To pick up the tip doesn't mean a lot
Feel inside your drugs
If we own the night, then spread it out
Or pack up without a clue

Well, cause by their own
And by default
Time to find the noose

Like your face being forced to the floor

I got a taste of the benefits
Five foot change
There's no better way to hash it out
So let's set up your time to bail

Well, cause now the cracks
Should we intervene?
I hold this albatross

Like your face being forced to the floor
When either way, you're way too close to it all

Pay up, never wait 'em out
Cover... me up, take it all
Take it all


Take it all the way... right back down


Pay up, never take it all
Take it all

Like your face being forced to the floor
When either way, you're way too close to it all
Like your face being forced to the floor
Either way, you're way too close to it all

Too close to it all

    You're right about the bernie madoff thing. They were interviewed on a local radio station here and said that this is what the song was about.

    Its about bernie madoff and his ponzi scheme. This is a song meant for people who have been taken advantage of.

    Kinda have a feeling, mostly because of how political their lyrics often turn out, that it has something to do with obama. You can't veto the world.

    It's about anyone who has been taken advantage of. The whole song is a metaphor to that, much like other chevelle songs. Partially quoted from pete loeffler, lead singer.
