No matter how
We try and try
No matter what
Minutes still fly by

We try so hard
Ain't worth a dime
There's no escape
From the smell of time

Smell of Time
(The Smell of Time)
The Smell of Time

Bingo baby you just won a Prius
Would you mind filling out the questionnaire?
Someone goes on a fishing trip
Your life savings vaporise into thin air

Masturbation for dummies
Carrot lover or carnivore
The political agenda
Is thrown out the mahogany door

No matter how
We try and try
No matter what
Minutes still fly by

We try so hard
Ain't worth a dime
There's no escape
From the smell of time

Smell of Time
(The Smell of Time)
The Smell of Time

Everyone displaces you in the waiting line
And spanking that monkey is such a drag
You can't bring toothpaste on a plane
But we'll seal your liquor in a special plastic bag

Sure the furniture's cheap
But someone always has to pay
A messiah complex the size of a T-Rex can be yours to own today
A messiah complex the size of a T-Rex can be yours to own today

*something* and assholes
Take the exist to the left
That console gives you arthritis
So no more grand auto theft

Climate changes and terrorist threats have become part of everyday life
Mow the lawn at any cost while your brother is banging your wife

No matter how
We try and try
No matter what
Minutes still fly by

We try so hard
Ain't worth a dime
There's no escape
From the smell of time

Smell of Time
(The Smell of Time)
The Smell of Time
(Smell it!)
