lyrics

This simple kind of life
Take not for granted
You can do with it what you like
As is your habit

Sell you soul
Or trade your wife
Turn the screw or twist the knife
Well come on, let's have it

One foot in, one foot out
One foot firmly in your mouth
You talkin' to me?
I'm talkin' to you
We can keep talkin' till we're blue

This silent beam of light
Is not so magic
Though only seen at night
There's one advantage

Watch the galaxies explode
Tell the children they'll get old
That's right, God damn it

One foot in, one foot out
One foot firmly in your mouth
You talkin' to me?
I'm talkin' to you
We can keep talkin' till we're blue

This stupid little life
Is not so tragic
Though we'll never get out alive
It's one rich pageant

Tell the author of the sun
To construct another one
Let's get right to it

One foot in, one foot out
One foot firmly in your mouth
You talkin' to me?
I'm talkin' to you
We can keep talkin' till we're blue
