Under coats there's sex club cards
Stacks of photos in unknown shelves
It's merely evidence we're feeling former ourselves

The Overcoatsters step outside
At night shared women and men
It was the secret life of Agent S&M

Oh-Oh-Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

In the paper they claim that Sears
had commissioned Julia Scher
To improve their image with the budding avant-garde

When the avant-garde has stepped in
The dirty lives that left a stench
So Julia Ah-Oh was left in the basement

Oh-Oh-Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

Oh Oh Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

We can sin with our hands in pockets
We can grin with a cherub's smile
And there is still a chorus singing we are vile

Shallow graves and topless babes
Who will judge how you behave?
While we go and live our dirty lives

Oh-Oh-Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

Oh Oh Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

Oh-Oh-Oh Dirty Lives Oh
Dirty Lives Oh-Oh-Oh

    General CommentThis song is about how everyone judges everyone and wants to find something wrong with them. Even when your doing nothing wrong (Sin with hands in pockets) and even doing the right thing (cherub's smile) people will say your not a good person for whatever the reason. They say we live Dirty Lives, but they don't see it that way at all.
