Say one thing for sorrow; say nothing for joy
It's a piss over our parade, the devices you employ
Say one thing for sorrow; it never leaves me dry
As I beg, steal and borrow; there's no tears when I cry
But I try and try and try and try again; But I try and try and try and try again

But no, nothing can stop me, no, nothing at all
I'm the entrance and the exit, the clogging will make you stall
Now your conscience clear stall, now you've got so old
It's in the way you'll never wake up; in the way you feel the cold

Time is running out

Looks invent a felling in a meaningless exchange
It's a testament to perseverance; A homage to a shame
COVER YOUR MOUTH

Time is running out

Looks invent a felling in a meaningless exchange
It's a testament to perseverance; A homage to a shame
COVER YOUR MOUTH

Undone and reckless is your mind
It's up to you; trust or not trust alone
COVER YOUR MOUTH AND HOLD IT, HOLD IT, HOLD IT
Oh that sacred substance I crave;
Is just another privilege I wave
HOLD IT, HOLD IT, F-F-F-FUCKIN' HOLD IT, HOLD IT, HOLD IT

It's power I am drawn to;
Its potency and flavour;
Drives me and ignites me;
Fuels a dirty secret

WHY CAN'T I JUST TELL?
WHY CAN'T I JUST TELL THE TRUTH??
