Something kind of hit me today
I looked at you and wondered
If you saw things my way
People will hold us to blame
It hit me today, it hit me today

We're taking it hard all the time
Why don't we pass it by?
Just reply, you've changed your mind
We're fighting with the eyes of the blind
Taking it hard, taking it hard

Yet now

We feel that we are paper
Choking on you nightly
They tell me
Son, we want you, be elusive, but don't walk far
For we're breaking in the new boys
Deceive your next of kin
For you're dancing where the dogs decay
Defecating ecstasy
You're just an ally of the leecher
Locator for the virgin King
But I love you in your fuck-me pumps
And your nimble dress that trails
Oh, dress yourself, my urchin one
For I hear them on the rails

Because of all we've seen
Because of all we've said

We are the dead

One thing kind of touched me today
I looked at you and counted all the times we had laid
Pressing our love through the night
Knowing it's right, knowing it's right

Now I'm hoping some one will care
Living on the breath of a hope to be shared
Trusting on the sons of our love
That someone will care, someone will care

But now

We're today's scrambled creatures
Locked in tomorrow's double feature
Heaven's on the pillow, it's silence competes with hell
It's a twenty-four hour service
Guaranteed to make you tell
And the streets are full of press men
Bent on getting hung and buried
And the legendary curtains
Are drawn 'round Baby Bankrupt
Who sucks you while you're sleeping
It's the theater of financiers
Count them, fifty 'round a table
White and dressed to kill
Oh, caress yourself, my juicy
For my hands have all but withered
O,h dress yourself my urchin one
For I hear them on the stairs

Because of all we've seen
Because of all we've said

We are the dead
We are the dead
We are the dead
