Lyrics

The sanest days are mad

Why don't you find out for yourself? Then you'll see the price very closely

Some men here They have a special interest in your career They wanna help you to grow And then siphon all your dough Why don't you find out for yourself? Then you'll see the glass Hidden in the grass

You'll never believe me, so Why don't you find out for yourself? Sick down to my heart That's just the way it goes

Some men here They know the full extent of your distress They kneel and pray and they say: "Long may it last" Why don't you find out for yourself? Then you'll see the glass Hidden in the grass

Bad scenes come and go For which you must allow Sick down to my heart That's just the way it goes

Don't rake up my mistakes I know exactly what they are And...what do YOU do? Well...you just SIT THERE!

I've been stabbed in the back So many, many times I don't have any skin But that's just the way it goes
