The metal jangles as the key turns
Unlock the door, wipe my feet clean
Oh my head sounds like that

The oil is spitting in the saucepan
I squeeze the sponge and let the cat out
Oh my head sounds like that
Oh my head
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

The water's dripping in the hallway
The guy next door, he knocks his wall down
Oh my head sounds like that

The knife it scrapes across the burnt brown toast
The freight train rumbles past my window
Oh my head sounds like that
Oh my head
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Around the axis we all spin
To determine what's left out and what's left in
What's left out and what's left in
What's left out and what's left in
Who's left out and who's left in
Who's left in

The moments come and go like water
I try to hold them but they're fading
Oh my head sounds like that
Oh my head
Oh oh oh
