Crack My Head And Let The People Out

about

The idea for this song came from a conversation with a drunk friend over skype. He was talking about how his head was full of little people. He wanted to get them out. Yup.

lyrics

I got a guy named Jimmy
lives behind my right eye
starts yellin’ high water
every time I start to cry
yeah, I can’t get nothing done
when old jimmy starts to wail
trippin’ on time starts a bangin on my mind
just a settin’ up myself to fail

crack my head and let the people out
crack my head and let the people out
crack my head and let the people out
oh yeah, let ‘em out of me

then there’s Christine
Hangs out in my top teeth
sits all day counting
makin’ sure it’s the same beneath
No, I just can’t stop clickin’
enamel starts to melt
pain is reignin’ high brings the water to my eye
and a Jimmy he starts to yell

Chorus


I can’t take it all in stride
they all keep slippin’ on my pride
finally makin’ sense to me
take it all one floor down pretty baby,
cause it won’t go to the top for me!

Chorus

Then there’s this other guy
he lives in my left ear
always tell me where to go
and sometimes what to fear
when he gets to talking
about the fire and the brimstone
I tell him Billy go back to sleep
there ain’t no way that you could ever know!
