lyrics

It was just one of those things
Just one of those crazy things
It was just one of those things
Just one of those desperate things

And I like your hair better than no hair
And I like your face better than none
And i like your arms better than no arms
Though prosthetic limbs are not without their charms

And I like your teeth better than no teeth
And I like your lips better than none
And i like your voice better than no voice
Though silence is golden and I don´t much care for your word choice

Methadone friend
Before i met you
Every bone in my body was sad
Now only my lips are blue

It was just one of those shit-faced things

And I like your neck better than no neck
And I like your lazy-eye better than none
And I like your hangnails that bleed when you walk
And I like your blood as it pools in my socks

And I like your hands better than no hands
And i like your elbows much better than none
And I like your skin better than no skin
Though sometimes I like to imagine you just as a skeleton

Methadone friend
Before i met you
Every bone in my body was sad
Now only my lips are blue

I fumble and hiss
I mumble and kiss everything that can walk
I stumble and piss where I eat and I shit

And I like your hair better than no hair
And I like your face better than none
And I like your teeth better than no teeth
´Cause nothing else hurts when you sink them down into me

Methadone friend, methadone friend
It was just one of those things
It was just one of those methadone things
