Scrambled Eggs


Just don't forget to remember my name.                                                  Or do, or don't, it's all the same.
Just don't forget who went or came.
Or do, or don't, it's all the same. 
The bat outa hell came back for more.
But Satan hurried to lock the door.
I died last night, in the morning, at four.
But heaven hurried to lock the door.
My girl and I, we always fight.
She wakes me up in the middle of the night.
Sometimes I donít know if what I do is right.
It wakes me up in the middle of the night.
Who did, who didn't, who hasn't, whose had.
Hungry Africans make me sad.
My sister's friend lost his dad.
A lack of a role model can turn good kids bad.
Diddly, daddly, doodly, di.
Why's everybody always pickin' on me?
My bed's not made, hope my mom doesn't see.
Why's everybody always pickin' on me?
I hate math homework, but I've gotta do it.
I can say I forgot it, but he'll see right through it.
I hate math homework, but I gotta do it.
Iím dumb, Iím dumb, Iím dumb, ah screw it.
Scrambled eggs, all scrambled up.
Blank face stares back at me from my cup.
Scrambled eggs, all scrambled up.
Fry my brains, louder, shut up.
This is your brain, this is it on drugs.
The red haired gorilla will crush us like bugs.
This is her brain, he is her drug.
Sweet gorilla kisses crush me like a bug.
Are you perfect, or am I just dumb?
I just mopped the floor, so donít drop a crumb.
Are you perfect, or am I just dumb?
When did I leave and when did he come?
Scrambled eggs, all scrambled up.
Blank face stares back at me from my cup.
You slap my face, but I donít give up.
You move your elbow and spill my cup.
Fingers limber, hands of stone.
Screaming wires, pick up the phone.
My heart is achin, damage prone.
When mouths shut tight, and chances blown.
Lonesome is my only friend,
I feel like nothings around the bend.
All I want is a hand to hold,
this tired feelingís growing old.
Wish I could see past this bind,
whatís in front leave whatís behind.
I smile with friends, you canít see through,
the front thatís on when I smile at you.
My smiles wipe away, but donít bring the pain,
that comes along with your careless games.
My head can turn, but my heart canít feign,
the hurt inside drivin me insane.
On and off, it's all you do.
Your love is strange, itís false then true.
On and off, it's all you do.
Get over yourself, so i can get over you.
So tired, so sick, so through with this.
But the farther i walk, the more i want your kiss.
So tired, so sick, so through with this.
But why let go of something you're gonna miss?
I know she's wrong, I know I'm right.
We don't want trouble but we gotta fight.
She knows I'm wrong, she knows she's right.
We're trapped in a tunnel ending with no light.
Dad says just let go.. she won't matter come ten years.
I know he's right but it won't kill my fears.
My friends say let go.. she ain't worth my tears.
I tell my heart to let go but it wont adhere.
I'm out.. can't take this hurt no more.
Love's not meant to be a chore.
I'm out.. can't take this hurt no more.
Gotta pick my heart up off the floor.
Scrambled eggs, all scrambled up.
I cut my finger on my broken cup.
Scrambled eggs all scrambled up.
Donít look back when things look up.
