  • Let's get on with the business.
    I'm really sorry about that prick in the parking lot.
    I wanted this to be our year.
    But they cut off supplies and they sent over some guys.
    And those guys they made it perfectly clear.
    I know I made them a promise but those are just words
    And words can get weird.
    I think they made themselves perfectly clear.

    Blood on the carpet
    Mud on the mattress
    Waking up with that American sadness.
    Dead receptors.
    Body limitations.
    Weak handshakes and great expectations.
    Bountiful chemicals
    Beautiful kitchens.
    So many choices
    Decisions, decisions.
    I said a couple things that probably weren't technically true.

    They disconnected the phone last week.
    That's how we lost the connection
    So we went down to the taverns
    And tried to make an impression.
    I know I made them a promise but those are just words.
    And words can get weird.
    I think they made themselves perfectly clear.

    Blood on the carpet.
    Mud on the mattress.
    Waking up with that American sadness
    Afternoon matinee.
    Midnight madness.
    Come on everybody, let's get on with the business.
    Pledge of allegiance.
    War of attrition.
    So many choices
    Decisions, decisions.
    I said a couple things that probably weren't technically true.
    Conventional wisdom says we should probably cruise.

    We should probably cruise.

    Blood on the carpet
    Mud on the mattress
    Waking up with that American sadness.
    Chemistry, currency
    Plastic and magic.
    Everybody rise, we're an American business.
    Great expectations.
    La fitness.
    So many choices.
    Decisions, decisions.
    I said a couple things that probably weren't technically true.
    I saw that whole crew on the news.
    We should probably cruise dude.

    Now all our friends are acting
    Sketchy and lifeless.
    Waking up with that American sadness.
    Dead receptors.
    Body limitations.
    Weak handshakes and great expectations.
    Chemistry, currency
    Plastic and magic.
    Come on everybody, let's get on with the business.
    I said a couple things that probably weren't technically true. Publisher: RESERVOIR MEDIA MANAGEMENT INC
