  1. I was in heaven
    I was in hell
    Believe in neither
    But fear them as well
    This one's a doctor
    This one's a lawyer
    This one's a cash fiend
    taking your money
    Back of the metro
    Ride on the greyhound
    Drunk on the Amtrak
    Please shut up
    He was a talker
    Talking about TV
    Please shut up
    This one's a crazer
    Daydreaming disaster
    The origin of junk food
    Rutting through garbage
    Tasty but worthless
    Dogs eat their own shit
    We're doing the cockroach yeah
    Doin the cockroach yeah
    Doin the cockroach yeah (alright, not bad) (x3)
    One year
    Twenty years
    Forty years
    Fifty years
    Down the road in your life
    You'll look in the mirror
    And say, "My parents are still alive."
    You move your mouth
    You shake your tongue
    You vibrate my eardrums
    You're saying words
    But you know I ain't listening
    You're walking down the street
    Your face
    Your lips
    Your hips
    Your eyes
    They meet
    You're not hungry though
    Well late last winter
    Down below the equator
    They had a summer that would make you blister
    Oh my mind is all made up
    So I'll have to sleep in it (x3)
