  • This is song two on the album
    This is the album right here
    Burn the album
    Tonight the city is full of morgues
    And all the toilets are overflowing
    There's shopping malls coming out of the walls
    As we walk out among the manure
    That's why
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    Give the finger to the rock 'n' roll singer
    As he's dancing upon your paycheck
    The sales climb high through the garbage-pail sky
    Like a giant dildo crushing the sun
    That's why
    I pay no mind
    Sleep in slime
    I just got signed
    So get out your lead-pipe pipe dreams
    Get out your ten-foot flags
    The insects are huge and the poison's all been used
    And the drugs won't kill your day job...honey
    That's why
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    That's why
    I pay no mind Writer/s: Beck Hansen
