Sorry I can’t refrain from asking
When we’re dust you'll get past it
You’ll be buried in your pretty casket
With your family friends and assets
The songs they sing are passive
You hope that they wont last and
they’ll keep singing them songs I promise
Even if you don't like them
Just go and plug your ears then

We chalked up
and we choked up
we talked up
and we toked up
and we woke up
when we found out we were dead
You cried out
I spied out
The bedroom window of my mother’s house
And the men who gossip told me to watch out

Money ain’t it brilliant
Just funny how the world ends
Strung out between two oak limbs
Girl don’t you catch this
It’s coming fast and endless
There’s no time to breath
when you're a favorite
You left the bed in protest
to go get high above my head
and fell asleep tangled by your necklace
in the kitchen
The kids balloons are popping
their brains are slowly stopping
still I drank my heart into abuse
I think I’ve met more people than I’d choose
Roll your dollars up
The men are drooling
Getting drunk to watch the world end
All that they can stare at is you
All that you can stare at is you
So lets all give our skin to you
Let's all drink our skin into abuse
Let's all bury our selves with you
Let's bury ourselves with you
Let's bury ourselves with you
