LyricSong Title
Tomorrow when I wake up, I’m finding my brother and making him take me back down to the water
And this cop, he pulled him off to the side of the road. And he said 'Officer, officer, you’ve got the wrong man.'
Let's have a nice clean cut / Like a bag we buy and divy up
Besides we all are making money / And we are all **** alone / And we don't know what we are doing
And if it seems like an accident / A collage of senselessness / You aren't looking hard enough
No, no, I think it is more like a ghost that's been following us both
The angry are animals senseless and savage / they act without order in logical lapses
Well, kindness is a card game or a bent-up cigarette / In the trenches, in the hard rain with the bullet and a bet
I just keep drinking the poison and smoking the cartons / A pack and a half a day
Like a bad habit / The one you couldn't kick / There it always is
I get cocaine from this girl I met and my brother buys me alcohol
And no one's sure how all of this got started, but we're gonna make 'em goddamn certain how it's gonna end / Oh yeah we will!
It's exploding bags, aerosol cans / Southbound buses, Peter Pan / They left it up to us again
They crawl from the oceans to paint in the caves / But I'm workin' all weekend / I need to get paid
As they stare down at their books and realize they have been lied to / But if this is real then I was mistaken
And I close the door and I rest my head on the tile floor
Now ghosts they have their secrets and they'll tell them to a few / So you could never pay attention when they're whispering to you
Took a while to accept our fate and all the chance it eliminates / Once we did, there was nothing to pretend
You always tell me anyone could be just like me
Theres a show we can see at the base outside of town / Where the planes they turn circles in the air
But me, I'm a single cell on a serpent's tongue / There's a muddy field where a garden was
You should wash your hair more / You should look more like us
If your thoughts should turn to death / Gotta stomp them out, like a cigarette
LyricSong Title
And so I've learned to retreat at the first sign of danger / I mean, why wait around if it's just to surrender?
These fears of yours like painted **** / They will not stay the night
So I will turn black and white / Become that horoscope you're reading
My brother went to college to become a doctor / And if he studies hard enough, he'll end up just like father
I kissed a girl with a broken jaw that her father gave to her
I set my watch to the atomic clock / I hear the crowd count down 'til the bomb gets dropped
Well, I went back to my rented Cadillac and company jet / Like a newly orphaned refugee, retracing my steps
I'm sorry about the phone call, and waking you / I know that it's late
Yeah that's it, I think you're sticking with me now because I'm all you've got
So let us rejoice in all this pink noise / An oscillation that we can pin point / We're right here
So don't fall for that Christ bait / It's about as passe as rockstar arrogance
Once we're gone, who's gonna care if we were ever here at all?
Well I take two a day to make my brain behave / It never does but who's to say / At least my doctor gets paid
It's this picture I have seen / We're on a sloping hill of green / And you are walking there beside me
You'll be free child once you have died / From the shackles of language and measurable time
Now I'm staring at the sun / Waitin' for it to explode / Because a day is gonna come
He's poisonous, reasonless, demons and Jesus, if he died it'd be just as well
The gold medal gleams / So hang it around my neck / 'Cause I am deserving it / The champion of idiots
All this death must need a counterweight / Always someone born again
Making speeches to their sister on the telephone / Saying, 'You come home. Darling, you come here.'
But as for me I'm coming to the final chapter / I read all of the pages and there's still no answer
Yes, finally the day has arrived / So seek and rejoice!
