i don't want you to have my kids i'm staying out of the family biz i just want you to be my girl, 'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world driving again, 'cross hollywood and sunset i'm on my way to fall in love i'm through with thinking 'bout wasted time and regret i guess i've finally had enough come on, and give it a whirl 'cause you remind me of an east side girl i don't want you to have my kids i'm staying out of the family biz i just want you to be my girl, 'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world now the light is gradually fading and nobody's ready for the dark and every heart is gracefully degrading while we all grow farther apart so come on, and give it a whirl 'cause you remind me of an east side girl i don't want you to have my kids i'm staying out of the family biz i just want you to be my girl, 'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world they say there's somebody for everyone but i know that's not true girl, you remind me of a certain someone on gateway avenue so come on, and give it a whirl 'cause you remind me of an east side girl i don't want you to have my kids i'm staying out of the family biz i just want you to be my girl, 'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world

sins of a father scattered ash shed a dollar in the fire down the drain take a sip of the water choke it down choke it past your collar what’s your poison? what’s your pain? save me somehow (you’re my one distraction) where are we now? (back where we began) oh can’t you save me somehow (there’s no past, no future) i’ll cry for now i’ll scream on… lambs to the slaughter all your sons, all your daughters while you’re staring into space race… race… race… to the center you heretic you dissenter only 50 years too late save me somehow (you’re my one distraction) where are we now? (back where we began) oh can’t you save me somehow (there’s no past, no future) i’ll cry for now i’ll scream on… roll in the machines snd hook me to the screens i promise I’ll be good just like a good girl should i’ll leave it to the bloated boys to kill that fucking noise with all their bloody toys save me somehow (you’re my one distraction) where are we now? (back where we began) oh can’t you save me somehow (there’s no past, no future) i’ll cry for now i’ll scream on…
