lyrics

I could never find a pill box big enough
to hold the cancer in my pen
you’ll have to take it twice a day

he’ll present a glass of water, bottoms up
find the product as the cells still multiply-
from end to end they’re growin’ still

when the plaintiff raises her glass to the
melting, wax encrusted lava lamp
please not to heat that on the stove

as the jury argues further between
suicide and murder cause the later
it takes two, so hold my hand

I’m just waiting to die
we’re all waiting to die
in between cotton filler that we
use to stuff our lives
we’re just waiting to die
we’re all waiting to die
so make some more excuses
keep it grounded, never try

can you hear the pitter patter of the
dream-eaters attacking once again
who left the lights on in the hall?

it wasn’t his decision, this is not the
thing he wanted had the poison done it’s job
we’d both be skippin’ stones in Beirut

now the crowd has an addiction, where had
Jane left all her needles in the drawer
and put her menthols in my hand

when the drugs, they taste like candy
and your dog is sippin’ brandy, then Beethoven
best roll over one more time.

Chorus

Let it see let it see
Let us see let us see
I don’t buy your words of wisdom
So let us see, let us see
Let us see, let us see
Let us see, let us see
I’ll write my own damn answer
just let us see
