the cash cow is feeding us
someone we dont know is buying us
and we are temporary

do you, want to feel
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)

cant complain, cant complain, cant complain
we have nothing left to lose
before we sleep together
(before we sleep together)

maybe, a bullet or saint
and i guess were sent for motion
with conductivity whole

do you, want to feel
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)
do you, want to feel
a sleep soundly propostion?
(a sleep soundly propostion)

cant complain, cant complain, cant complain
im debonair, im debonair, so debonair
cant complain, cant complain, cant complain
im debonair, im debonair, so debonair

we are temporary
(we're temporary)
temporary

do you, want to feel
(do you want to)
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)
do you, want to feel
(do you, want to)
a sleep soundly propostion?
(a sleep soundly propostion)

    General Commentit's "someone we don't know is violent." That line definitely ends with a T sound.

    Also

    "they've been pulling our strings"...NOT "maybe, a bullet or saint"

    ALSO

    "Do you, want to feel
    a swiss army proposition?"

    Think about it. Knife. Swiss army.

    General CommentSound to me like he says:

    "Some one we don't know is buying lunch"

    and I think this song is about signing with a new label.

    General Commentit's most definitely about a new label.. it is buying lunch and it is swiss army proposition. seems like hes singing about someone buying them out... maybe like sony bought them out in some way or something.. yeah pretty sure it is about sony but it doesnt seem its so much about the benefits but more about the setbacks...

    General Commentit's about feeling like a piece of merchandise as opposed to human. like they can be bought or traded like something in a store. i also think it is 'sleep soundly proposition'. a proposition to help them sleep more soundly as they no longer have to worry about financial problems, for example.

    General CommentLOL i have this cd, lyrics =


    The cash cow is feeding us, someone we don't know is buying lunch.
    And we are temporary...

    Do you want to feel liek the knife is in you?
    Can't complain [x3]

    We have nothing left to lose,
    Before we sleep together.
    They've been pulling our strings,
    And I guess we're set for motion
    With productivity.

    Do you want to feel like the knife is in you? (Like the knife is in you)
    Do you want to feel a swiss army proposition? (Swiss army proposition)

    Can't complain [x3]
    I'm debonair, debonair, so debonair.
    [x2]

    We are temporary. [x2]

    Do you want to feel like the knife is in you? (Like the knife is in you)
    Do you want to feel a swiss army proposition? (Swiss army proposition)
    Do you want to feel (Do you wanna feel?) like the knife is in you? (Like the knife is in you)
    Do you want to feel (Do you wanna feel?) a swiss army proposition? (Swiss army proposition)
    Do you want to feel (Do you wanna feel?) like the knife is in you? (Like the knife is in you)
    Do you want to feel (Do you wanna feel?) a swiss army proposition? (Swiss army proposition)

    Can't complain [x3]
    I'm debonair, debonair, so debonair.
    [x2]
    I can't complain.
