Story

I wrote this after doing a phone interview for a newspaper about my music. I was spaced out on Benadryl during a systemic case of full-on poison Ivy. or Oak. I never saw the leaves- I was pulling up roots from the garden.

Lyrics

It was late in the evening I was tired I was ill I was feeling really groggy From taking too much Benadryl So you called and we talked for 5 hours And I don't remember a thing Except before I hung up the phone I do remember saying I have to kill you now You know more than I can allow Unless you can forget somehow I have to kill you now I could speculate on what I might have said Was it how I flunked the seventh grade How my high school friends called me Smurfette Did I rattle on about my cat And talk about my allergies And I wonder did I blab about my stay in drug rehab I have to kill you now You know more than I can allow I could extradite you to Moscow Or I could kill you now The way most people see me I’m hardly ever serious Fun loving easy going And a tad mysterious You with your tape recorder You with your Smith-Corona One published article Could peel away my whole persona I have to kill you now You know more than I can allow I will let you choose how But I have to kill you now So you wonder did I kill him And is all the other stuff true I cannot reveal those things ‘cause then I’d have to kill you too I have to kill you now You know more than I can allow You've lived a good life anyhow I have to kill you now
