Clutch – Paper & Strife lyrics
Reptilian oil
????? set to kill
One-hundred-fifty pesos
Ain’t enough to pay these bills
Liberate the Spanish prisoner
The clock’s tickin’
And the time grows near
If you won’t
Maybe your neighbour will
Regional salesman
Of the year

Iraqi dinars
By the metric ton
Robert Johnson’s contract
Oh you know you need one
Liberate the Spanish prisoner
The clock’s tickin’
And the time grows near
If you won’t
Maybe your neighbour will
Regional salesman
Of the year
If you won’t
Maybe your neighbour will
Regional salesman
Of the year

The twisted words of a grifter
Tall tales of a marginal life
Heart as dark as (????)
The world turns on paper and strife
Uh huh
Paper and strife

You’re a shining example
Of America at her best
Unlock the Jones’s next door
Who are clearly raging communists
Liberate the Spanish prisoner
The clock’s tickin’
And the time grows near
If you won’t
Maybe your neighbour will
Regional salesman
Of the year
If you won’t
Maybe your neighbour will
Regional salesman
Of the year

The twisted words of a grifter
Tall tales of a marginal life
Heart as dark as (????)
The world turns on paper and strife
Uh huh
Paper and strife
