lyrics

My Inner Muse is a fickle bitch,
I sometimes wonder if she's mine
I have to roll her lots of funny cigarettes,
I have to ply her with wine
Just to get her to talk to me,
Otherwise she's just not there
Sometimes I find her truly inspirational
But usually her slate is bare

My Inner Muse is a fickle bitch,
At her best she's something to astound
I said I'll C U Next Tuesday night
But she didn't even come around
I was standing there with my guitar,
Letting all my bandmates down
I shrugged and tried to smile sheepishly
But all the others wore a frown

Why's it so hard to get a word out, edgeways, straight up, upside down
Why does she treat me like a clown?
If I could just hold her, could control her under my thumb I could stand up tall
How can I make her answer to my beck and call?

My Inner Muse is a fickle bitch,
I somehow gotta render her tame
I need to scratch my creative itch
And I'm sick and tired of her games
I need to get inside myself
But she's locked my head and stolen the key
Even tho' we could be good together
She prefers to keep me on my knees

Why's it so hard to get a word out, edgeways, straight up, upside down
Why does she treat me like a clown?
If I could just hold her, could control her under my thumb I could stand up tall
How can I make her answer to my beck and call?
