"Drowning"

In case anyone's curious about "Drowning in the Mainstream Flow," here's its origin. Make of it what you will:

Bleed by the Negro Problem

I don't bleed you
I just need to see you
I would love to turn your vice
and make a silly error twice

She isn't dreamy
she just needs to see me
drowning in the mainstream flow
and frowning where ever I go

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
So come down little one
leave your place in the sun

I come in bleeding
stumbling round and needing
I love to burn your trash
and make a picture with the ash

I come in storming
before your cloud starts forming
I would love to cut your hair
and leave an empty promise there

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
So come down little one
leave your place in the sun

Start your engine
but don't forget to mention
to your friend that I need work
don't reminded her I'm a jerk

Enter clowning
and join me while I'm downing
drink tickets and poison herbs
courtesy of the suburbs

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
