Here We Go Again

from ElectrophilE by The Atomic Atoms



People are always askin' they say "man who's Tom Foolin'"
I said he ain't no friend of mine
People are always askin' they say "man who's Tom Foolin'"
i said he ain't no friend of mine

but if you need a friend i suggest
you give him a try
cause he's just a man, but man
he'll be a friend 'til the day you die

Now, Tom Foolin' was the one what tried to recreate his own death
with a stack of prostitutes and a pack of cigarettes
he said "man, oh, it ain't about the way you go
it's just a question of if you're up to quest
any way the wind may blow"
and uhhh...
"fire" he'd tell ya
"fire is all ya need
to find out when you're dyin
what it was that made you breath"


Tom Foolin' was just a joker with a crazy eight
she had sphinx eyes and that was all
he'd ever need to keep him straight
and he'd say
"she's my baby"
"you know, uhh, she's my baby"
with her pistol smile was what let him know
he'd be hers for a while
but Tom Foolin' was a man of slaving senses
spent too much time in a bottle of wine
and the sacrosanct romances singing

"break me, take me, do with me what you need
the first to throw his stone will just be
the first to see me bleed."
And I ain't never been no one to tell no one how to live
but if your stones get too heavy

People always askin' they say "man who's Tom Foolin'"
i said he ain't the man before your face
but if he ever was... he left without a trace...
