lyrics

[Intro: Lou Gehrig]
"Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth"

[Verse 1]
Get that money out of here
It was sent by a man with blood on his hands
Get that money out of here
It was sent by a man with blood on his hands
And his ears have heard that sound before
Of a man's dead weight collapsing on the floor
Get that money out of here or I'm gone

[Chorus]
I've been waiting in this place for so long, is it me?
Does it get hotter all the time?
I've been alone for all these years finally I'm complete
This shit gets better all the time

[Bridge 1]
I never told you
You found out on your own

[Verse 2]
I'm running out of eyes to turn blind
I'm running out of things that could relax my worried mind
Try and take a drive around the lake, you said
"I didn't tow the boat, I got caught up in its wake"
Get that money out of here
It was sent by a man with blood on his hands
Get that money out of here or I'm gone

[Chorus]
I've been waiting in this place for so long, is it me?
Does it get hotter all the time?
I've been alone for all these years finally I'm complete
This shit gets better all the time

[Bridge 2]
No I don't think
Because it hurts my head
So I'll leave this one up to you
Don't make me blink
Don't make me move a muscle
I'm dead weight as far as you're concerned
Baby you don't have the eyes to see
Imagination left to carry me
And it breaks you, takes you and it's time to say goodbye

[Chorus]
I've been waiting in this place for so long, is it me?
Does it get hotter all the time?
I've been alone for all these years finally I'm complete
This shit gets better all the time
This shit gets better all the time
This shit gets better all the time
And if it don't then I'm gone

[Outro: Lou Gehrig]
"And I might have been given a bad break, but I've got an awful lot to live for, thank you"
