JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

What A Shame

from Strawman

Take a knife and stab it in your foot
now there's a reason to be unhappy
now there's a reason to be blue
Take a pill, take a lot, take the orange ones
they made you sick last time,
I know you knew

And it just might take the rest of your life
to get over what you're doing to yourself today
Today you have something to complain about
as if you didn't before, what a shame.

Take a break, get some space, take the phone off the hook
pretty soon you feel abandoned and now you feel unloved
Take your time, miss the train, I'm sure there's someone you can blame thaton, maybe me.

And it just might take the rest or your life
to get over what you're doing to yourself today
Today you have something to complain about,
as if you didn't before, what a shame.

And everybody wishes you'd just get over it
and it's not that easy, and of course it is
Maybe it's just that we feel helpless to make you change at all

Take a trip, take a friend
take some polaroids, take a look
Isn't there a reason to be happy?

And it just might take the rest of my life
to get over what you're doing to yourself today
Today you have something to complain about,
as if you didn't before, what a shame.
