She's a ditz but I don't worry about that
trade her in when her mouth gets bigger than her ass
I guess I'm a winner because when I open my mouth I just get thinner
sometimes it's an inconvenience but I don't worry about that

Hit or miss, well I'll let you worry about that
trade ‘em in when their egos get bigger that their fans
I guess I'm a sinner because when I open my mouth there ain't no winner
sometimes I'm an inconvenience but don't you worry about that
no don't you worry about that

Comfortable criminals
bleeding out rock and roll
comfortable criminals like to lay low

Zero's in but don't you worry about that
it's a business just like guns and leg hold traps
I guess heads are thicker
so when you open your mouth you'd better think twice quicker
sometimes you're an inconvenience
but don't you worry about that

Every now and then we lose a little
every now and then it's back to the middle
like it's the beginning of the end
every now and then we lose some sight
every now and then you know the money's all right
so it's easy to defend
every now and then I wipe the look off my face
every now and then it puts me back in my place
like it's been a while

Comfortable criminals
bleeding out rock and roll
comfortable criminals like to lay low
they like to lay low

    General CommentIt's a B-Side from Avalanche. Musically, it sounds like A Long Way Down. I dunno where you'd find it nowadays.

    General Commentoh, and the last line of the first bit is
    "sometimes it's and inconvenience, but don't you worry 'bout that"
