take your mind off the money
it only makes things worse
it's just too slippery to last you
longer than the 1st

take your time but don't waste it
there's no shame in falling down
it's just the consequence of failure
so get up an stand you ground

and look around
there is no magic in the air
no lost and found
no silver cup no truth or dare
only now that we've found love
what are we gonna do with it

make your mind up this instant
no time to weigh the odds
there's too much accidental fitness
sickness in the yards

wake your line up in a sunrise
a catapult of lead
no simmering fortress for the headlines
an honest man is dead

the black veruza, short salty
bless her tricky heart
she caught the poacher's in the basket
the fingers in their game

and it's a shame
the roof is leaking like a well
it's still the same
a mind that rings clear as a bell
and pass the fame
you won't be needing it in hell
you'll fan the flames

and it's a gas
the fact police are taking names
and kicking ass
they want to beat you at your game
if they could ask
they'd be so surprised the holy size…. of your brain
