Jaya The Cat – The Sickness lyrics

Mary moved to the city in '97
Got a temp job downtown, studio apartment
Things were looking pretty good until she got outta shit
Stay out all night and keep it going
Backwards progress but you got new friends
Sleeping on a sofa when sleep happens and it's
It's alright 'cause everywhere you go
Everyone likes you and there's no one you don't know
And it's hard to see your slipping when you're blind
White light, you leave, your path behind you.
Mary Mary how long can you go on, believing your still in control and
Mary Mary how much can you go?
Mary Mary, Mary's got the sickness oh.

Few years later she gets a little older
Squatting in a room hoping nobody notices
All of her friends she ripped off or pissed off
Back from 'los Angeles' it's too late to stop
Paranoia, the world's an accusation
Anyone who's nice must be after something

Scabs on her face, mind's a blur
Got shit away for a future that's no longer hers.
Story changes to fit the moment
Aww girl it looks like you've blow it.

Mary mary didn't you know?
That shit your on just kills your soul and
Mary Mary how much can you go?
Mary Mary, Mary's got the sickness oh.

Started in a bathtub ended on a sidewalk
What started as a life just ended up fucked!
She says, 'One more rail to freedom'
But you wouldn't know the truth if you seen it

Mary Mary how long can you go on, believing your still in control and
Mary Mary how much can you go?
Mary Mary, Mary's got the sickness oh.
