lyrics

I'M TRYING TO MAKE CHOICES
BETWEEN TWO BAD OPTIONS
TO BEAT THE ODDS
INTO BLOODY SIXES
A HEALTHY DISTRUST
OF WHAT I SEE IN THE REARVIEW
KEEP THE SMOKE AND THE DUST
RIGHT WHERE I CAN SEE 'EM

LIKE A KNIFE
IN AN OLD WOUND
A SLUG SET STRAIGHT
IN IT'S SALT TOMB
LIKE A KNIFE

MY SMILE'S GONE GREY
COFFEE AND SMOKE
LATE NIGHT STAYS
ON HARDWOOD FLOORS
DISENCHANTED, DISILLUSIONED
THIS DISTILLATION OF WISH FULFILLMENT
DESENSITIZED BY STRANGE LIGHTS
AND PASSING COLLISIONS

IF IT COMES TO TRADING BLOWS
LET'S GO
OR DISAPPEAR INTO
SOME COMPLETE UKNOWN
MY SMILE'S GONE GREY
COFFEE AND SMOKE

LIKE A KNIFE
IN AN OLD WOUND
A SLUG SET STRAIGHT
IN ITS SALT TOMB
A NEW STRING SNAPS
IN AN OLD BOOT
A PECULIAR CRACK
IN YOUR NEW GOLD TOOTH
LIKE A KNIFE
IN
IN AN OLD WOUND

WE GO WALKING HAND IN HAND
STRAIGHT INTO THE SHARPENED KNIFE
ALL GOOD CHILDREN GO TO BED
THINKING THEY'LL SURVIVE THE NIGHT
WE GO WALKING HAND IN HAND
STRAIGHT INTO THE SHARPENED KNIFE
IF YOU WILL NOT THINK FOR YOURSELF
YOU HAD BETTER LEARN YOUR LINES
