The Lawrence Arms – Cut It Up lyrics

So you're sinking kinda fast,
That a great big light was your past.
This is more than waking up when you're still at the bar
Hanging around with the queens after dark
We've come a long way to end up lost,
We're drifting, yeah were drifting along
Oh, lord

Cut it up until the pain goes away

Everything on the avenue is a little more green
And everyone's wearing just a little decay
Cut it up and hand it over
I don't wanna remember

Cut it up until the pain goes away

When the ship done sinks
And the crew done drowns
What am I gonna do?
I'm not hanging around
This cruise is ending
Please hang on to your stub
Thank you for coming
And thanks for the love, thanks for the love

Let's cut it up 'til the pain goes away.
