CONCENTRATE

 

Sometimes I think I might be doing ok

Then instantly that feeling goes away 

Forgetten everything except my name 

I'm useless all the same 

I think I have the attention span 

the flight time of a boomerang 

The same duration as a minute man

It's useless all the same 

 

I wonder what I've got to 

To be on top of it like you

I don't want to be like this forever

So I'd better get my shit together 

I wonder do I still have time

To give myself a re-design 

Or maybe it's just too late 

Maybe I could train my brain to concentrate

 

About as fresh as yesterdays news 

About as comfortable as high heeled shoes 

About as colourful as faded tattoos 

It's useless all the same 

just as convenient as a late vallet 

about as lively as a dead bouquet 

about as legal as a stowaway

it's useless all the same 

 

I wonder what I've got to 

To be on top of it like you

I don't want to be like this forever

So I'd better get my shit together 

I wonder do I still have time

To give myself a re-design 

Or maybe it's just too late 

Maybe I could train my brain to concentrate

 

I've got no sense of direction 

Don't take care of my possessions 

leave a mess everywhere I go 

I think it's a good idea to just steer clear of me 

like you would with yellow snow

Leave everything to the last minute 

and it really puts me in it 

make a race to the finish line

And I don't pay enough attention 

So misapprehension (Miss Apprehension) 

She's a very close friend of mine

 

About as quiet as an instrument

About as distant as the intimate 

About as guilty as the innocent 

It's useless all the same 

 

I wonder what I've got to 

To be on top of it like you

I don't want to be like this forever

So I'd better get my shit together 

I wonder do I still have time

To give myself a re-design 

Or maybe it's just too late 

Maybe I could train my brain 

 

Or maybe it's just too late 

Maybe I could train my brain to concentrate
