Burnt the hips
Don't say a word
Take the bait
The ignorant jerk
Ain't had no fun
In a real long time
Just goin' to work
Work all the time

And I stand, I stand back
'Cause I want to watch it burn

Just before you fall asleep
That is where you wanna be

Brass made in oil
No longer mold
The owl had time
Nothing through
I watched it grow
This crooked terrain
The crooked bridge
From which you swing

And I stand, I stand back
'Cause I want to watch it burn
And I stand, I stand back
'Cause I want to watch it burn

Just before you fall asleep
That is where you wanna be
Just before you fall asleep
That is where you wanna be

And I stand, I stand back
'Cause I want to watch it burn
And I stand, I stand back
'Cause I want to watch it burn

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song-
    this one line

    "Just before you fall asleep
    That is where you wanna be
    Just before you fall asleep
    That is where you wanna be"

    christ,it's pure opiate poetry.
    Love it.

    General CommentNot sure but I thought this is what Tad says:

    First verse:
    Take the pain
    Ignorant jerk

    Second verse:
    [Brass made in oil
    No longer mold]
    And all that time
    Nothing grew
    I watched it grow
    This crooked tree
    The crooked branch
    From which you swing
