Vaccinated

Written February 2000

like the mumps or the chicken pox, you get it once and then you’re done,
and if you’ve had it bad enough, you’ll never get it back again,
I didn’t mean to fall like that, now I’m flatter than a welcome mat,
+++ but I wanted you so bad,
+++ you left me vaccinated,
+++ first I was so sad,
+++ then I recuperated,
+++ slowly your memory’s faded,
+++ but I can’t fall in love again..

at first it’s the biggest buzz, then you want it twice as much,
and later when the source dries up, there’s nothing to replace that rush,
I finally had to face the truth, traded heroin for chicken soup,
+++ but I wanted you so bad,
+++ you left me vaccinated,
+++ first I was so sad,
+++ then I recuperated,
+++ slowly your memory’s faded,
+++ but I can’t fall in love again,
+++ ‘cause you left me vaccinated,
+++ first I was so sad,
+++ now I’ve recuperated,
+++ slowly your memory’s faded,
+++ but I can’t fall in love,
+++ but I can’t fall in love,
+++ but I can’t fall in love again…
