Living your life in the gray
Is the new American way
We're spending what we haven't made

And we save our money in good faith
And we work hard for our living wage
But still the bank's gotta break

'Cause a dream's a lie
And a snake it bit you
When you were awake
And the books are fried
You are bankrupted because
All the loans you take

Big wave
Big wave
Big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

I can't sleep these days
And my blues they won't go away
So there are these little pills I've been takin

And my doctor she says that they're safe
But I've been sleepwalking down to the lake
And waking up in the water

And the feeling's alright
But the snake it bit me
When I wasn't awake
And the scripts they lie
I have been poisoned from all the things I take

Big wave
Big wave

Big wave
It's gonna hit me with a big wave

Big wave
Big wave
Big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

I know you feel deprived (you don't trust me)
Our love is still alive (you never touch me)
Still it's just that I don't feel like it much these days

And our love's a lie
'Cause a snake it visits me
When you are away
And the dreams don't lie
I've been corrupted 'cause
All the lovers I take

Big wave
Big wave
Big wave
You're gonna hit me with a big wave

Big wave
Big wave
Big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

Big wave
Big wave
Big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave
