The Lyrics

Shame, shame, shame! What a shame!
Shame, shame, shame! Shame of fools!
All these years, I thought I had a plan!
But I found out I'm just a sink with a drain.
It had me like some de-bris.
It was numbin', what a tool.
They heated the scene - ohh- my conceit said cool.
Shame, shame, shame!
Shame of fools!

All those pains have got me, I think.
Though I am meek, child, I have my own strength.
I thought I had left it and grown.
Why bother and go it alone?
My stomach get feelin' queasy.
Too much of that stuff went on too long.
I'm addled in my brain, brain, brain.
Brain, brain, brain!
Shame, shame, shame!
Shame of fools!

With what I'm warning, I'm sane, ain't gonna break,
And I will use Zen, babe, I'm gonna ache all I can ache.
Shame, shame, shame! Shame, shame, shame!
Shame, shame, shame! Shame of fools!
Shame, shame, shame! Shame, shame, shame!
Shame, shame, shame! Shame of fools!

Is this a private story, or can you explain the meaning?
