The Lyrics

Tell me, why'd I have to go and get myself decapitated?
Ho-ooh, yeah-eah-eah

I caught the bad end of a knife
But somehow I still have a life
What little life that I can have, at least, because, you see
My neck is where I had that slice
Seen this one before (ooh-ooh)
In cartoons galore (ooh-ooh)

But my life is hard, thought "decapitate"
Meant "no more life" after "blindin' pain"
You cut me, now my day is somethin' quite unreal (ah-ah-ah)
I can't eat steak without some pipes
Been forced to take the bus, that bites
I've been headless for a while (oh, for a while)
A while

Don't even try to say it's good (don't dare to try to say it's good)
To feel a breeze where no-one should
Just try to deal with tryna watch TV wedged between your knees (ah-ah-ah)
And drop yourself ev'ry time you shook
Head's harder to hold (ooh-ooh)
Than you have been told (ooh-ooh)

Please don't think too hard how I breathe, okay?
It's somethin' I must, for granted, take
While I co-ordinate with four limbs far from me (ah-ah-ah)
My sense of space is now a pile
Can't always face the way that's right
I've been headless for a while
Oh, somehow for a while

Longer than a week (longer than a week) (ooh-ooh)
Like, two or three (ooh-ooh)

That sounds short? Still far longer for my state
To still survive and out of a grave
Why can I still feel pain in parts so far from me (ah-ah-ah)?
I can't explain the "how"s and "why"s
Or how I'm stayin' like this, right
Somehow headless for a while (oh, for a while) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
For a while (a while, for a while, oh-oh-oh) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
For a while (oh, for a while) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
For a while

This really is a major inconvenience, oh man, I really hate it!
