No more simply sordid thoughts
And photographs of God knows what
I'm searching for a higher purpose

I've gotta secret, you see
It only concerns you and me
It only concerns you and me
It only concerns you and me

And if I fall, you catch me
It's not a reflex
You catch me
And all the drinks you bought
I wish they were

Hunting for gold
With my living plumb-line
Suture your soul
A snake through a skull's eye
