Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck

Album: Cleansing (1994)
Charted: 80
  • Nothing breeds more contempt for this world
    Than memories now formed
    Every moment a new seed
    Is grown to no reason the trouble unfolds

    For the trials of today
    I'm no jury really don't care how you feel
    The pleasant notion of miraculous change
    Drifts into multiple jeers, jeers, jeers

    You want the good life, you break your back
    You snap your fingers, you snap your neck

    Seconds drip through my hands
    Washed of moments unborn
    All the spaces between bleed
    A tribute to a sacrament never exposed

    A message to the forces
    I've no pity don't know how thankful to feel
    Expectations of my daily bread
    Gives me the hunger to steal

    You want the good life, you break your back
    You snap your fingers, you snap your neck
    You want the good life, you break your back
    You snap your fingers, you snap your neck

    You want the good life, you break your back
    You snap your fingers, you snap your neck
    You want the good life, you break your back
    You snap your fingers, you snap your neck

    Snap your fingers, snap your neck
    Snap your fingers, snap your neck
    Snap your fingers, snap your neck
    Snap your fingers, snap your neck Writer/s: TED PARSONS, THOMAS VICTOR
