Before I…

You’d better give me something
So I don’t die
Novocaine for the soul
Before I sputter out
– ‘Novocaine for the Soul’, Eels

There they stand, just angels with dirty faces
The corporate wind to cleanse – somehow does not
Pass by their ultimately innocent faces, Before I…

Misconceive or misconstrue what it means to be you
Give me, give me something, just thread
Before I splutter out… Before I splutter out.

Stuck in queues and queues of queues
There is some misty essence of a quintessence
Still blinded by an ignorant sun

I go on before I splutter out – I need something
As The song reminds of what is known
So here I sit as asinine as the rest

Something must come – the lure is set
Give me something – before I die
Something, before I splutter out, before I…
