high maintenance friend,
you know you drive me up the wall, it's so revealing,
when you are backed into a corner by the ceiling.
the people all around you
well they tremble and they pander out of fear,
they're all tiptoeing around what you don't want to hear

when you've been round here for too long,
you'll have a list like mine of
social disaster danger zones
you'll learn you don't spend time in
no you'll try to avoid them
some people are poison
high maintenance friend
hope i don't see you again.

high maintenance friend,
you know i stumble over all these brackish feelings,
i'm doing backflips to avoid saying what i really think of you.
and what i think is that i wish you all the best.
and how i hope that you will call me later once you've
socially adjusted and i can trust you.

high maintenance friend, hope i don't see you again.
