lyrics

a man
i work beside
just raised a knife
to another man
some people shouldn't go to parties
some people shouldn't drink moonshine at parties
no, i never knew him
but the sun drives us wild sometimes

paint dries
as life whirls
passing by
blurring mind highway
under the summer sky

and it's always warm outside
for a guy carrying a knife

they say
a cigarette a day
keeps the doctor away
so they say
i'd like to take a woman
no particular woman
on a vacation

my mustache
it laughs
as time passes
by wondering why
is it so so grey

i think that
that i'd rather be a man
like you see
on the television screen
never really working

and it's always warm outside
for a guy carrying such strife

maybe its all this smog
pulling nails for my thumbs
that's got me in this bog
the receptors in my brain
talk like spiny lizards
doing pushups
just because

i think that
i'd like to be a man
like a character you see
on the television screen
never really working
