LyricsEdit

I'm putting your patience to the test

I'm putting your body on the line, for less

And didn't you know there was a choice?

It's never yours but someone else's voice


Selling your body to the street

I'm selling your girlfriend's to the night, for cheap

Wearing a jacket made of meat

Sealing a letter made with horse's feet


And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey

Life in the shade

A violent crime

And that's the USA

Platinum's on the rise

Playboys in disguise

I'm just tryin' to find

A mountain I can climb

I'm putting your patience to the test

I'm putting your body on the line, for less

And didn't you know there was a choice?

It's never yours but someone else's voice


And now you've seen that...


Blondes turn to grey

Life in the shade

A violent crime

And that's the USA

Porn's on the rise

Psycho's in disguise

I'm just tryin' to find

A mountain I can climb

Darling

Ain't nobody gonna tell us

They're gonna be oh so jealous

We're gonna be oh so silent

They're gonna be stoned in silence


I didn't want to ask you baby,

I didn't want to have to ask anybody baby,

Is anyone asking maybe?

Can anyone even hear me/this shit?

Why are you waiting beyond the door?


Life turns to dust

And rain turns to rust

Gossip is a truth

And money pays for the lies we trust

Your love is a surprise

Homeless saints are in disguise

I'm just tryin' to find

A nice place for you and I
