lyrics

The death wish sits upon my chest
It's warm and wet a feathered hell
It keeps me safe from being too alive

Without it I would fall apart
I'd have no skin out in the wind
The scraping nerve the rawness of a heart

My right hand mind's in love with you
My left hand mind's already gone
To see my old Chicago home again

To take that road to nothingness
Two dollars gets me on the train
And I will never be hungry again

Little man will have his way
Couches live his life away
Food and bed are not his own
Happy with his telephone

Things are better half-awake
Still get sunsets at the lake
Still get sex and lovers too
If you get them to love you

Please sir I surrender
Please sir I surrender
