smoking out the back of the maternity
ash gets in my lungs but I’m learning
screams on the air just one last push
new stars heavenly squealing
granny’s in the kitchen with the steel brush
singing Dan Breen won it with a royal flush
doomsday’s coming on the big clock
bunkers on the internet are running our of stock
open up your mouth and two voices
sing out the song on the moonlight
death is a circle when divided by life
when it’s multiplied twice it makes a permanent night
Its hard not to believe the attic’s where its at
when you’re stuck down here in the cellar
Its hard not to believe in fairy tales
when in two minutes we’ll all be Cinderella
If you’re looking for your art it’s in your belly
If you’re looking for something heartfelt,
feel it with your heart.
frightened all the way to the hospital
Hanging on the words of doctor Rachel
hugging everybody in the science lab
felt so much love I couldn’t hold it all
come around the back and you don’t need to knock
we found the keys but we lost the lock
everyone of us in a deep state
looking at the time and knowing we are late
looking at the sky and running through the names
everybody up there waiting to explain
less than 2 minutes left
what will you do with them?
watch all the news with them?
finish up all the booze with them?
wear someone else’s shoes with them?
pay all your dues with them?
take one last cruise with them?
You’ve less than 2.
