Faith No More Midlife Crisis Lyrics

Last updated: 04/01/2014 05:59:46 AM

Verse 1:
Go on and wring my neck
Like when a rag gets wet
A little discipline
For my pet genius
My head is like lettuce
Go on dig your thumbs in
I cannot stop giving in
I'm thirty-something

Bridge:
Sense of security
Like pockets jingling
Midlife crisis
Suck ingenuity
Down through the family tree

Hook:
You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you (you're only you)
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleeding enough for two

It's a midlife crisis.. It's a midlife crisis..

Verse 2:
What an inheritance
The salt and the kleenex
Morbid self attention
Bending my pinky back
A little discipline
A donor by habit
A little discipline
Rent an opinion

Bridge 2:
Sense of security
Holding blunt instrument
Midlife Crisis
I'm a perfectionist
And perfect is a skinned knee


Hook:
You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you (you're only you)
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleeding enough for two

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


It's a midlife crisis...
It's a midlife crisis...

Hook:
You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you (you're only you)
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleeding enough for two
(repeat and fade)

J'ADORE Faith No More!!! | Reviewer: Sara | 4/1/14

Loki Mischief | 2/7/13 - sorry but the lyrics you refer to are actually in Land of Sunshine not Midlife Crisis.

Faith No More have been the soundtrack to my life since I was 17 and I'm now 40. I feel so privileged that they have yet again announced a new date - Hyde Park, London 4 July 2014 - and that 23 years after I first heard them on a "Now that's what I call music" cassette tape (!!!) I can see them live all over again. I have seen them live numerous times over the years and have never EVER been disappointed by any of their shows! :D

missing subtext in the song | Reviewer: Loki Mischief | 2/7/13


between verse 1 and 3, theres a filler which says as if announced

"Does emotional music have quite an effect on you"
Do you feel sometimes like it's against you
I, I can help, I can help you, help yourself
mouahahahahahahah

Great memories about this song | Reviewer: subsonikk | 8/20/09

This was a new song when I was 18, and now 17 years later having just turned 35 a few days ago...it hits me harder and has become my anthem of sorts. "Midlife Crisis" was on one of the first 4 CDs I ever bought, so the whole album was awesome for me. I've been re-discovering my love for Faith No More this past week. Awesome 90s band, they're having a reunion tour so catch 'em if you get the chance.

Loan Payday | Reviewer: Kali | 2/13/09

Good morning. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.
I am from Kiribati and learning to write in English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "I have a qeustion, how long are you drawing? Ow to draw? More like just speed drawing, but still nice pic."

Best regards :-D, Kali.

it rocks! | Reviewer: nomad4ever.com | 8/18/08

I heard that song first in a strip song in San Diego back in 92 or 93. It was simply awesome!

So now, whenever I hear it again.... it remind me of those rounds cheeks moving in front of me.....uahhhh!

man its too good! | Reviewer: Dushyant | 5/29/08

The first hard rock song I ever liked is Midlife Crisis. Lyrics bring out the very true feelings of midlife, although I'm still far from mine. :-) Excellent lyrics, excellent guitar, excellent voice. Overall an Excellent composition. =C

UR PERFECT, YES ITS TRUE | Reviewer: juan_o_450@hotmail.com | 2/7/08

FAROUT

Amazing | Reviewer: Kyo666 | 2/4/08

I absolutely adore this song, just as about everything else Mike Patton does! Whenever he's involved in a project, you just know it can't be bad. My favourite band of his still is and always will be Mr. Bungle, and I'll never give up hoping for a revival. Though I always feel like I'm the only girl listening to this sort of stuff ;p

Made A Epic Change Of Rock In The 90's | Reviewer: Grizzly696 | 1/24/08

its a addictive song, i love it FNM are one of my most fav bands of the 90's and i hope i am still listing to all the classics when i do actually hit "mid life crisis"

I love it!!!

F_CK yes | Reviewer: jacob | 12/13/07

This song has been in my head for the past two days. I heard it first way way way way back when I was 12? I'm 28 now. Fuck yeah. FNM was and will always be amazing. So 90's.

whoa | Reviewer: ash | 9/14/07

such a great song, its so catchy and i dont normally listen to this type of rock but fnm are an awesome band, and Peeping Tom also great. midlife crisisssss i had to get the lyrics cuz i had no clue what he was saying.. :P

Fantastic | Reviewer: dollar | 8/5/07

This is actually the best song I have ever heard in my life, though it is so complicated but also it is still the king of all songs in the world

not bad | Reviewer: chris | 7/8/07

this is not a bad song. although not set out like any run-of-the-mill songs (e.g. 1st verse, chorus, 2nd verse, chorus, end) but that's why i really like it. someone asked me who my fav. band is, i answered Metallica, Motörhead and Faith No More. :-)

Almost as good as rush | Reviewer: cameron | 6/22/07

when anyone asks me about wut kinda music i like i give them 3 words... faith no more

This song is good | Reviewer: Jason | 6/21/07

You should also check out something he did before FNM. He was the lead for Mr. Bungle. You want something out there, check that out. I also saw his protege's when i went to see Tool, Meshuggah.
