Oh shut your mouth. You always argue. You’re always pissing on my little sugar castles Low self esteem makes you defensive And maybe that’s the reason that you’ll never be happy Go get a better job. Improve your situation. Don’t wait for someone else to come along and do it for you. Your complacency doesn’t make things any better. You’ll be waiting around when your house burns down around you Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and... Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and... Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and go home now. Oh shut your mouth. You always argue. You’re always pissing on my little sugar castles Low self esteem makes you defensive And maybe that’s the reason that you’ll never be happy What are you waiting for? All of the cows to come home? They’ve got better things to do. Can the same be said for you? The pickings are getting slim. You’re not getting any younger. Where did you go wrong? Maybe your mother dropped you. Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and... Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and... Take your ball and go home. Take your ball and go home now. Oh shut your mouth. You always argue. You’re always pissing on my little sugar castles Low self esteem makes you defensive And maybe that’s the reason that you’ll never be happy Oh shut your mouth. You always argue. You’re always stomping on my little sugar castles Low self esteem makes you defensive And maybe that’s the reason that you’ll never be happy You’ll never be happy (X 4)

I’m only counting tiles. I’m only counting tiles, what’s the rush? I gotta walk four miles. I gotta walk four miles through the brush Gotta change my station. Gotta change my pay situation Its time to think of pensions. Its time to think of hypertension. Bananas, apples, and oranges You think they’re thick on the ground Give us that we don’t have by the pound Just give us that by the pound Get your own ass through, get your own ass through And don’t expect anybody to put up with your incompetence And I promise you - being honest, too Just automate, uncomplicate your processes I’m gonna lick that worry, lick that worry I’m gonna bleed black on it, bleed black on it I’m gonna bring back money, bring back money I’m gonna lean back on it, lean back on it I’m gonna lick that worry, lick that worry I’m gonna bleed black on it, bleed black on it Bananas, apples, and oranges You think they’re thick on the ground Give us that we don’t have by the pound Just give us that by the pound

From the Cascades to the Everglades From the Cascades to the Everglades From the Mojave to the Adirondacks- Choose a location where we'll never go back. Southern California isn't so far away- Leaving today... From the Cascades to the Everglades From the Cascades to the Everglades Heard you're in McKeesport, living in some shotgun shack You took a powder and you never looked back Will you get better? Will you come back to stay? Come back today... From the Cascades to the Everglades From the Cascades to the Everglades

45 Steps 03:44
Up 45 steps to my front door Sometimes I get tired I'm on the top floor in the place where I live There's nobody higher Buildings harbor reputations Until there's a buyer Here up on my elevation There's nobody higher The heat all rises to the place that I sleep Sometimes I perspire The chimneys are sealed in the place where I live We never start fires Birds make nests above my head They cry out in ire This is all I can afford Until I retire VOICE 01 Up 45 steps to my front door. People don't come over 'cause the steps are a chore In the place where I live, there's nobody higher I wonder if we'd get out if there was a fire VOICE 01 Only 45 steps though it seems there are more In the morning the landlord will knock on the door Stark white walls that I can't paint When you reach the top you are ready to faint VOICE 02 Buildings harbor reputations Until there's a buyer Here up on my elevation There's nobody higher VOICE 01 The plumbing needs fixed, you can't take a shower Water closet's been running for over an hour If I told you I was happy, you'd know I was lying The radiator sounds like somebody's dying VOICE 02 Birds make nests above my head They cry out in ire This is all I can afford Until I retire BOTH This used to be a crack house in a past incarnation Now the only crack is in the foundation I hear my neighbors move around my home At least I know that I'm not alone
