My Last Nerve

My Last Nerve - Paco del Stinko

I used to be strong and virile, once I was healthy and fit
Now I'm as nervous as a squirrel, my health has gone to shit

Well in case you haven't heeard I'm down to my last nerve
And I'm sure I know it by name
I'm frazzled and torn and feeling forlorn
And if I lose my nerve it's you I'm gonna blame

The drink and drugs have taken their toll
I'm crashing hard in a downhill roll


I boozed and pilled to escape, at first it was a big help
Now I see that it's too late, I don't even know my own self

I've sizzled and fried, felt like I've nearly died
I'm shaking like leaves in the wind
I'm no angel, and you're no saint
Hell yeah, both of us have sinned


My soul is tattered and torn, my nervous system destroyed
If neither of us had been born, well I guess we'd not be annoyed
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

My Last Nerve- Part 1
glennny

A cold piercing breeze
Sneaks through the broken screen
The window won’t close
And now a fly has come on in
I’m losing concentration
over minor irritations
I can’t fall asleep
And nothing’s in the right place

I’ve never had claustrophobia
But these walls are closing in

Do you know what I mean?
Time is slipping as i freeze
The neighbors are so loud
But I’m crippled with embarrassment
This senseless sensibility
Is bringing out the worst in me
My wounds begin to itch
I can’t satiate the need to pick

I’ve never had claustrophobia
But these walls are closing in

Maybe I get what i deserve
Things are turning from bad to worse
It’s coming at me so I try to swerve
That goddamn fly’s on my last nerve

There’s only one beer
In a fridge that keeps things barely cold
The bottle is green
To magnify the skunking light
All the things I mentioned
Are an obvious conspiracy
I think that i am stuck
In this room with no exit

The window is still ajar
But not enough for my escape
Maybe I get what i deserve
Things are turning from bad to worse
It’s coming at me so I try to swerve
That goddamn fly’s on my last nerve


My Last Nerve - Part 2
glennny2

I just killed a living thing
To try to have peace
It was brutally whip smacked
By a women's magazine

The feeling is fading away
Numbness is taking hold
My last nerve had something to say
But the signal has gone cold

Alone without solitude
I’m crowded by ghosts
they’ve sprung up from memories
Their presence is close

The apparitions start to take form
Right here in front of me
Do I have the nerve to deny
this emerging insanity?

I recognize my grandmother
She’s got a bone to pick with me
Her son is my father
And now i’m the one who’s neglecting

Communing with the dead
Is giving me the creeps
The fear is exhausting
My last nerve runs deep

The feeling is concentrated
The axon knows the way
My last nerve goes to the bottom of my heart
The aching won’t stop today
If i ever escape this room
I'll try and set things straight
My last nerve keeps me nervous
The more that I contemplate


My Last Nerve- Part 3
glennny3

I’m presented with an opportunity
A portal opens up
And it’s beckoning

Shed this mortal coil

I can’t feel anymore so I risk..
I risk catastrophe
I’m using all the nerve I have left to
Step through and see

I become are in another state of being
Everything is so bright
And I’m feeling everything

I embrace a brand new face

I can’t think very well, I’m overwhelmed
By this new dichotomy
My last nerve is no longer alone
It’s just one, one of many

I’m perplexed by my new identity
I have flight and freedom
But serious ADD
I have the sense
I gotta go through the hole in the fence

I can’t believe what I see, is that me!?!
Did I discorporate?
I looked into his eyes full of ire
It’s me! That irritates

This room is a prison cell, I can’t tell
How to evacuate
I know I’m on my last nerve
That magazine’s a pearly gate

I just can’t get out of my head
It’s not your fault I woke up on the wrong side of the bed

Maybe I should get some sleep
A cup of coffee might give me just the jolt I need
A little time to get away
A holiday where I’m the only one in the cafe

I’m on my last nerve
Don’t disturb me or you’ll get my worst
I’m on my last nerve
Don’t disturb me without checking with me first

I know you need affection
I can see your reflection
Your look is pure dejection

Solo over bridge x2

Please don’t bother me today
I feel unsettled by the world

I’m on my last nerve
Don’t disturb me without checking with me first
