Needle In The Hay lyrics

Your hand on his arm
The haystack charm
Around your neck

Strung out and thin
Calling some friend
Trying to cash some check

He's acting dumb
That's what you've come
To expect

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

He's wearing your clothes
Head down to toes
A reaction to you

You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue

Sometimes they just
Get caught in the eye
You're pulling him through

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Now on the bus
Nearly touching
This dirty retreat

Falling out
6th and Powell
A dead sweat in my teeth

Going to walk, walk, walk
Four more blocks
Plus the one in my brain

Down downstairs
To the man
He's going to make it all ok

I can't beat myself
I can't beat myself
And I don't want to talk

I'm taking the cure
So I can be quiet
Whenever I want

So leave me alone
You ought to be proud
That I'm getting good marks

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
