Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta

Song Title: Flagpole Sitta
Artist: Harvey Danger
Album: Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?
Year: 1998

I had visions, I was in them
I was looking into the mirror,
To see a little bit clearer,
The rottenness and evil in me,
Fingertips have memories
Mine can’t forget the curves of your body,
And when i feel a bit naughty,
I run it up the flagpole and see,
Who salutes(But no one ever does)

I’m not sick but I’m not well,
and I’m so hot, cause I’m in hell!

Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding,
The cretins cloning and feeding,
And I don’t even own a TV
Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me,
You told them all i was crazy,
They cut off my legs now I’m an amputee,
(God damn you)

I’m not sick but I’m not well,
And I’m so hot, cause I’m in hell
I’m not sick but I’m not well
And it’s a sin to live so well

I wanna publish ‘zines,
And rage against machines,
I wanna pierce my tongue
It doesn’t hurt, it feels fine,
The trivial sublime,
I’d like to turn off time
And kill my mind,
You kill my mind,

Paranoia paranoia!
Everybody’s coming to get me,
Just say you never met me,
I’m runnin’ underground with the moles,
(Digging holes)
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to God it sounds like they’re snoring!
But if you’re bored then you’re boring,
The agony and the irony, they’re killing me

I’m not sick but I’m not well
and I’m so hot cause I’m in hell
I’m not sick but I’m not well
and it’s a sin to live this well

One, two, three, four!
(Guitar Solo)
