lyrics

She said if there is a God and he has a middle name,
the initial surely would begin with the letter A.
Then, I said I thought that she was very pretty.
But she said, “stop stalking me, or else I will call the police.”

I know that there is no long-term potential.
I know that there is no one out there just waiting for me.
I know that there is nothing to do but keep on thinking.
I know that there is nothing to do but keep on drinking.
I know that there is no Jesus Christ.
I know that there is no paradise.

Every night I pray to God so He can get me off this rock
but all I get are dogs and cops and notes saying “please won’t you fuck off.”
Janitor in the monastery is such a good way to make money,
but you know, at the end of the day you’ll be in exactly the same place.

I know that there is no career potential.
I know that there is no one out there just waiting for me.
I know that there is nothing to do but keep on thinking.
I know that there is nothing to do but keep on drinking.
I know that there is no Jesus Christ.
I know that there is no paradise.

Well, here’s a lesson I’ve learned well – if you would like, I can tell.
Never speak of what you feel, or else they’ll put you in jail.
Honesty ain’t meant to be more than an ad on TV.
And if I tell you I’m in love, you will crush me like a bug.
If I tell you I’m in love, you will crush me like a bug.
If I tell you I’m in love, you will crush me like a bug.
