Fortune Teller

There’s to much information in my face
Don’t know anybody, feel so out of place
I’m bored with this century, and I’m sick of it all
Here I am standing on the killing floor
Got a fever burning and it don’t feel right
Yeah my heads rushing right out of my mind
Went to see the doctor and he gave me pills
Yeah they numbed my mind but don’t cure my ill’s

What’s in the future cos I can’t see
Fortune teller got me down on my knees

Go and see the fortune teller
Will she tell me all she knows
Go and see the fortune teller baby
Find out how it goes

I found myself living a concrete hell
Found myself thinking don’t need no-one else
I’m feeling damaged yeah I feel deranged
I need something to counter act the pain
Can’t see the stars but could they give me a sign
Yeah I need to know now don’t tell me lies
I’ve been completely going out of my mind
I feel beat up just like Jesus Christ

What’s in the future cos I can’t see
Fortune teller got me down on my knees

Go and see the fortune teller
Will she tell me all she knows
Go and see the fortune teller baby
Find out how it goes

We are living g beneath a dying sun
Used to believe in something, that’s been shot to fuck
I’m bored with this century and I’m sick of it all
Here I am standing on the killer floor

What’s in the future cos I can’t see
Fortune teller got me down on my knees

Go and see the fortune teller
Will she tell me all she knows
Go and see the fortune teller baby
Find out how it goes
Yeah so when am I gonna get better
Will I find out in my time
Go and see the fortune teller baby
Find out how it goes

Song Notes

Tim: I’d met some girls when I was traveling and they were tuned into all this psychic stuff. It seemed to make sense to me. It’s pretty freaky when someone tells you stuff about yourself they have no way of knowing. But this song takes a kind of jokey approach to the whole thing - I wasn’t taking the lyric to seriously.
