start in with a
test of your intelligence and
zest for the counter-productive
up and down and roundabout
and out the back
and keep your mouth shut tight
the lights are staying out but
no sweat i've got aim like a mack truck!
guess how many fingers
ok
guess how many more i can fit there
guess right
get the toaster!

but you know, miss
guessing gets you nowhere
I'VE BEEN BAKING CAKES FOR THE ENEMY
I'VE BEEN DYING TO FIND OUT THE HARD WAY
I'VE BEEN TAKING FRIENDS TO THE ALLEYWAY
TWO DOWN NOW
but who's counting anyway...
yes i can do everything you need
from out of my new SUV
all my work is guaranteed
to last the length of your recovery

put away those pliers
honey
trust me cause i know the options
how about a nine-month long vacation
and a two-foot coffin
I'VE BEEN GETTING UP CLOSE AND INTIMATE
SOME CLOSE CALLS BUT I'M GETTING INTO IT
IN SOME STATES THEY SAY YOU CAN BURN FOR IT
BUT I'LL BURN THAT BRIDGE WHEN I GET TO IT!!!

it's not a bad thing
to get professional
it's got a nice ring
MANDY GOES TO "MED SCHOOL"
I'VE BEEN TAKING TIPS FROM THE GOVERNMENT
I'VE BEEN GETTING DAMN GOOD AT HIDING IT!
fifty bucks a month ought to cover it
two down now but WHO'S GONNA NOTICE IT?!
and if you show up and i am unavailable
my partner brian would love to take care of you

he is a nice man
thoroughly reliable
he's in a rock band
...and he goes to "med school"...

the dresden dolls, "mandy goes to med school"

dreaming about a heart-attack denotes loss of love for somebody. i can't tell if i really feel that different about you or i just really get the sense that you don't care about me in the least.

if anybody should ask i'm going to a seminar
pieces of the moon

sensitive heart, you're doomed from the start
(& etc)

anybody can be just like me, obviously.
not too many can be like you, fortunately.
