Till My Head Falls Off

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Factory Showroom (1996) and on the live album Severe Tire Damage (1998).

There were eighty-seven Advil in the bottle, now there's thirty left
I ate forty-seven so what happened to other ten?
Why do you suspiciously change the subject and break my concentration
As I dump the bottle out and I count the Advil up again?

Don't interrupt me as I struggle to complete this thought
Have some respect for someone more forgetful than yourself

And I'm not done and I won't be till my head falls off

Feeling every pocket on my shirt that's an over coat
I'm feeling them again but I don't know where I put my notes
Clearing my throat and gripping the lectern
I smile and face my audience clearing his throat and smiling
With it's hand on the bathroom sink

And when I lean my head against the frosted shower stall
I see stuff through the glass that I don't recognize at all

And I'm not done and I won't be till my head falls off
Though it may not be a long way off

I'm not done talking yet
I'm not done talking yet

And when I lean my head against the frosted shower stall
I see a broken figure silhouetted on the wall

And I'm not done and I won't be till my head falls off
Though it may not be a long way off
I won't be done until my head falls off
