Lyrics

   Woke up this morning desperation a.m.
   What I've been saying won't say them again
   My head's not empty, it's full with my brain
   The thoughts I'm thinking
   Like piss down a drain

   And I feel like a beetle on it's back
   And there's no way for me to get up
   Love'll get you like a case of anthrax
   And that's something I don't want to catch

   Ought to control what I do to my mind
   Nothing in there but sunshades for the blind
   Only yesterday I said to myself
   The things I'm doing are not good
   For my health

   "Love crops up quite a lot as something to sing about,
   Cos most groups make most of their songs about falling in love
   Or how happy they are to be in love,
   You occasionally wonder why these groups do sing about it all the time -
   It's because these groups think there's something very special about it
   Either that or else it's because everybody else sings about it and always has,
   You know to burst into song you have to be inspired
   And nothing inspires quite like love.

   These groups and singers think that they appeal to everyone
   By singing about love because apparently everyone has or can love
   Or so they would have you believe anyway
   But these groups seem to go along with what, the belief
   That love is deep in everyone's personality.
   I don't think we're saying there's anything wrong with love,
   We just don't think that what goes on between two people
   Should be shrouded with mystery."

   Love'll get you like a case of anthrax
   And that's something I don't want to catch
   Love'll get you like a case of anthrax
   And that's something I don't want to catch
