Couldn't You Wait?

This song is by Silkworm and appears on the album Libertine (1994).

Couldn't you wait
For some time to elapse
Check it before the trap was set
And it collapsed like a
Big net grass green rug screen wait
Did you test the water with a big toe dip
Don't put all your trust in that triple-timing bitch
Could you elaborate
On how you tempt fate
Couldn't you wait

Couldn't you wait
To go on your foggy trips
You were in the corner doing back flips
I saw sweat on the wheelchair grips slip
Couldn't you wait
You never cooked up your medicine then
Said the aspirin made your thick blood thin
Every dinner was a capricorn a crown of thorns
Couldn't you wait

Yeah couldn't you wait
You were funny to a fault
Went too heavy on the salt
Can you stand up straight
While I illuminate a few of your flaws
I thought you said you would never get your teeth capped
How would you like to get your face slapped
Did it hurt to take the time to make the new girl happy as a clam
In a pair of tight 501s
Is your fresh-faced neighbor any fun at all
Do you still go off
Like a gun that's gotten stuck on stun
That's permanently stalled

Do you still think you're god
Is your first day on the job even over yet
Is the summertime in heaven grand
Is it fifty-nine past the eleven hand
Oh couldn't you wait
For the midnight train at least
All these seagulls are insane beasts
The taste of trouble's in my mouth
It's like a candy cane
Couldn't you wait
Until the thought had passed
That our love would never last
How could you devastate
Someone you claim not to hate
And couldn't you have waited
Couldn't you have waited
Couldn't you have waited
Couldn't you wait
