"The Hopes and Dreams of Heaven's 10,000 Whores" as written by and John Mark Eitzel....
When I spend too much time alone, I get afraid
Afraid that you’re gonna leave me breathing
Afraid of what they’d throw in the way
In the way of something simple like leaving

"Forgive me if you can," said the sad cashier
"For the dollars and cents our love has become
I didn’t sell you anything, my dear
You were a scarecrow looking for a bonfire to sleep on"

"Believe me if you can," said the pile of bones
"I think that this is all there is left to see.
Just waiting for my perscription to come
Because every second in hell dissolves more of me

And all of heaven’s 10,000 whores
Are on a partyline to his big toe
Singing, "Ooh, I just can’t do it anymore
So don’t bother asking
Now you know"

Don’t bother me with little things
Pennies, nickels, quarters, and dimes
They’ve all taken me as far as I’m gonna go
So don’t bother asking now you know
Believe me if you can
