The Clean – Thumbs Off lyrics

This little boy's like all the rest,
'Cause he knows just what's inside him.
He's never been put to the test,
'Cause he knows just where to find 'em.
All his life he's had it easy
Ya know, he's never had no problems.
The house he lived in was so shitty
But she still kept them coming.

And who's gonna pay the bills today?
And who's gonna turn the girls away?
And who's gonna make you feel okay?
And who's gonna take the pills today?

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.

He said to his mother one day
"You know, mum, I'll really make a difference."
She said "Son, you'll have to go, you know it's costin' too much to keep ya."
The day was wet as he walked down the road
Ya know his head was full of sorrow.
Little did he know he'd never see his own home again.

And who's gonna pay the bills today?
And who's gonna turn the girls away?
And who's gonna make you feel okay?
And who's gonna take the pills today?

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.

He said to his friends "c'mon let's go, I'll take you to the shoulder"
He said "No, no, look here my friend, you make me feel much older."
They left him alone sitting on the road.
You know, his head was full of marbles.
Little did he know he would never see the ones he knew so well.

And who's gonna pay the bills today?
And who's gonna turn the girls away?
And who's gonna make you feel okay?
And who's gonna take the pills today?

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

And, sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.
