Sometimes recovery takes half a day
then lips get red the lights go down and all the kiddies come out to play
well just a little skin
it keeps them coming back
for just a little sin
it's how you look not how you act

A drunken sprawl that claims these streets most every night
to search and destroy the chosen few who thought they might get out alive
well just a little skin
it keeps them coming back
for just a little sin
no matter what price it exacts

You pay your dues
on battered lips and broken themes
your little scenes played out in bars
well welcome to the grown-up world
it's time you learned
we are the stars of amateur hour

A certain inept licentiousness
for heartless gluttony and squalid nights of heated promises
well just a little skin
it brings us crawling back
for just a little sin
yeah, we all want it like that

You pay your dues
on battered lips and broken themes
your little scenes played out in bars
well welcome to the grown-up world
it's time you learned
we are the stars of amateur hour

You pay your dues
on battered lips and broken themes
your little scenes played out in bars
well welcome to the grown-up world
it's time you learned
we are the stars
the stars
the stars
