Crawled across this glass, slept on these nails
Dissapointment never fails
These blood shot eyes focus on your flaws
Now reach for the shortest straw
Wide awake these nights, nightmares at ease
Now I become an anomaly
Shortness of breath program destruct
Cotton candy framed a paper cut!

Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back-back where it belongs
Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back-back where it came from

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Open empty mouths,all tied in knots
Memories I thought that I forgot
These stomach pains, strain of disease
Can't hear my prayers ignore my pleas
A mothers child, a soldier's guilt
Smell the flowers before they wilt
Send a funeral wreath, a folded flag
A yellow ribbon wrapped around a body bag!

Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back-back where it belongs
Take one last breath fill up your lungs
Pay it back take it back-back where it came from

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Back and fourth from work 40 hours till home
Everyday the same this haggard life is my own
Hungry mouths need value meals
Super size my future and these 18 wheels
I'm as blue as my collar and this bruise of mine
Hammered down teamster bought box of pine

I swear on my mother's eyes
I had nothing to do with your demise
I'm lost without you
So let's propose a toast to the famine ghost

Pay it back take it back-back where it belongs
Pay it back take it back-back where it came from
