We hadn't worked in a year
We prayed the checks would all clear
I got another eviction notice
You got a brilliant career

Have you heard enough or should I continue
I'm sure there's lots more to say
Like how when you were you were sweet and charming
Now you're like a landmine that need disarming

Congratulations on your great success
It's comforting to see you're still a mess
(I hope I didn't say that out loud)

You've got the thousand-yard stare
The world's your building and we're all tenants
It's like you're not even there
Suffering fool like a saint who's doing some kind of public penance

Sometimes you've got to get your shirtsleeves dirty
Sometimes you've got to wallow in the slime
That's just the price of doing business

I read your letter again
I still can't think of a proper comeback
I still bump into you now and then
I always seem to get knocked back on my ass by the impact

I don't expect you to confess to perfect murders
You're just not who you used to be I guess
But that's the price of doing business
