Painkillers will divide what's inside
Twenty hours in, with time on your side
But you were walking around the house looking down and out upside down
But you were walking around the house looking down and out north and south

I'm in love with a black lung, with a boxing glove
An open cut under a street light blood
Cat piss on clothes and God has no hands
Blood clots in nose and God has no hands, I guess

Has that job just wore your mind? That's just fine.
Fuckin' waste, your mouth is dry, TV screens and a fructose spine.
Let the suits kill your child, don't ask why.
Let the screens kill your child, don't ask yourself why.

What can I do?
I want to pay you back
But I don't make enough
I want to pay you back
But I don't make enough
I don't make enough
I want to pay you back
I want to pay you back
But I don't make enough
Don't make enough
I don't make uh---

Fifteen years and you don't care
Why would you?
