R_2: About These Opiates


ABOUT THESE OPIATES

Have I told you lately
that I'm the one
who gets his favors done
by people of the city?
Then I get cold and numb
Have I told you lately
There's no way to get enough?

History will make amends
When you're on the right medicine

Have I told you lately
It's understood
that I'm no good?
People of the city
They follow the run
Have I told you lately
who's havin' fun?

They come and meet me at weekends
with a cross and coffee
Oh, some friends

Have I told you lately
all bets are off
The widow has won
People of the city
They keep walking on
Have I told you lately
my mind's made up?

No more burning claws around the feet
No more turning nails for skin to meet

Have I told you lately about the pain
that'll ruin these opiates again?
Have I told you lately
I'm gone insane
That'll ruin these opiates
That'll ruin these opiates
That'll ruin these opiates again
