the lights from the local strip flicker on
as the sun slinks down, it calls it off
another day, another way to sell some stuff

when life is so good, it hurts
it burns your eyelids and gets worse

old friend,
its common sense
use your head

its so easy not to say what you had
when those bright lights wont shine in your eyes again

when life is so good, it hurts
it burns your eyelids and gets worse
oh, i will cut you in half
and then we'll see who laughs

    General CommentBest song on the album. The instrumental outro speaks without words. I think it's about how life can be bitter sweet in the moments we define ourselves and others. Just spectacular.
