Poe Terrible thought Lyrics

Last updated:

Father: EVERYTHING HAS TO FALL APART.

Daughter: WHY ARE YOU SO SERIOUS?!
[These two lines are actually on this track, not #3.]

A terrible thought has moved into my mind
Like an unwanted room-mate drunk on wine
It feeds on my happiness, won't pay the rent
I must take proper measures to evict it

A terrible thought has moved into my mind
A giant rat that's nibbling on my pride
It's tearing away my patience and my wit
I must take proper measures, set a trap for it

What a terrible thought

I don't care what you've done
I don't care who you've won
I know in the end you'll have your fun

But you CANNOT ADHERE
And I won't let you steer
You know I don't want you in my mind
WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT
WHAT A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THOUGHT

I must stay calm you know and I must be clear
It's gonna take a hundred thoughts to make this one
disappear
A train like that CAN travel a soul for years
A terrible thought could have a terribly long career
WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT

What minds have you shredded?
I bet they regretted
Having ever thought you up
Just look at you shine
Commiting your crimes
I know I don't want you in my mind
[Not "You"]

'Cause you're breaking my stride
You poisonous vine
You're strangling me inside
You're breaking my stride
You poisonous vine
You're strangling me inside
You're breaking my stride

What a terrible thought
WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT
WHAT A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THOUGHT
WHAT A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THOUGHT
WHAT A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THOUGHT
[Fading] WHAT A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THOUGHT

[Very soft] WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT
[Very soft] WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT
[Very soft] WHAT A TERRIBLE THOUGHT
[There's a very soft sample over these last three lines that I can't make out.]

Jazzman: JUST BACK UP BOYS, STICK IT MAN.

Father :
What is your greatest worry because you seem to be
worried all the time.

Daughter:
Sometimes I can't hear myself...

Father:
YYou have to speak a little louder,
I can't understand a word you're saying.

Daughter :
Sometimes I can't hear myself think.
