Under The Microscope Leftovers

Jump To Current Lyrics > Next: Constantly Travelling Leftovers (2001)

 

There isn’t too much to say about these lyrics.

 

I Will is something from this era that was either finished after Under The Microscope or just didn’t make the cut, I can’t remember. Leeroy The Fly was actually a part of the original grouping though (check it out in the Fireteddy National Library.) Given it’s goofy nature in retrospect, I replaced it with Crack when revisiting the lyrics sometime in 2003.

 

As with everything here on the main site, I’ve polished these up over the years. Even so, I think they’re two of my more memorable leftovers from the early days.

I Will

 

You might not be the only one

But I miss you all the same

Nothing here is quite as fun

When there’s no one else to blame

You’ll always be this dirty

And you’ll always have the night

But when your conscience drags you down again

Make sure you’re holding tight

 

And I know you’re free this evening

But my interest now is weening

Although it’s only been a week

 

My interest peaks and now you’re gone

But in the way it’s been too long

I’ll still excuse your gross abuse

‘Cause it’s all I’ve got, it’s all I’ve got

 

You might not be my patron saint

Though I miss you as a crutch

It isn’t really all that fun

When there’s nothing left to touch

And you’ll always be this stupid

But you’ll always be so great

When your angel brings you down again

I can tell you’ll deviate

 

And I know you’re free this morning

So I’ve tried to heed the warnings

Although it’s only been a month

 

My interest leaves and now you’re gone

For every day it felt so wrong

I’ll still excuse your gross abuse

When it’s all I’ve got, it’s all I’ve got

 

But life moves on without you here

As stranger tides replace these tears

Now I’ll refuse your gross abuse

Yeah I think I will, I think I will

I think I will, I think I will

Leeroy The Fly

 

Flew in from outside

Was that a window?

No place left to hide

I thought that you’d know

 

I see everything

I see everything

 

I’ve got wings to fly

Just try and take me

Quicker than your eye

You’ll never break me

 

I see everything

I see everything

 

I will be your special pet

Although I’m not quite house trained yet

Now I can be your little boy

They call me Leeroy

They call me Leeroy the fly
