"Boy With An Affliction" as written by and Mary Gryner....
City in the snow
Heart under siege
Boy with an affliction
I’m catching your disease
Ten more dead and we’re dulling songs for TV sets
If this is success I’m gonna let it be

One day
When I go like the morning moon
I’ll be wonderin’
If what I gave up was the truth

So don’t give me the line (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything

Lovers in the sun
And ink under the gun (under the gun)
Boy with an affliction
He thinks God's gonna come (God's gonna come)
The freezer’s in flight
And they're sendin’ bodies back home tonight (get on up)
The gold-digging day’s just begun (just begun)

Some day
When I’m reaching for repair
I might not be so lucky
To find my heart still beating there

So don’t give me the line (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything
Gotta live like kings

Don’t linger too close (too close)
‘Cause when the fever hits your soul (your soul)
and you are raging like the wind (and you are raging like the wind)
Everybody knows (knows)
What tragedy unfolds (unfolds)
When love for the money kills everything

So don’t give me the line (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
We gotta live like kings
Your love for the money's killing everything (boy with an affliction)
Gotta live like kings
