You couldn't tell them anything
They lived hard and they died hard
On all fours for everything
They kissed the ass that was presented
The bluebell flower or the biplane
Gold-plate the whores and keep the change

Creeping toward the end
Waiting on my man
All I can do now is what I do best
And that's taketh away

Get yourself a great big circle of friends
Chrome spinners will still get the ladies
I can't even remember way back when, no
That's just the fluffy steamy window, baby

Creeping toward the end
Waiting on my man
All I can do now is what I do best
And that's taketh away

Set your own speed, man
Drive like you vanish
Sometimes you can't get around
And that's when you smash smash smash

Set your own speed, man
Drive like you vanish
Sometimes you can't get around
And that's when you smash smash smash smash

Here comes Jesus Christ again
He's got that love of nothing
that we wish we all had
He was so cool when he first came around
Now all that love my brother shit
Just makes me mad mad mad mad

Creeping toward the end
Waiting on my man
All I can do now is what I do best
And that's taketh away

Set your own speed, man
Drive like you vanish
Sometimes you can't get around
And that's when you smash smash smash smash

Set your own speed, man
Drive like you vanish
Sometimes you can't get around
And that's when you smash

    General CommentI'm hearing "plucky" instead of "fluffy", but neither word makes obvious sense. Great song, thanks for posting the lyrics.
