sad story, second chapter
where the miser lost it all
dressed in rags, colour purple
big man took a great big fall
for what

skips work and gets fired
got sort of back to where he was before
red faced and red handed
he got caught when he went for more
you scratched that
now you'll have to put it back
hang up fast
because the line's been tapped

in the kitchen, washing dishes
don't you ever, ever say my name
if you wanna front, front, front, front, front, front, front
then don't turn away
hell no
there's only one way out
when our hands touch, underwater
i'm as sharp as broken glass
hell no
there's only one way out

hell no
there's only one way out

secret message never found
in a loaded cage on the way down
back at home the sacred sisters all play like the king of come clean
back at home the scared sisters cannot laugh because they're alone

obligations are so passe
obligations are so passe
obligations cast away
je t'aime
je t'aime
je t'aime

    General Commenti hear 'rib cage' too. but my favorite lines are 'if you wanna front, front, front, front, front, front, front
    then don't turn away ' and 'obligations are so passe.' i think we all feel like that every now and then....

    Greed, lust, and carelessness can do any man in.
