lyrics

Why do I always get stuck with crazy housemates?
I don't get it, am I a crazy housemate magnet?
They seem so normal at the beginning it seems great
But the next minute they are talking to the TV cabinet

I used to think I was a good judge of character
But now I realise that my perceptions may be blurred
Maybe the world is trying to teach me with some kind of karma
Or maybe deep down I'm just addicted to the drama

I can't handle one more person trying to finger paint on the carpet on their knees
I can't handle one more person knocking on my door crying cos they found their keys
No I won't hide your valium
No I don't have no weed
No I won't listen to your little tantrum
No I don't have no speed

Why do I always attract the crazy housemates?
All I ask is that my home is a relaxed space
I'm not responsible for organising rehab
Or cleaning up the mess from incidents that you've had
I think it's probable that you should be on medication
The fact that you are not is making me very impatient
I wanna be able to sit and relax in the loungeroom
Instead of sitting hiding writing little songs about you

I can't handle one more person stealing all of my clothes and pretending that they bought them
I can't handle one more conversation about kinky sexual practices like places you've inserted things
No I won't count your calories
No I won't buy your food
No I won't try your herbal remedies
No I won't dump your boyfriend for you

I'm sick of having all these fucking crazy housemates
I'm telling you that I would trade them with you any day
I wanna get home and be greeted with a smile
And not be greeted by someone who's suicidal

Hiding in my bedroom used to be the only escape
But it's getting really smelly in here
And there's a build up of tea cups that need to be cleared away
Can't you see, can't you understand why I'm feeling this wa
I guess it's hard to think of other people
Through your drunken haze

Why do I always get stuck with crazy housemates?
I don't get it, am I a crazy housemate magnet?
They seem so normal at the beginning it seems great
But the next minute they are talking to the TV cabinet
Having a conversation with the TV cabinet yeah
Thats All.
