High On Life

lyrics

Order! This place is out of order!
Will someone stop the torture?
I’m wading through the murmurs and mountains of babble-on No more metaphors for the slick kids The cart-wheeling-roundhouse-kick kids I guess that “High on life” is some sick shit You’re going to overdose on back flips Order! I’d like to place an order!
They’re hiding in the corner, becoming an observer and they wanted to get down Prey on the youthful and guiltless Betray the faithful and helpless Prey on the youthful and guiltless Play on the fears of consequence We need light in the future and you’ve been blowing the candle out This life needs a suture and you’ve been pulling the stitches out I hear a lot of empty threats and I’m glad that you’ve been getting it out We need light in the future and you’ve been blowing the candle out The time has come for someone to put you in your place Now watch me fall from grace There’s no better man to get it done than me I’ll make you move like the ocean; make you part like the sea So hold your hands up high and let me hear you scream Go home or hold me up, it won’t change a thing Order! This place is out of order!
Will someone stop the torture?
I’m wading through the murmurs and the mountains of babble-on No more metaphors for the slick kids The mid-thirties-act-like-dick-kids Yeah “High on Life” is some sick shit But I’ll take a drink and real quick Well take a bandage, I’m pulling it off It won’t a moment from blowing me off Get me a drink…just to take the edge off Just pour me a drink or two We end up the same as you
