Guilty Cocker Spaniels Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I took off runnin' at the greatest speed
I didn't bother lookin' to either side of me
Well, I didn't see, I just didn't see
What was really goin' on

The truth had stopped and the skyline rose
Exchangin' comfort for more fashionable clothes
I'd left the hills at this point in time
To run on treadmills in a perfect line

Salad days add up to daily shit
Sparked imagination till the sparks just quit
And if this is fun, why am I so bored with it?
Well, I'll probably never know

Guilty cocker spaniels eatin' table scraps
Well, we rolled over, how our masters clapped
It felt so good, we wanted more than that
But when the program failed they defensively laughed

Sayin', "We did things just how you asked
Don't try takin' us to task
You didn't bite a face, no just a mask
So happy Halloween"

I drew a blank, we put it in a frame
Wait, what, you're winning?
You didn't say this was a game
Well, I guess I'll just have to play and play
Until I'm out of cash

Before I could spit it out
I guess the words had burnt my mouth
What can I say?
There's the thought I laid it down
So you could take it out of context either way

We said all along we deserve every bit
And mostly we knew that the supply would quit
But we got goin' and goin' just away with it
Until everybody lost their mind

Directly behind me and ahead of the time
But don't you worry, it'll fall right in line
Yep, everythin' just might fly by
No one's gettin' blamed this time

Blame me, so blameless
Can we find a way to blame our way out?
Well, I postdated the eulogy
For every blameless body, nah nah

We are blamelessly teethin'
On much more than we need, nah nah nah
Blamelessly teethin'

Well, we're all gettin' blamed
While everyone, everyone knew
Well, everybody, everybody knew
Well, everybody, everybody knew
Well, everybody, everybody knew
Well, everybody, everybody knew everything
