'Negative friendship', if there is such a thing, is the subject of this outpouring. It's essentially me and my guitar. I wanted to do something quick, something silly, but something musically, vocally and lyrically demanding...

About the song
A song about 'negative friendship'. It's essentially me and my guitar...

I wanted to do something quick, something silly, but something demanding - musically, lyrically and vocally. I found these half-written words in a drawer (or was it these half-drawn words in a writer?)and I was off! It was hard work, but I set a time limit which expired, and so it is done.
Lyrics
You're the hammer I'm a nail,
I'm no good without you;
I'm so calm and you're a sail,
Praying I will change.

You're the harpoon I'm the whale,
Wasted when you miss me;
We are all these things and more -
You're the knocker, I'm the door.

Hey! Neil Armstrong, I'm the moon -
Put your boot in my face;
Uri Geller! I'm a spoon -
Bend me, break me, break me...

I'm a tooth and you're the plaque,
You're the thumb and I'm the tack,
You're US and I'm Iraq:
I defend while you attack...

You're so good, you're so good at making me feel bad,
You're the worst best, best worst friend I ever had.
We'll have played this game a million years -
This bitter, sad jihad,
You're the worst best, best worst friend...

Someone dropped you on your head
And broke your window on the world
You patched it up with vitriol
And other things, unsuitable
But it's twisted, somehow twisted

You're Neil Armstrong, I'm the moon -
Put your boot in my face;
Yuri Gagarin! Hey! I'm a baboon -
But still the first man in Myspace.

You're the cross on which I fail,
You're the black hole in my pail,
Simon Templar's Holy grail,
You're the hammer, I'm the nail...

Oh, you're so good, you're so good at making me feel bad,
You're the worst best, best worst friend I ever had.
We'll have played this game a million years -
This bitter, sad jihad,
And you're the worst best, best worst friend I ever had...
