lyrics

Well if I mix that turpentine
with just a little bi of wine,
maybe I can see God before I die.
Just smoke them cigarettes
after the bleach done got them wet
and wait for the Devil to stop by.

Cause I like pain and I hate pleasure
except when they get together
that makes me smile when I cry.
Lookin' through these lazy eyes, can't see what I deny
go soak my soul, I love it when you lie.

Oh, there's a stone,
I push it while I roam
let go, gonna chase it down again.
Then sit alone, so happy here at home.
Oh Lord ain't never been such a fine old prison, yeah.

Life by numbers, so they say,
maybe I'll see you at the end of the day
cause I guess that I like pleasure
just as much as pain
sometimes its good to use an easy rhyme like rain
cause who doesn't love the rain?
But you get too much and it's just pleasure into pain.

Well, if I mix that turpentine with just a little bit of wine,
maybe I can see God before I die.
Just smoke them cigarettes after the bleach done got them wet and
wait for the devil to stop by.
Cause I love pain and I hate pleasure,
except when they get together,
that makes me smile when I cry.
All that blame comes down to whether
them things working good together
it's too much and finally I'll die.
Just like the rain,
oh, I'm falling down again,
maybe gone with the day.
I like the pain,
well we fight it wins again
Lord ain't never been such a fine, old prison, yeah,
Lord how I love this simple prison yeah....
End
