about

A follow-up to the old Blender song “Sleep for Years.”

lyrics

Jo-jo double-crossed me he's no Valentine
He's no go-to man, he's no friend of mine
He took a package upstate on a Greyhound bus
He never tried to text me-he's not the one to trust

Undercarriage rattles like an SOB
I swear the draft in here will be the death of me
Jeremiah told me that it beats the bus
He pockets all your money—not the one to trust

But I'm no angel; my wings aren't made for flying
They're weighed down by gross appetites that's why your lies I'm buying
Like the View Motel vacancy light my memory's blinkin'
What's so wrong with foolin' yourself; foolin' hurts less than thinkin'

Shivers up my back and I can't shake them off
Get the double fries and the secret sauce
Meet me in the city at the lions' busts
Don't wait around for crumbs; you're not the one to trust

What's at stake? What's at stake?
I'll take what's real, I'll take what's fake
As long as it has got the taste of a good time and a fair shake

A kiss can drill a well so deep it taps into a geyser
A hand that's pressing into yours can release the "none's the wiser"
There's a package you hold that I seek: Contents Wondrous
Will you run the scissors through its hide
Are you the one to trust?

I dream of the City of Lights
I dream of the full feathered bed
I dream of the trouble free nights
Somebody take this knife from my head

Jo-jo double crossed me he's no Valentine
He's no go-to man, he's no friend of mine
He took a package upstate on a Greyhound bus
He never tried to text me--he's not the one to trust

What's at stake? What's at stake?
I'll take what's real, I'll take what's fake
As long as it has got the taste of a good time and a fair shake

A kiss can drill a well so deep it taps into a geyser
A hand that's pressing into yours can release the "none's the wiser"
There's a package you hold that I seek: Contents Wondrous
Will you run the scissors through its hide
Are you the one to trust?
