about

A jaunty little pop number about bits of my personality rebelling against me because they think I'm a dick. I was pretty anti the idea of using the words "I'm in a pickle" in a song, but now I like it.

Also, I sincerely believe the bass noodle near the end justifies Robin's existence in its own right. Such is my love for it...

We made a video for this song, it's here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_PtwEam24w

lyrics

Lyrics:

I’m in a pickle and I can’t quite get out of it
I know my problem and what I should do about it
A little effort goes a long way, no doubt about it
It’s gone for good now, how will I do without it?

Oh little effort, won’t you stay? Let’s talk about this…
“That’s all we ever do, this time I’m leaving you!”
My sense of purpose went to join the circus, now this?
“He had the right idea, there’s nothing for me here.”

Knowing that you are going
Makes me sad and I think of the things I could do with you here
But I never took the time, you were mine and I didn’t know it.
Now you’re gone and I am one sad man, in a bottomless pit
Suffice to say that I can’t see my way out of it

I’m in a pickle, it’s a bit like a bottomless pit
A metaphorical mine where I sort of exist
A muddled puddle and I’m moored in the middle of it
Ashamed to say that I have swam way out of my depth

Knowing where I should be going
Makes me sad and I think of the things that are keeping me here
I would have so much to gain, got a brain but I never show it
I can feel it start to die, vital signs are slowing and he
Never really seemed to know what he wanted to be
So I suppose he’s got a lot in common with me

I’m over-tired, over-bored so all hands on deck
“This is a metaphor. A clumsy metaphor.”
Emotion sickness making me an emotional wreck
“All is forgiven, brain. We want you back again.”

I’m in a pickle and I can’t quite get out of it
I know my problem and what I should do about it
My little brain has gone a long way, he’s out of my head
I get the feeling I may never see him again
