Other Info:
-Broadcast on July 30th, 1993 by "Naked City", a
British TV show. During the original broadcast, the
song followed a 'therapy session', which is also (at
least in part) on Vieuphoria.On the video, these
two segments are separated. However, during the
Vieuphoria version of this performance,clips from the
therapy session are shown, like when SP sticks up
their middle fingers up at the therapist as they
leave in a van. It is also includes a montage of
footage like Billy during the early years, other
concerts,etc. This style of montage would return in
the version of the "Untitled" video shown on MTV
Europe in 2001 to promote the Greatest Hits.

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow

We'll try and ease the pain
But somehow we'll feel the same
Well, no one knows
Where our secrets go

I send a heart to all my dearies
When your life is so, so dreary
I'm rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils

And I fail
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will

Mother weep the years I'm missing
All our time can't be given
Shut my mouth and strike the demons
That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season
Out of love and out of feeling
So bad

When I can, I will
Words defy the plans
When I can, I will

Fool enough to almost be it
And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel this
Always old, I'll always feel this

No more promise, no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me
I just want to be me
When I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will
