lyrics

lyrics:
better think about what you’re going to say now
wind them up til trouble comes
tell them that you’ve always won
get a thrill
and if they figure out you’ve put them on
well you’re made of clay
so we know you’ll find a shape to use
to come back anytime you want
to fill your heart

they said the job would sober you up
but you’ve gotten older without growing up
why stretch to reach when they’re right behind you?
they said the job would sober you up
but it’s not enough

and your memory is ripe
to mold into a little town to spend the night
you’re made of clay
so we know you’ll find a shape to use
to come back anytime you want
to fill your heart
there’s a featured part

they said the job would sober you up
you’ve gotten older without growing up
we stretch to leave, but we’re deep inside, too
and there’s no master plan
so you work on your sleight of hand
you’ll reach until they fight
there’s no aftershave that wipes away the stench that’s on you

so little down, so little fight
watch them spin in the room
like they know what you’re doing
they get a thrill
though they’ve figured out you’ve put them on
to make a name
they know they can find some ways to use
so come back anytime you want to fill your heart
there’s a featured part
in a show that ends with a shrug
nothing more
lo and behold
it’s about money
money is what you know
