lyrics

i don’t need to do anything to please you
since you’re not here
all the work I’d had to do before now
has just disappeared

and I don’t know why I’m crying
now that I have all this free time
why can’t I think of something better than of you?

why you don’t know the meaning of the word “no”
is beyond me
you go about making messes of your friendships
and when you make a new friend,
you get them to clean

all of your friends are players in the plot of your life,
who if you cannot face you’ll simply have replaced
the critics disappear, loud humming’s all you hear,
why must you block me out?
what do you have to fear?

that as a friend, you are not faithful,
and how you brag is just disgraceful
think you should go cause I don’t need you,
and cause it costs too much to feed you?

i thought you’d help me grow, share the things you know,
but you never showed me much
i was eager then, thought that we were friends,
and it seems that you were touched
and if you were an idol housed in flesh and bone
i would have known from how you acted in my home

you always took my warmth for granted
you didn’t tend the seeds you’d planted
when we were young, you never noticed
but now you’re old enough to know this
now you are old enough to know this:

that as a friend, you are not faithful
and how you brag is just distasteful
think you should go cause I don’t need you
and cause it costs too much to feed you.
