lyrics

Princess came to breakfast looking puffy from the Prednisone.
Someones little sister had me marching to the metronome.
The Maharaji is on the mountain with a megaphone.
Reaching for the secrets in the static on the stereo.

There's something funny about the place that all the money goes.
Coughing up the offering. And in between his toes.
Knew a couple kids from when I still went to shows.
All the little hornets forming swarms around the honeycomb.

Searching for a purpose or just something we can celebrate.
People can take advantage of confusion in the marketplace.
Hard to have much faith when they can't keep their story straight.

Came back from the mission and her hair was in her mouth again.
It's just another part of her don't wanna take the medicine.
She won't miss the city but she'll miss all her friends.
I said vice versa for me, man. Vice versa for me.

Searching for a purpose or just something we can celebrate.
People take advantage of confusion in the marketplace.
I'll distract the manager and you obscure the license plates.

Princess on the payphone with an angle on some Western states.
We can take advantage of confusion in the marketplace.
I don't want to dick around. I just want to devastate.

Scoping out some dynamite and seeing if it detonates.
People take advantage of confusion in the marketplace
You can turn the circles yeah and I can pull the parking brake.

Princess on the payphone with an angle on some Western states.
We can take advantage of confusion in the marketplace.
I don't want to dick around. I just want to devastate.
