Fine, I give up, the peppers also want to be part of this
Alice in Wonderland with a headache couldnt have started this much shit
Mad Hatters and rabbits aint the goddamn anti-dote
The anti-christ himself came from hell to tell the world he heard and it was dope
While portalling from one station to another is fine with some brothers
I'd rather keep a spaceship and go looking for some trouble
Damn straight, eletric cords and knives in the plug sockets
Shorten the wires so the wrenches dont hear nothing
And when writing words in novels and makin people follow
Start up a religion and make a nice great hollow
When the birds start to fly from their nests you've got them in your snare
Preaching about elephants and buildings because life left you there
Now Orwellian empires multiply with nationwide channels on the rise
When we listen to the TV do we listen with our eyes or do you focus on the skies
When the statueheads of liberty hit poverty, what can we believe?
Because sometimes needles in the backyard are the way of life and not just means to decieve

Always got my problems, always got my way
Is this the reason I wake up sad every day?
Always got my problems, always got my way
Now there is a price to be paid for all of our mistakes ..

Oh well, when a bunsen burner ignites and swallows a nation
Emphatic commands lost in a beauty queen while we change for elation
Changin stations, flipping from one to the next while hitting blocks
Connecting dots with our t-shirts all on back to front, we wrote
And we command, because the person with the first shot
Dont get the last laugh, and when the sky falls down with blood stained blisters
And every day gets thinner we will, fall down to the first in chain of command
And kiss his hand, while his skeletal control over a fattening world just means he flies first class
So giant beasts rumble and watch as the earth breaks and all hell tumbles out loose
Like spare change in a pocket that has the ability to change opinions of the youth
Ring Ring! Telephone calls while people get arrested and serve out their paroles
Neo standing on the ledge trying not to fall from a window, blood stains stain
Replicate the thoughts of an androdygenous robot, fame implicates fame
Indicates rain, and bad weather and even shittier behaviour, so when thinking
Do us all a favour, because we all know and we just dont want to disgrace her
Besmirch her good name, just another coalescance of blood sweat and ink again
While the postmen delivers his daily vitamins, brings the working class to its feet my friend
Because misery can be so refreshing, when it goes looking for company to adorn its walls
Got a star on the hollywood walk because it likes to talk so it won't return for more
Never again, it says and it believes, but those that acheive would just like to be free
And those that dont get Jack-Pipes and Whistles are dumb, but not as dumb as me


Always got my problems, always got my way
Is this the reason I wake up sad every day?
Always got my problems, always got my way
Now there is a price to be paid for all of our mistakes ..
