In a car I am driving
The cops bear down
And in my mind, I am thinking
Face of the clown
And in the morning I wake up
Breath, "Oh, why?"
Because it's part of the program
Prepare to die

And in our day, the perfect routine
Something safe and something clean
And on our minds, that same old line
"Prepare to die"
And in this work, I am working
The 9 to 5
And I think to myself
"Will I get out alive?"

Sick or better
Poor ghost man
(?)
I said, "Now, where do I begin?"

I've heard it said
That a lounge singer
Dies some way
I've heard it said
That a lover
Leave you yesterday
I've heard it said
"Just one more to take"

I've heard it said
Lounge singer sings
On the subway
Sings about you and me
On the subway
"Just one more pill to take," he says
Don't leave me

Tie you to my legs
And run around
And tie passion to your face
Don't let me down
And tie your mother to heart
"Don't leave me," you say
Die yesterday
Don't leave me

In a car, we are driving
The cops bear down
And in our mind, we are laughing
Face of the clown

Sick or better
Poor ghost man
(?)
I said, "Now, where do we begin?"

Lounge singer dies
(Lounge singer dies)
On the subway
Sings about you and me
(On the subway)
Oh, someway
Just one more pill to take
(Travel through, you say, you say)
Burning, hey
