lyrics

You Owe Me
Inquire about my whereabouts
Try to escape this haunted house
Get you and me to safer ground
And in my dream we laugh about

The word to which she’s so devout
Without regard to her mouth
The venom she might slowly leak
And once it’s leaked we’ll call the police
And all the venom that’s released
Won’t be cleaned up even by the priest
Just one more contradiction please
This one’s by far not the least

And you owe me the next round
Pay your debt on your way out of town
Pay up

There’s a monster on my case
Not Superman or Dr. Dre
Could save his victims from their fate
I’m trying hard to concentrate
But when I see his ugly face
I lose my cotton pickin’ place
No one could save me
Not even you baby
You won’t get lucky if you don’t hang around
You think miracles just grow on clouds
Keep your head up get it off the ground
You could pretend you’re flyin’ if you don’t look down

And you owe me stop actin’ so proud
Pay your debt then get out of my house
Pay up

Well, I been makin’ the rounds of the inhospitable grounds
I can see that you’ve found your most expensive night gown everyone agrees
You owe me for cryin’ out loud
Come on and pay up
And you owe me the next round
Pay your debt on your way out of town
And you owe me stop actin’ so proud
Pay your debt then get out of my house

You owe me for cryin’ out loud. Pay up.

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
