the consolation of a bad thing that makes you feel just like your old self abraded you know i think you oughta write this down 'cause it could come in handy when you get too high and mountain sick told my bad friend you can go to hell told my good friend can you please not help in competition with the bad guys just to see who can get away with feeling worse off for the guilt that's so full of worms that i can't even roll over put an ear up and i'll let you listen to them whine about their food told my bad friend you can go to hell told my good friend can you please not help however i may beg no matter how i plead don't open then door just look in the screen cuz everybody loves an annexed halloween with blood that don't splash on your clothes
how would you like me to spin this to you i'm trying hard to fix my attitude or couldn't you tell couldn't you tell at all the weight of the heart on the transplant list is lessened when you say you can't stand this and it don't work on its own but we can see how it ticks for you because we play to no one while you hit the big one i'm underneath the dance floor where y'all electric slide all night thank you for watching us masturbate eight bucks for a shirt and some masking tape to tie one right on but you're not sticking this all on me just chained to the bed to go kick and spit in time and if you're so smart let's see you lose your mind when they rip the smile out of your face now do you think we'll sell out the place? fuck that we play to no one while you hit the big one i'm underneath the dance floor just trying to stay alive when i am a star, you can believe i'll remember this day the way that you got them lookin at me batting their eyes and gnashing their teeth and clapping on 1 and 3 like no contemporary could ever compare to all of my hot new looks that don't count when i'm so shook alright, guess that's a way to play it smart that'll get you halfway to where you are
nothing is easy when you do it right and that's an awful big to do left foot in and your right foot out oh but you still got yoked for your favorite shoes they play to your weak side there are some things that can be taught so if you gotta kill something and you're frightened of real life, then you can always try lure coursing they'll play to your weak side and cop to your weak crimes it's gonna be three lifetimes, so strap yourself in, lifetimes of disappointment reverse vampires with backwards hats take piss out of the blood that drags you on to ease the strain just cut the bad part out and throw the dogs your most sickly bone let 'em feed on your weak side and lean on your windpipe

so you pick three lucky numbers make 'em stick until you're old enough to read the scratch off sitting on the nightstand on your own let's hear it for your third attempt at trying to hack it in the real world the snitch jacket is hanging outside like 'what, you can't say hi?' crowing benign but dying on a deadline 'cause every time you say this is the last time that i'll ever have to fake it for your benefit you've got some problem with the way the situation was resolved well you can leave a comment three cheers six ways to sunday for trying to hack it in the real world get out of my car and out of my life i'm out of mom's pills and out of my mind so why am i crowing benign and dying on a deadline 'cause every time i say this is the last time that you'll ever have to hear from anyone outside your own bed and if you're searching for the thing the symptom fits just look up overhead it's there get down
been waiting a while with your mom and dad got 'em down to three fits a minute well how about that they're still copping your style i know i see you made but they're just jacking it out of admiration you gotta know that bought all the days gone bad, money just works like that ratchet up the asking price, isn't that very nice? or at least no longer very affordable been running a mile with your mom and dad they say the couple that works out together.. well, you know the old adage and we know it's not your birthday but we party like it is and even if it's not your birthday we don't give a shit bought all the days gone bad, money just works like that falls as it cuts the air lands on my naked skin and all the work i put in you know it's gonna pay off now, pay off big time that's kind of a tough one don't you think, considering all you've had to drink you're scratching the keys around the edge of your own ambition to go home
told you one too many times keep my name out of your fucking mouth today jaw slack, unpack, your shit, you gotta let it out just keep my name out of it thought they told you what would happen if this behavior were to continue mother taught me to be good and daddy showed me how to swing a baseball bat so don't let those words pass on between your lips again just keep my name out of it shame even when the light is out i worry that you can still see me
i'll leave you alone if you say go but if you want me here i'll tend to all the turtles and let them eat me slow till you come back as soon as they get to my kidneys call them off think they've had enough for now they can wait a minute for the rest of all our locked up limbs i'm a trophy wife to a slow goodbye that doesn't conclude when you wrap me tight till i'm calcified then i couldn't move if i wanted to i'll leave you alone though i'd like to be devoured next to you we'd shrink with every bite and as the turtles fill themselves we're set loose i'm tired of living guilty and picking at the lack alone in a loop and you're tired too i thought maybe you could sleep in a bit for once in your life, fool
