Pleasure and pain and pride and me
Racing to the top of the apple tree
Each one with plans only he can see
I'm gonna throw 'em off if they don't throw me

Pleasure and pain and pride and me
Sailing with the sharks to the middle of the sea
Each wave the mirror, each crest a key
I'm gonna turn 'em under if they dont turn me

Everybody say don't trust that snake
See, everybody got a deal to make me
Everybody stand on the corner for the bus
At the best losing time the worst losin' love
Everybody grabs every thing that they covet
Acting out loud like their minds were above it
Everybody covers the earth like a blanket
Extending arms to the tree trunk to shake it

Pleasure and pain and pride and me
Staying up late to eyeball the TV
Each got a channel only he can see
I'm gonna change 'em up if they dont change me

Everybody say dont trust that honey bee
Everybody buzzin' with a bargain to bleed me
Everybody elbows on the corner for the bus
The best losing time, at their worst losing love
Everybody steals a quick sight that they covet
Glancing off though, as their minds drift above it
Everybody shakes off the earth like a blanket
Edging along limbs to branch ends to make it

Pleasure and pain and pride and me
Shooting our mouths at theirr falling leaves
We're gonna make war or we're gonna make peace
And I'm gonna lead the charge if it don't lead me
