Mike Doughty – 40 Grand In The Hole lyrics

40 grand in the hole
scraping my dreams out of the sugar bowl
my love for you's corrupt
write down the words and then I snort them up

when will I love someone?
When will someone be mine?
40 grand in the hole
I'm gonna open it up and let my yearning shine

Hours that I have slept
Slumping down down like a narcolept
Surrendering to joy
Standing in line at Teriyaki Boy

When will I hear the click?
When will I know that it is time to split?
What is the use of it?
What is my life without the heart at risk?
