living in cynical hills
dying down in cliche canyon
funny locusts are fighting
over tiny little misunderstandings
it's not funny that you used my name
she knew you'd get another prescription
living in hysterical hills
dying down in cliche canyon

getting out of the canyon
driving to the euphoric heights
they throw such killer parties
everyone gets pretty nice
people start touching people
people that they don't even like

we get out the canyon
we'll be hiking to the euphoric heights
we're going on a hike
we're trying to reach the peak of the euphoric heights and that's right
we do it almost every night

we come out from the mountain
with a fond farewell from out hosts
they throw such killer parties
everybody gets pretty close
i only know three sure things
the father son and holy ghost
we look off of the mountain
at the bloodshed down below (you know there's bloodshed down below)

we come into the prairie
like lazy laying out in the heat
a couple motels and a couple saloons
thinking we need a couple weeks off
i saw a small town parade and the lead majorette made me feel all weak in the knees
hot child in the city in the middle of the prairie waving out in the heat

waving out in the heat
because you can't get to heaven from down drinking
you get tired when you're halfway up the mount

we're going on a hike
we're trying to reach the peak of the Euphoric Heights and that's right
we do it almost every night

when we get off everything's soft
everything is just kinda floating
everything is sparkling and everything is soft
everything is just kinda floating
when we get off everything's soft
everything is just kinda floating
everything is sparkling and everything is soft
everything is just kinda floating
when we get off everything's soft
everything is just kinda floating
everything is sparkling and everything is soft
everything is just kinda floating

we were hanging at a rock and roll club
it was painted just like hell
the bar was plywood painted black
they had skull marks up on the shelves
they throw such killer parties
but some nights you don't feel so well
but you shouldn't be the singer in a be-yourself band if you don't want to be yourself

    General CommentIt's "you can't get to heaven from down Cliche Canyon."

    It sounds nothing like "you can't get to heaven from down drinking"
