lyrics

Josie oh Jo you’re a helluva girl
You’re a star
You’re strong but I’m certain
We’re gonna get hurt in this bar
Your skin has gone pale
And your jeans won’t stay up past your arse
The customers notice and laugh
“get ‘em off, get em off’ - Jose

People are gory
And terrible stories get passed
Bout girls that have needs
And the time of the night
When yes and no aren’t that far apart
Our new friends aren’t true friends
Of that I am certain enough
The leers and the cheers
“get em off get em off get em off” Jose (eeeeee)

Josie oh Jo it is impossible to understand everyone
(Josie Josie oh Jo you’re a helluva girl)
Most of them are cool, most are harmless and like you
(But you’re lonely – I’m lonely too and it’s)
But one or two are in fact actual scum
(making me do things I won’t be)
Decisions are made in the most indecipherable way
(Happy I’ve done but I’m still going under oh)
Distorted importance the bubble, the trouble we face
(stop me)
Josie oh Jo get em off get em off get em off me
(Josie oh jo get em off get em of get em off get em off…)

Get em off get em off get em off get em off get em off me
Distorted importance the bubble, the trouble we’re facing
It’s enough it’s enough it’s enough it’s enough it’s enough see
It’s insane to think we’ll handle
Any of this plan
This is stupid smash and grab and get em off Jose

Places take and people change
Hale devolve and the mental age
At an alarming speed are we harming people
Or are they harming themselves?

People take and places change
Try you may, can’t recreate a certain
Balmy evening, that parting feeling
Or that safe little spot on your own
(get em off…)

Be faithful
Be thankful
We’ll take a spiritual angle
This empty trust becomes us
Oh just enjoy the numbness

Your darkness, your lessons
Your Hans Christian Andersons
You shout inside your head
But never say a word out loud to me (eeeee)

(get em off…)
I shout inside my head
But never have I said
I am not as strong as you, Josie.
