Snakes Among Us


your garbage it is growing

and your weapons and rebellions

were charged on daddy抯 card

to all your baffled looks

we didn抰 choose to do this the hard way

but we scream our lungs and we raise our glasses

to all the girls, and all the boys

with the first five minutes of a war always at their sides

(and like the man said?

"i fall asleep with pen in hand there抯 something

you should know"

and all your guts and all your goals

came in the shiny promo package

knew how this would end before you bled for the beginning

strike a pose

so when you get off your happy little bus

with your happy little smiles

with your happy little instruments that never go out of tune

we will be fucking up and missing words

following you in a van that we had to beg to start

and of course we抮e fucking angry

and of course we抮e tired and ugly

it抯 not all a sunny Sunday

(and like the man said?

"you can take a road that takes you to the stars

i can take a road that will see me through"
