"Ammonia (full version)"

[Instrumental]

[Intro]
Bob's at work
Kathy's at school
I'm home alone
Stare at the pool

Eyes start to glaze
I'm off caffeine
To beat malaise
I think I'll clean


[Verse 1]
Dust the pictures on the wall
Get up close inspect the faces
That does not look like me at all
Oh my goodness, Kathy's braces!

I remember taking this in '92
I'm all aglow because
Bob is giving me a kiss
That's how I know how long ago it was


[Verse 2]
Leave the pictures in the hall
Scrub a stain, head to the foyer
Ignore the black mark on the wall
Caused by my daughter the destroyer

All the things that child broke
Those precious moments that we had
I know she did it to provoke
'Cause she's exactly like her dad


[Verse 3]
I take a breath, I suffocate
My house dress hurts, My hands go pink
I try to breathe I feel the weight
Head toward the kitchen for the sink

The cabinet underneath
I grab the bottle, fingers shake
To pop the top I use my teeth
My heart beats fast I pulse I quake


I pour the liquid in the bucket
I breathe it in I taste it suck it
In my lungs it feels like, woah
In my lungs it starts real slow

And then grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow, grow, grow


[Chorus]
Ohh, ohh
Ammonia how you take the stain away
Ammonia how you take the pain away
Oh ammonia

Ohh, ohh
Suddenly I'm laughing and I'm flying
Nothing's wrong and I'm no longer crying
Oh ammonia


*inhale*

Ohh..

*inhale*

Yeahh..

*inhale*

Whoo!


Uh, uh, uh, uh
Get a little bit comfortable now
Off comes the dress, unhook my bra
Rip a curtain off a window, yeah!
That mailman likes what he just saw

I breathe in, I breathe in, I breathe in
I don't have a kid, don't have a spouse
I breathe in, I breathe in, I breathe in
Aw sh*t! I love to clean the house!


[Verse 4]
I tear the pictures off the wall
Plastic smiles, hidden tears
Soon as each one starts to fall
The memory in it disappears

And I travel back in time
To happy days, to seventeen
Before I chose which hill to climb
Back when the slate was clean, clean, clean!


[Verse 5]
I breathe it in the feeling grows
Squeeze a sponge, my hand gets wetter
It's almost like the liquid knows
That it's making me feel better

I love it more than I love Bob
If I could marry it I would
It drives you wild it does the job
Does what that as*h*le never could


Oh baby make me feel so good!


[Chorus]
Ohh, ohh
Ammonia how you take the stain away
Ammonia how you take the pain away
Oh ammonia

Ohh, ohh
Suddenly I'm gasping and convulsing
I scream, I squeal I feel my body pulsing
Oh ammonia

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]
My daughter used to love me
She doesn't anymore
I wish that she could see me right now
Naked on the floor

I'd make her look me in the eyes
And give her this advice
Every time you make a compromise
It comes at quite a price

It sneaks up on you in the dark
And it always leaves a mark


[Chorus]
And oh, no
Ammonia cannot take that stain away
It doesn't really take the pain away
Oh ammonia

Ohh, ohh
It isn't really genuine elation
Just temporary sweet alleviation
Oh ammonia


[Chorus]
Ohh, ohh
I breathe it in as hard as I can muster
Suddenly I start to see the luster
Oh ammonia

Ohh, ohh
There it is I'm screaming and I'm flying
Nothing's wrong and I'm no longer dying
Oh ammonia


Ohh, ohh
La la la la la la la la laa laa
La la la la la la la la laa laa
Oh ammonia

[Instrumental]

[Outro]
Bob just got home
Kathy too
"My day was fine
And how are you?"

Put back the bottle
But I feel no sorrow
'Cause oh ammonia
I'll see you tomorrow
