lyrics

...And the song will start.
...And I got my heart.
...And I got my arms.
...And I got my legs.
...And I got this heart.
...And I got this heart.
...And I got this heart.
...And I got this.
Sometimes I try to paint the picture.
Sometimes, I swear, the picture paints me.
Sometimes I try to drink the tincture.
Sometimes, I swear, the tincture hates me.
I hate the starving artist bedlam.
Send all the writers to the mattresses.
How can they say they're not living the scam?
Between the writer's block, the news selling the shock, all you hear is "We're dead."
We're dead.
Sometimes I try to paint the picture.
Sometimes, I swear, the picture paints me.
Sometimes I try to drink the tincture.
Sometimes, I swear, the tincture hates me.
When I get drunk I lose my focus and I start writing Hocus Pocus.
How can I say I'm not living the scam?
Between the writer's block, my words selling the shock, all you hear is bullshit.
Bullshit.
Don't listen. Read between the lines.
