Things are gonna get ugly, things are gonna get mean
Somehow i just don't care, somehow that's obscene
For a handwashin hermit who think he deserves it, a life solitary
This ain't such a bad ol' place to be
Yeh, but things gonna get messy, things gonna get mad
Like Bette Davis n Joan,
we should be left alone in our cushion laden pads
My peccadilloes are gonna get up yer nose,
but when we clear the casualties
This ain't such a bad ol' place to be
Couldn't say i'm the optimist
I see the crumbs, you see the crust
Prime for drippin that oil right down yer sleeve
You see the thistle i see the thorn
See the fight i see the scorn
We could meet on the edge, throw ourselves, in the deep
Wouldn't be such a bad ol' place to be
Things sure gonna get ugly
Things gonna get slipshod, things gonna get misplaced
We're gonna wake up in starts, remembering promises made
But when we survey the damage,and replace the sharp cutlery
This aint such a bad ol' place to be
The cupboards are bare, somethin livin in the sink
tragedy's stacked up, just beside the drinks
Prime for sluicing ouselves down to our knees
You see the thistle i see the thorn
See the fight i see the scorn
We could meet on the ledge, throw ourselves into the deep
Wouldn't be such a bad ol' place to be
Yeh but things sure gonna get ugly...
