March's SOTM: "My Analyst Says"

Per user Jay, March's song of the month is "My Analyst Says". There are at least two versions of the song out there. Feel free to discuss either here, especially in a comparative sense Smiley

In every version of the song I have, I can never really make out one line
 
It's something along the lines of
 
Quote:
Dream all my friends are spies or kamikazes

 
But I don't think that's actually what's being said.
 
Any ideas?

I think that line is correct as well. It makes sense with the theme of the song, and the lines that follows it. It is a paranoid, crazy person speaking from an analysts sofa, after all Wink

That was always my take on it.
 
There's also a third version on the anthology package that comes around every few months for anyone who doesn't know. It's a wonderful live take from 1980 that's closer to the version that would appear over a decade later on The Wreckard but more playful with some extra lyrics.
 
The way the drums roll into the mix after whatever the hell Kevin is talking about has to be one of my top five moments on The Wreckard. Fuck, it's so powerful.
 
Anyone try to decipher that intro? I think I got a quarter into it once before I gave up but I always catch "drown".

Ok... 1988 Communique EP Version...
 
Quote:

Who is the man - the way to kasa lita
Although weak I am fond of you
Chained to the world to get my head together
I took it all out on you
Now I'm talking to the man from a couch
He's gonna figure out why I
Dream all my friends are spies or kamakaze
My lovers mannequins
He's got degrees, he's schooled on how to listen
I'll take it all out on him

He's out to catch his secretary's eye
I'm trying to figure out why I'm alive!
Analyst says! Analyst says!

Analyst says you've got thinking pain
But keep your wallet open and I can help you
Analyst says you've got one solution: come more often

He says you're gonna need a lot of bread
You got a lot of head to get better
You're gonna need another job
You gotta make a lot to get better
I said I think I got this figured out
I didn't need to shout but I'm fed up
You got me working nearly every day
I got no energy to get better
No -

He's thinking about what he's gonna drive
Tryin' to figure out why I'm alive
Analyst says
You got one solution
Come more often

Well, he still pronounces it oddly!
 
It's the way he says it that has always thrown me on that line
