20 Dollar Nose Bleed Lyrics

Have you ever wanted to disappear
And join a monastery
Go out and preach on Manic Street?
Who will I be when I wake up next to a stranger
On a passenger plane?
(Passenger plane)

Oh,

Permanent jet lag
Please take me back (please take be back)
Please take be back
(Oh) I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in (please let me in)
The mad keys tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings

Give me a pen
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in
I wanna blow off steam and
Call me Mr. Benzedrine (Mr. Benzedrine)
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

It feels like fourteen karats but no clarity
When I look at the man who would be king
The man who would be king goes to the
Desert to sing war his dad rehearsed
Came back with flags on coffins and said
We won, oh, we won

Permanent jet lag
Please take me back (please take be back)
Please take be back
(Oh) I'm a stray dog sick
Please let me in (please let me in)
The mad keys tripping
Singing vows before we exchange smoke rings

Give me a pen
Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in
I wanna blow off steam and
Call me Mr. Benzedrine (Mr. Benzedrine)
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

Benzedrine
My, my, my Benzedrine
My Benzedrine now
My Benzedrine now

Only one more thing and that is the rest of the proof
Is on the television, on the

Call me Mr. Benzedrine
But don't let the doctor in
I wanna blow off steam and
Call me Mr. Benzedrine (Mr. Benzedrine)
But don't let the doctor, don't let the doctor in

Have you ever wanted to disappear?

It's not me, it's you
Actually, it's the taxidermy of you and me
Untie the balloons from around my neck and ground me
I'm just a racehorse on the track
Send me back to the glue factory
Always thought I'd float away
And never come back
But I've got enough miles on my card
To fly the boys home on my own
But you know me: I like being all alone
And keeping you all alone
And the charts are boring
And the kids are snoring
And the eagles in a sling
You say you're not listening
And I said I'm wishing
And I said, I said

2 Thoughts & Meanings

I think that the song may be about someone that may have been lost by the singer. The person that has left may have been in a position that affected the singer's life. The singer wants to be let back into the subject of the song's life, and is infuriated that they have not yet been let in. They wonder what would happen if they contacted the person being sung about again, and can't decide whether they should or not. They want to explain things, and don't want an anonymous person merely known as "the doctor" to interfere. They pretend to enjoy being alone, and am trying to persuade the subject of the song that they do. They also wonder if the person being sung about wants to escape the life that they live and disappear, whether that be death, running away, or leaving a partner.

The constant haze that surrounds all of FOB's lyrical epics, the razor-sharp puns, the intelligent wording and all the game that comes along with it, all the ingredients are all present, in one nice,solid example that no matter what is on FOB's mind, them being in love,them being broke, them being on a antisocial day, they will deliver in a possitive vibe always.
