Felix Under the Stairs

Words: Eric / Music: Eric and Dachshund

Everything I seem to touch
ends up dead and I’ll have the corpse
Why don’t they just stop following me?
I told them all I knew — well, mostly…

Don’t turn the light on ‘cuz I don’t want you to die
It’s been so long since I’ve heard someone else’s side
Won’t you keep talking and tell me what’s going on?
It’s been so long since I’ve been out from under the
stairs…

I’m sure that they are all watching me
I’ve put some things together you see
the trash-man he comes daily
I think he’s the one they should be following…

Don’t turn the light on ‘cuz I don’t want you to die
It’s been so long since I’ve heard someone else’s side
Won’t you keep talking and tell me what’s going on?
It’s been so long since I’ve been out from under the
stairs…

(ooh) the stairs
(ah) the stairs

Every time that I wake up
I find a new cadaver at my feet
I’m running out of spaces to hide them
I don’t think the trash-man knows about them yet…

Don’t turn the light on ‘cuz I don’t want you to die
It’s been so long since I’ve heard someone else’s side
Won’t you keep talking and tell me what’s going on?
It’s been so long since I’ve been out from under the
stairs…
