I am alive but in steady decline
I am conspicuous in more ways than one
And if you pick at the flesh from these aging bones
You see I'm not senseless
I discovered it's easy to indulge those who like to pretend

I've liked toys with the lost and the lonely
I've been discreet just to keep the peace
It's all just a game that you have to play to avoid the muscle fractures
And there's never been any cause for alarm or disdain
Since I've discovered it's easy to indulge those who like to pretend

When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
That you have

I've had to compete with the street league (?)
I've gotten down with the hounds in this sketchy little town
All in the name of financial gain, it's a good thing I'm eager to please
If there's a lesson to be learned, I'm dealing with the strange
I discovered it's easy to indulge those who like to pretend
And take chances

When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
That you have

So let's just hope my appetite will (?)
To have come this far on a whim must be some kind of small miracle
A miracle

When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
When you got hooks for hands
The more good fortune that you have
That you have
