lyrics

I’ve been between a rock and a hard place
But now I’ve chiseled my way out
From beneath all the wailing voices
I put in my backpack and carry around

Now I’m an unrestricted free agent
In the land of a thousand balconies
With a stack of coupons for free fresh starts
Only valid when it’s the last thing you need

I’m in a haunted supermarket
Where shelves conspire against my name
In a haunted supermarket
With a check-out line that stretches to the grave

So what could I do but abandon it all
For a satanist mother of two
With a big bed in which to sleep away Wednesdays
And a cupboard full of chocolate buns

And so I’m sorry that I ran
You were better than I deserved
In truth I was a petty little man
With the whole world left to learn

Now I’m in a haunted supermarket
Where items randomly appear in your cart
There’s a thousand different newspapers
And only one greeting card

If you get bored in Oklahoma
You can go to Tulsa for the weekend
But I’m in a haunted supermarket
Where the aisles never reach any end

All of the reverse vending machines
Who knows whatever lurks behind
If I find out I’m going to send you a card
That says “Get well soon”: it’s all I could find

Did I mention I was sorry
You know I will always be your slave
But I’m stuck in a haunted supermarket
With a check-out line that stretches to the grave
