Continental Drift Submit Correct Lyrics

Here's the story of a dying man
Told by a friend of mine.
He said that he heard it from a friend of his
Who was a real close friend one time.
One night he chose to choke his wife
Until the light that was there turned cold.
He'd heard some stories 'bout her
From a friend of a friend I'm told.

The continental drift. The continental drift.

Why do you say "no"
When what you mean is "yes"?
Why do you say "never mind"
When it's obvious that you dooooooo?
Yeah, I love you too.
When it's obvious that you dooooooo.
Yeah, I love you too.

Let's hang around and watch
This good man lose his goodness
And leave a trail of misery behind.
I heard he chose to choke his life until the light in it went cold.
I heard it from a friend of a very good friend of mine.

The continental drift. The continental drift.
The continental drift. The continental drift.
