jesus...give it a minute would ya?

lyrics

clever is the lie

pony up some gratitude and let death come traipsing in all dressed in white
"get a hold of yourself kid, i was trying to make you sad, now get it right"
dance a little closer and sigh a little sigh
sever all the ties, the secret word is blood and you are wasting it
but clever is the lie that love is a carnival ride
everything is fine, well once we figure out how we can pay for this
because these are the last rites
cousins huddle all dressed in black, take a healthy swig and be mindful of the game
slipping out for a smoke out back where the talk of pale and pallor skin is grave
dance a little closer and sigh a little sigh
put on your black tie, everyone's expecting you to say something
but clever is the lie that funerals are just for the liers
everything aligns once we finally give this eulogy a twist
because these are the last rites
pennies for your eyes so you can see how you get free
down in this hole that someone else finally dug me
dance a little close and sigh a little sigh
sever all the ties, the secret word is blood and you are wasting it
but clever is the lie that love is a carnival ride
everything is fine, well once we figure out how we can pay for this
these are the last rites
