Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely...


we're the ones who you paid to see a piece of my soul for your money
and it's my job, to smile while pigs feast
swallows slop out of the head of a crooked priest

a monster you sell is things like hell
and they know not to ask, think or tell
bang them all like good boys and girls
and we'll feed the shit wish you only could tell
and I go...


Head first in the river.
Head first in the river.
Lost my breath in the river.
Head first in the...

Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

I forget your name.

what you believe they wanna know about me
I wear my lungs upon my sleeves
and that one there might as well be
fillin' his shot glass with gasoline

they made me live in the factory
where the made my friends and we worked for free
but that's alright, cause my soul i keep
and these bones are mere accidents.

Head first in the river.
Head first in the river.
Lost my breath in the river.
Head first in the...

Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

We weren't built to last this long.

Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to...
Yeah they love to.


Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.


Move it's what they say
sell them the bones that they love to hear break
I said move to another birth place
yours truly sincerely oh oh I forget your name.

    General CommentGreat song.

    except it's:
    "the mantra you sell, it stings like hell"

    "play in the mud like good boys and girls and we'll feed you the shit that we're sure we can sell"

    "would you believe they wanna know about me?"

    "they made me in the factory"

    swallow slop out of the "hand" not head.

    hahah, just check lowcountryawareness.com for lyrics. even though it's kind of hard to read some of it.
