Like hell I could tell that you played for keeps
Now I live on a boat that sits on a moat
On top of piss river, outside your castle
And when death comes 'round, we all sing, "Oh, what an asshole"
He stirs quite the fuss and he cause quite the hassle
We all buy black suits as our lives go on mute
And meet under the belfry to cry and say sorry
Mama, I’m scared
"I know you are, baby
I am scared, too"
You move, I move, you choose, I choose
And who, who, who? I beg like an owl
As I sit on my perch and I stare and I scowl
I know I left you, but I cannot forget you
Now I only know how to harm or upset you
See, I came for your love, but I stayed for your anger
And you rocked me, mama, like a babe in a manger
Mama, I'm angry
"I know you are, darling
But she's angry, too"
And oh my God
Mama, at who?
She’s angry at you"
So I just mumbled some names
I said, "I hope they're okay," then "amen"
They were the names of my family and friends
Oh, the planet's so lonely and the planet's so cold
And if I'm so lucky, I'll die when I'm old
I pray no disaster, no fire, no rain
And I pray that no devil gets inside my brain
As the world does its twirl ’tween the moon and the sun
Casting clock shadows beyond everyone
And the hours devour us
As I stare out my window, as I ride this bus
And man, it goes fast, and man, what a blur
But I’d ride it the same, oh, just as it were
It's that feeling in my stomach when the light was low
And I’d get warm in my chest when my heart would slow
And that feeling in my head when that music played
Get dizzy in my soul from the glad song they sang
What a dream to have ever felt the air so warm
What a dream to have even ever been born
Oh, mama, I love you
And oh my God
"Oh, baby, oh, darling
I love you, too
And I know that you know that I do"
So I got to running
But next time, I'll stay put
