lyrics

I don't think it's depression
I'm just honest, feathered, gone
I got my work cut out
You got your work cut out

I ain't seen the sky in a few months
But I have been sober for a few days
Unless you count, well,
You can't count that drive down from Colorado
Through Utah
You know the beer there is a little weaker
Until you get down to Arizona
Did you hear? They don't like faggots there
Or black motherfuckers
They shot 'em dead
Faggot motherfucker
He painted his nails red
He can burn

Go to a town
From the highway by your house
Don't think about what you might do if you don't get this job
Giving money away to the things you thoughts you might get one day
But you didn't - you put it down on plastic
Put it down on plastic
You can cut your pretty powders with plastic

And fold your newspaper
There's not a goddamn thing you can do anyway
You know they're out on the streets
Oh, they're out on the streets
You know that black motherfucker is out on the streets
He ain't got your job because his name ain't right
My dad said he can't be trusted
And I'm white so I think maybe it isn't up to me

And I hate cops
But when I do, they don't kill me

But I sometimes wish they would kill me
Because you're all fake and you don't give a shit
Fuck you and your famous friends
And your voice ain't that good now anyway
If I'm honest you know
And have you cried listening to Lou Reed's Berlin?

Well I have
Well I have
Cause I left a piece of me up in Berghain
You know a straight motherfucker said my name
All these straight motherfuckers
All these straight motherfuckers
All these straight motherfuckers
All these straight motherfuckers

You know I just took your order
You could at least look me in the eye
You can say "hi" because I said, "hello"
I even smiled
I even smiled in the know
I am some other places I would like to go
I haven't called my mother in days
And my brother's been dead for years
And my dad and I are really starting to make some progress
But anyway would you like some fries and maybe a salad
And the juice bar is just across the street
It's just across the street
It's just across the street
You straight motherfucker
It's just across the street

My friends have been touring the world
Those straight motherfuckers
Their pictures doing things they wouldn't really ever do
Their pictures of doing things they really wouldn't ever do
Their pictures doing things they wouldn't really ever do
They are doing things they wouldn't really ever do
Doing things that straight motherfuckers do
Doing things that straight motherfuckers do
Doing things that straight motherfuckers
Don't be a straight motherfucker
Just be you
