Welcome to the end of the night, where everyone reeks of stale smoke, dirty jokes
Stop me if you've heard this one
The ransoms over, where's my cut, cut, cut, cut?
Skewered on an open flame I bought you off the spit
Pose for me, pose for me
Paws and knees trace around the switchblade gash
We're all born fresh, but now we rot, rot, rot, rot

I'm the bastard kid of a dead-beat town
You're just what I need to bring me down
I've got enough strength for one more round
Does that sound good to you?
It sounds good to me, baby
I'm the lucky son of a bitch you need to keep alive your losing streak
I've got one more trick up my sleeve
Does that work for you?
Well it works for me, baby

And you can't tear your eyes away ‘cause she's got such a pretty face
And one filthy fucking mind
I will wait outside the gates
And I won’t leave ‘til you show me what's on the inside
I can't shake this lack of sleep
It feasts on me
‘Til you show me what’s on the inside

I'm the bastard kid of a dead-beat town
You're just what I need to bring me down
I've got enough strength for one more round
Is that good for you?
Well it’s good for me, baby
Our mothers sleep with lottery dreams
Our fathers built the pyramid schemes
Nothing is ever what it seems
But it works for you
‘Cause it works for me

You just had yourself a taste of how sweet the life could be if you could just leave yours behind.
