When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

- "I Still Can't Say Goodbye," Performer: Chet Atkins

Give 'em no hope

No tenderness

No holiness

No sensitivity

No love

No heart

No imagination

No compassion.

No talking, just head

I cannot be dead

I will be in your head

You will be on your knees

You'll be beggin' me, "Please...

Make it stop!"

No peace of mind

No serenity

No mercy mild

No divinity

You will give them no quarter

No inspiration

Isolation.

No talking, just head

That's what I said

I will be in your head

And you'll be down on your knees

Beggin' me, "Please..."

Sometimes I feel...Sometimes I feel like a motherless child...

Grease it up good

Work it back and forth

You don't even know who I am!

Think of the good things

Remember the bad

No illusions.

No talking, just head

I cannot be dead!

When you pull the switch

I will be in your head

Greasin' it up good.

No talking, just head

You've been misled

I will be in your head

Workin' it back and forth

Like I knew that I would.

Give 'em no tenderness

No compassion

No sensitivity

No love

No holiness

No spirituality

No imagination

No heart

No divinity

No charity

No mercy

No hope

No karma

No devotion

No immortality

No soul

No talking, just head

I cannot be dead!

I will be in your head

You'll be down on your knees

And you'll be beggin' me, "Please...

Make it stop!"

- "No Talking, Just Head," The Heads, Album: No Talking, Just Head, 1996
