Oh, I see a girl thats blue like the sea
when i go to sleep you know that she sees me, too
yeah, just standing around like the popular kids
hoping saint peter will let us in, too

"well," he says " if you value your life stay off the drugs
if you value the drugs stay off the map.
if you value maps you better travel, son.
if you dont want to travel then you better run"

ooh, yeah, mmm, oh

yeah, well I knew a king in his purple throne
oh, and he had some trouble so he's all alone now
well I used to bring him little presents from time to time
and hed sit me in his castle and hed pick my mind

he said, "if you value your heart, oh stay on the road.
if you value the road, oh stay on the top .
if you value the top, oh youre gonna suffer son.
and if you dont want to suffer, then you better run"

well i see my boss in his practical suit
ill toss him in the cellar wont give him no food
when anybody tries to tell him what to do he holds his breath until he turns blue

he says, "if you value your job, stay out of crime.
if you value the crime, stay out of doors.
if you value them doorsm you better lock em son.
and if you dont want to lock em, you better buy a gun"

(vocalizing)

yeah, well i saw a snake in an apple tree
you know i didnt trust a word that he hissed to me, no!
yeah, he said, "it must be gettin awful lonely tryin to save the world;
just buy a collared shirt and try and fuck some girls."
he said, "if you value your limbs, stay in the game.
if you value the game, stay in the style.
if you value that style, youre a sinkin son.
if you dont want to sink then you better run."

    General CommentThis song is about the fact that everything in life comes with something else. Sometimes we count on some things, but most of them we don't see coming and they are usually bad ones. It's just the matter of that is it THE thing we want worth suffering.
    ''Yeah, well i saw a snake in an apple tree
    you know i didnt trust a word that he hissed to me, no!'' If the thing is worth then no one can belittle it in your eyes, because it doesn't matter what other will say if it feels right. And if you are now questioning your THING it's probably not THE thing.. ''Then you better run.'' The point is if you are into something, give 100%. All the people are searching for their own thing but in the end, or begining hmm..., we are all the same in that way,
    ''yeah, just standing around like the popular kids
    hoping saint peter will let us in, too
    '', we are all the same in the eyes of God.
