Take my bloated wife, yeah she’s crampin’ my style
Tell her I’m going sailin’
This corroded lake, I could die just the same
Tell her I’m gonna sail it

Met a man on the sidewalk, and he had a bird in a metal cage
And he told me love is not a crime
So I asked him what he thought I meant
And he pointed at my bloated life
And he pointed at his mouth and said:

“Makes you feel more alive, makes you feel more inside
Makes a fool out of cancer…
Just a couple of thieves
Do ya know what I mean? Do ya know what I mean?

    General CommentHeh, this is actually my favorite song by them. My favorite living band gets no attention at all, do they T__T. When I'm rich I'm giving the four of them a million dollars.

    This is about a man unhappy with his life, perhaps having a midlife crisis. He doesn't love his wife anymore, and he wants to get away. He falls in love with another girl and a man tells him it's alright, he's only doing it to feel younger, and steal a little happiness out of life.
