The radio says
We gotta pay up by tonight
The radio says
We gotta pay up by tonight
It's a constant dribble,
A weeping sore
Death by a thousand little downers
I hear them all spilling
Out on the floor
Death by a thousand little downers

The operator says
Our call is important
The operator says
Our call is important
Well they'll find me swinging
From the menu tree
Death by a thousand little downers
And then I'll go play with the
Ghosts in the machine
Death by a thousand little downers

The co-sleeper says
May cause death or injury
The disclaimer says
May cause death or injury
Thanks for letting us
Know of the danger
Death by a thousand little downers
but why bring the fear
To the simple pleasures?
A thousand little downers

When you're poorly
I'll bring you flowers and grapes,
Flowers and grapes
When you're poorly
And eat them myself
One more little downer

The vacant lot says
Excellent retail opportunity
The vacant lot says
Excellent retail opportunity
But I can't help thinking of
Those broken dreams
Death by a thousand little downers
Her hand on his shoulder as
He stares at the screen
Death by a thousand little downers

I'll show you mine
If you show me yours
