Original video
Laura calls me
In the middle of the night
Passes on her
Fateful information

Then these careless fingers
They get caught in her vise
Till they're bleeding
On my coffee table

Living alone isn't all that
It's cracked up to be
Oh, oh, oh
I'm on her side
Why does she push the poison on me?
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Has a very hard time
All her life has
Been one long disaster

Then she tells me
She suddenly believes she's seen a very good sign
She'll be taking
Some aggressive action

I fight her wars
While she's slamming her doors in my face
Oh, oh, oh

Failure to break
Was the only mistake that she made
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Here I am
Feeling like a fucking fool
Do I react the way exactly
She intends me to?

Everytime I think I'm off the hook
She makes me lose my cool
I'm her machine
And she can punch all the keys
She can push any button I was programmed through

Laura calls me
When she needs a good fix (ah)
All her questions
Will get sympathetic answers

I should be so immunized
To all of her tricks (ah)
She's surviving
On her second chances

Sometimes I feel like this
Godfather deal is all wrong
Oh, oh, oh
How can she hold an umbilical chord
For so long?
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I've done everything I can
What else am I supposed to do
I'm her machine
And she can punch all the keys
She can push any button I was programmed through

Laura loves me
Even if I don't care
That's my problem
That's her sacred absolution

If she had to
She would put herself in my chair
Even though I
Faced electrocution

She always says
I'm the best friend that she's ever had
Oh, oh, oh
How do you hang up on someone
Who needs you that bad?
Oh, oh, oh, oh
