I remember way back when,
way back when, times weren't this hard,
no they weren't this hard and every one had what you call a sane mind.
Roses are red, well, blood is too.
I found that out, when I needed you.
Cause remember that one time you promised me, yeah?! No wait, it was more than once, now wasn't it, ha! No just wait.
How many little promises, Precious little promises, those precious little promises that you have broken to me...
Where's your morals, lost with your mind, your head must be, where the sun don't shine, where's your morals, lost with your mind.
Hangin' on a rope as thin as you.
I want you, as you want me right now, that luxury life ain't for you any how.
I want you, as you want me, in black & white, oh can't ya' see.
Those blackened clouds that linger over you and me, are gonna kill us, can't you see.
Your love has infected me, like that big, bad disease, your love has affected me.
How many times ya' gonna nail me,
To the cross, with all those promises that you have broken to me

    General CommentAny relation to the band? Sure don't seem like it. Primus does mean "the first" in Latin, so maybe this is what it's about. The only reason I heard it was because I thought it had something to do with Primus the band.
