Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly...

We're the ones who you paid to see a piece of my soul for your money
And it's my job, to smile while pigs feast
Swallows slop out of the head of a crooked priest

The mantra they sell, it stings like hell
And they know not to ask or think or tell
Play in the mud like good girls and boys
And we'll feed you the shit that we're sure we can sell
And I go...

Head first in the river.
Head first in the river.
Lost my breath in the river.
Head first in the...

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

I forget your name.

Would you believe they wanna know about me
I wear my lungs upon my sleeves
And that one there might as well be
Filling his shot glass with gasoline

They made me in the factory
Where they made my friends and we work for free
But that's alright cause my soul I keep
And these bones are mere accidents

Head first in the river.
Head first in the river.
Lost my breath in the river.
Head first in the...

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name
Oh I forget your name

We weren't built to last this long [x4]

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to...
Yeah they love to.

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

Move it's what they say
Sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
Yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.
