lyrics

OLD GOLDEN

flying like a bat out of hell
crying like a two-hearted fool
croaking like a broke speak & spell
I am choking on an old golden rule

pretty lady don't keep me waiting
I’m a regular here but i've still got the fear
I think it's worse now that I have found myself
come on let's drink to our health!

shrieking baby, you've got your whole life to go crazy
you've no way of knowing how good you have it
you just grab and forget
while your parents consume and regret
ruin and wreck!

if I knew the way to your house
I would draw a map on my hand
there's no way this stain will come out
there's no shame can contain my demand

humble urchin, someday you will slay with your beauty
don't get snooty up there on top of the world
remember the homely girls
all the lonely, interned, uninsured

humble servant your master is lurking
pretend you don't see him
and that you don't know how hard it would be to be him
go away go away!
serve us some other day, go away!

there are backwards black holes in the ocean floor
there are days when the pain gets inflamed
and immaculate rage gets engorged
there are days when the flames reach the sky
we don't even ask why
we don't even ask why

flying like a bat out of hell
crying like a two-hearted fool
croaking like a broke speak & spell
I am choking on an old golden rule
I am broken like an old golden rule
