I Don’t Know What I’m Doing Lyrics – Maximo Park

I get so scared and I feel such guilt
Like when you first drew blood
Although the situation is improving
But when your mood is good it gives us all a lift
Although your secret language is confusing

And when I work it all out I’ll tell you
I know you know I don’t know what I’m doing
Did I pass it on – all the anger and doubt?
Your behaviour leads to one conclusion
When I work it all out I’ll tell you

My tastes are still the same
It’s just my habits that’ve changed
The nightly ritual is new
But feels as old as time
I guide my hands along
The contours of your mother’s back
But there are knots I can’t erase
I end up losing track
You’re no accessory
You are a part of me
It’s my job to conceal
The difficulty of the moment

And when I work it all out I’ll tell you
I know you know I don’t know what I’m doing
Did I pass it on – all the anger and doubt?
Your behaviour leads to one conclusion

I helped make you
And I’ve condemned you
To see my frailties
The fate of a family
But I helped make you
And I’ll placate you
I helped make you
And I’ll placate you…

And when I work it all out I’ll tell you
I know you know I don’t know what I’m doing
Did I pass it on – all the anger and doubt?
Your behaviour leads to one conclusion

When I work it all out I’ll tell you
I know you know I don’t know what I’m doing
Did I pass it on – all the anger and doubt?
I know you know I don’t know what I’m doing
