She calls me a Van Gogh-Getter
Despite my terrible first impression
Apparently, when she said ‘lend me your ears’
It was only a suggestion
She wrings her hands
Like the bell before an execution
Her wedding band
Forces us to face the music

I get vertigo
From every climb, axe in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack
I get vertigo
From every climax in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack

Millions of white lies
Slip by my black and rotten teeth
And fall on every angry ear that’s
Deaf-deaf-definitely
Unimpressed
With how hungoverwhelmed I’ve been
She puts me on a pedestal
When I’m drunk on power and pukin’

I get vertigo
From every climb, axe in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack
I get vertigo
From every climax in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack

My thoughts are pounding
Like a poorly played piano
I think I may have had
Too much to drink
By ‘think’ I mean ‘know’
And by ‘drink’ it’s no one’s business but my own
Which narcotics invaded or even
Neighbor my nose

I get vertigo
From every climb, axe in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack
I get vertigo
From every climax in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack

I get vertigo
From every climb, axe in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack
I get vertigo
From every climax in hand
I’m a hack yeah I’m a hack
