Once again I'm
In the breadline
What have we done
We tricked ourselves to think
Man was an angel
Now we know
Why we fell

And it has to cast a shadow when you hold it to the light
Religion and politics the people's opium and rice
Same old strings just a few new guitars
Blood sun earth earth sun moon stars
Hold it in your hand and see that it doesn't exist
Squeeze it in between your fingers every time you make a fist
Even if it means believing every self-deceiving twist
Deep into the sleep you fell dipping your feet in the abyss
What's a dollar worth an hour before nucular war?
When they're taking everything that isn't glued to the floor
When the space of everything won't let you move anymore
And all you can do is try to loosen the screws in the door
Looking for an exit in the hallway of mirrors
Looking for the bar so I can crawl inside a beer
Looking for love in line waiting for my ration
Hear a crash, looked over and saw the devil laughing

Once again I'm
In the breadline
What have we done
We tricked ourselves to think
Man was an angel
Now we know
Why we fell

Like the yellow submarine
Near the bottom of a bottomless stream
We ran out of steam
We can't even breath
We needed to see this
Previously if
We coulda, we woulda fleed from the scene
It's just me being me
That'll lead me to freedom
A beauty a beast
If they leave we don't need 'em
And is you for the freaks
Where they keep us like zebras
People, come see us, pay three bucks to beat us!
Creep like a thief in the night
See deep through the trees like an eagle in flight
We've reached new heights that were never in sight
And still everything is tangled in the string of my kite
A sinister sight
Mixed with the dimmest of light
Is bringing a bright
Kick to your willing to fight
No longer feeling uptight
Rather feeling the plight
Feeling like a million victims is killing the night
And so we say...

Once again I'm
In the breadline
What have we done
We tricked ourselves to think
Man was an angel
Now we know
Why we fell

I was young
I thought I had a lifetime
I thought I had enough time
I was wrong

Once again I'm
In the breadline
What have we done
We tricked ourselves to think
Man was an angel
Now we know
Why we fell
Once again I'm
In the breadline
What have we done
We tricked ourselves to think
Man was an angel
Now we know
Why we fell
