Yes, Siobhan knows there is a Radiohead song with the same title.  She didn't know that until after she finished this song.  Ah, well.  Originality is dead in this world, anyways.  September 2003.

 

There, there

 

There, there goes another penny in your porcelain pig

There, there's another race you try to rig

I was your piggy bank.  I was saving up for you,

But that only works if you wanna save yourself, too

 

There, there

You aren't going no where

There, there

We aren't going no where

 

Where, where did your coins change shade?

Did ya think it's not fair, fair your pennies gotta age?

But copper always turns green, that's what aging begets

And so we sit there, aging too, racking up our debt

 

There, there

You arent going no where

There, there

We arent going no where

 

Love goes in cycles,

Once you start, you stay the same

But ain't it nice to know well never change

(Cause I ate your change)

 

There, there

 

Your pennies are pointless, they just keep adding up

And it takes so long to count out one buck

I've got these pennies for you thoughts, but I wish I didnt know 'em

Because with each clink in my belly, I hear every wish you've forgotten

 

There, there

We aren't going no where

There, there

We Aren't going no where

There, there

I was saving up for you

There, there

But you've got to want to save yourself too

(Why wont you save yourself too?)

There, there

So there.
