lyrics

buy me money, buy me hard cash
buy me bills and stocks and funds
and throw some pennies in my bank
you’re hip enough to pay
to square what’s already there
what good is it having millions
if you ain’t got few to spare

every solid gold throne
is just a glorified folding chair
sit down on your ass
and say your evening prayers:
all the pass codes to all of your accounts
a cherry on top of the sundae
a hail mary to large amounts

buy me some possibilities
some kind of stability
buy me some juicy guarantees
sweet, sweet lifetime warranties
make use of your twisted priorities
that are questionable, morally
all on your authority
honey, more importantly
i’m horrible company
but out the door if you just pay me.

buy me things, buy me diamond rings
they’re a decent enough investment
stop asking all these questions
put the house in my name
hand over any of the porsches
to me they’re really all the same
it goes up in flames
it goes up in smoke
if you try to buy my silence
honey, i hope you choke
give me the keys to the vault
i got skeletons in the closet
your secrets’ barely decomposed

it’s in the floors, it’s in the ceiling,
they’re all lying to you
if they say that i am stealing
come on, come on.

buy me some possibilities
some kind of stability
buy me some juicy guarantees
sweet, sweet lifetime warranties
make use of your twisted priorities
that are questionable, morally
all on your authority
honey, more importantly
i’m horrible company
but out the door if you just pay me.
