"Venosa" as written by and Michael Feerick....

You shouldn’t have to pay for this
‘Cause you didn’t ask for it
You shouldn’t have to pay for this
Living is a counterfeit
You shouldn’t have to pay for this
‘Cause you didn’t ask for it
You shouldn’t have to pay for this
Living is a counterfeit

You tie me to the telephone
Make me be a slave to it
Watching you on nights alone
Taking down the deficit
You tie me to the telephone
Make me be a slave to it
Watching all the nights alone
Taking down the deficit

All you’ve ever known
Is what they told you
All you’ve ever known
Is what they told you
And they told you
That you weren’t safe
Sold you to the sun

Picking up removables
Attatching all the implements
Walking to the ritual
Clearing all the evidence
Picking up removables
Attatching all the implements
Walking to the ritual
Clearing all the evidence

All you’ve ever known
Is what they told you
All you’ve ever known
Is what they told you
And they told you
That you weren’t safe
Sold you to the sun

    You shouldn’t have to pay for this ‘cos you didn’t ask for it
    You shouldn’t have to pay to live, living is a counterfeit
    You shouldn’t have to pay for this ‘cos you didn’t ask for it
    You shouldn’t have to pay to live, living is a counterfeit

    They tied me to the telephone, made me be a slave to it
    Watching her on nights alone taking down the deficit
    Tied me to the telephone, made me be a slave to it
    Watching her on nights alone taking down the deficit

    CHORUS
    All you’ve ever known is what they sold you
    All you’ve ever known is what they sold you
    And they told you that you weren’t safe, sold you to the sun

    Picking out removables
    Attaching all the implements
    Walking to the ritual
    Clearing all the evidence
    Picking out removables
    Attaching all the implements
    Walking to the ritual
    Clearing all the evidence

    General CommentI can't believe more people haven't commented on this song. Is one of the best tunes i've heard in life. I don't really get what the lyrics are about though :(
