Daniel Johnston - Peek A Boo lyrics

When I'm down, really down Nothing matters, nothing matters I close my eyes, go to sleep But I can't sleep, I can't sleep Please hear my cry for help, and save me from myself Junior high I lost my mind I don't know why, it's a terrible thing Since that day it's been a struggle Trying to make sense out of scrambled eggs Please hear my cry for help, and save me from myself I painted a bar and I never got paid In a town where everyone was on foot I was locked in on Easter day All I had to eat was a piece of bread When I got home my mother said "You're a lazy bum and that's how come You suffer like that and you'll starve All your life. All your life." Spoken just like it was a curse But it didn't really sound so bad I like to make things up It's the healthiest thing that I do But I'm tired From being kidnapped By a dark wolf that would Do me in Please hear my cry for help, and save me from myself I'm just saying how I feel Maybe you could try to understand I'm a man who needs you When I'm down, really down Nothing matters, nothing does I close my eyes to go to sleep But I can't sleep, I can't sleep You can listen to these songs Have a good time and walk away But for me it's not that easy I have to live these songs forever Please hear my cry for help, and save me from myself
