Beck – Pay No Mind lyrics

(this is song two on the album
This is the album right here
Burn the album)

Tonight the city is full of morgues
And all the toilets are overflowing
There's shopping malls coming out of the walls
As we walk out among the manure

That's why
I pay no mind
I pay no mind
I pay no mind

Give the finger to the rock 'n' roll singer
As he's dancing upon your paycheck
The sales climb high through the garbage-pail sky
Like a giant dildo crushing the sun

That's why
I pay no mind
Sleep in slime
I just got signed

So get out your lead-pipe pipe dreams
Get out your ten-foot flags
The insects are huge and the poison's all been used
And the drugs won't kill your day job... Honey

That's why
I pay no mind
I pay no mind
I pay no mind

That's why
I pay no mind [x7]

(note: on the vinyl version of "Pay No Mind" the lead-in is simply Beck counting. And there's an extra verse which goes:

Somebody burned down the picnic
Someone kissed their own ass by mistake
The cliches are turning into people
With the greeting cards glued to their face
