lyrics

Is it human nature to indulge in chemistry
and do falling apples fall far from trees
I've seen people justify about everything
from bombing buildings to finding veins
do you prosper most in cities or towns
can you turn a trick to avoid a frown
well while I'm young my short comings seem
to justify an aspirational dream

Just one more beer, one more cigarette
and nine more dollars and eighty one cents
short term goals seem to fall short
consequentially paid with passing time

One day I'll never, some day I will
contradict myself with placebo pills
mathematically proven, psychologically backed
but there's no excuse when common sense cracks
I'll point a finger and close my eyes
drink down the shame, exhale the lies
be strong my child, maintain your gaze
there's no fucking cheese at the end of this maze

Just one more beer, one more cigarette
and nine more dollars and eighty one cents
short term goals seem to fall short
consequentially paid with passing time

Is it my head that's splitting from dehydration
or lack of self will in a material nation
will I ever commit to the things I say
or get buried with em' in the fucking grave
We want this, we want that but there's never a cap
I know we're not alone we all suffer the same
but maybe one day it will all transpire
let's throw some gas on the proverbial fire
we'll watch it burn and when morning comes
we won't just lay around

Just one more beer, one more cigarette
and nine more dollars and eighty one cents
short term goals seem to fall short
consequentially paid with passing time
