Point of it all

Text písně Point of it all

Oh, what a noble, distinguished collection 
of fine little friends you have made 
Hitting the tables without you again, 
"No we'll wait, no we promise we'll wait." 
Well, June makes these excellent sewing machines 
out of common industrial waste 
She spends a few months at a time on the couch 
but she's safe, she wears shades, she wears shades 


Oh, but no one can stare at the wall as good as you, 
my baby doll, 
And you're aces for coming along, 
you're almost human, after all 
And you're learning that just because they call themselves friends 
doesn't mean they'll call 
They made the comment in jest, 
"But you've got the needle, 
I guess that's the point of it all." 


Maybe a week in the tropics would help 
to remind you how nice life can be 
We propped you right up in a chair on a deck 
with a beautiful view of the sea 
But a couple weeks later we came back 
and you and the chair were nowhere to be seen 
You had magically moved to the closet 
eyes fixed to where the child had been 


Oh, but no one can stare at the wall as good as you, 
my baby doll, 
And you're aces for coming along, 
you're almost human, after all 
Why would I keep you propped here 
when you so love the fall 
Patterns laid out on the bed 
with dozens of colors of thread 
But you've got the needle, 
I guess that's the point in the end. 


Well, it's better to waste a day 
watching the scenery change at a comatose rate 
Than to put yourself in it 
and turn into one of those cigarette ads that you hate 
But while you were sleeping, some men came around 
said they had some dimensions to take 
I'm not sure what they were talking about 
but they sure made a mess of your face 


But still no one can stare at the wall as good as you, 
my baby doll, 
And you're aces for playing along, 
you're almost human, even now 
And just 'cause they call themselves experts, 
it doesn't mean "suite fuck all" 
They've got the permanent press 
and homes with a stable address 
And they've got excitement 
and life by the fistful 
But you've got the needle 
I guess that's the point of it all.
