TERRIBLE THOUGHT

a terrible thought has moved into my mind
like an unwanted room-mate drunk on wine
it feeds on my happiness won't pay the rent
I must take proper measures to evict it

a terrible thought has moved into my mind
a giant rat that's nibbling on my pride
it's tearing away my patience and my wit
I must take proper measures set a trap for it

what a terrible thought

I don't care what you've done
I don't care who you've won
I know in the end you'll have your fun

but you can't have it hear
and I won't let you steer
you know I don't want you in my mind

I must stay calm you know and I must be clear
it's gonna take a hundred thoughts to make this one disappear
a train like that could travel a soul for years
a terrible thought could have a terribly long career

what minds have you shredded
I bet they regretted
having ever thought you up
just look at you shine
commiting your crimes
you know I don't want you in my mind

cause you're breaking my stride
you poisonous vine
you're strangling me inside
you're breaking my stride
you poisonous vine
you're strangling me inside
you're breaking my stride

what a terrible thought...

Father: what is your greatest worry because you seem to
be worried all the time

daughter: sometimes I can't hear myself think

Father: (cutting her off) you have to speak a little louder,
I can't understand a word you're saying

daughter: sometimes I can't hear myself think
