wise up

February 12, 2007

it’s not
what you thought
when you first began it.
you got
what you want –
you can hardly stand it, though,
but now you know
it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop
’til you wise up.

you’re sure
there’s a cure,
and you have finally found it.
you think
one drink
will shrink you ’til you’re underground
and living down
but it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop
’til you wise up.

prepare a list of what you need
before you sign away the deed,
’cause it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop.
it’s not going to stop
’til you wise up.
no, it’s not going to stop
’til you wise up.
no, it’s not going to stop,
so just
give up.

(Aimee Mann)
