lyrics

I've given so much more than I will ever take.
The pills I swallow are handshakes,
From forgotten friends and heart attacks.
The glasses I empty are pats on backs.
The cigarettes in the ashtray, burning.
The sink is full but the world keeps turning.
World on shoulders, heart on sleeve.
The little things that bother me.
Friday night, no sleep allowed.
Every silver linings got its cloud.
Said the joker to the thief;
"You're a junkie and a cheat"

This world tries to tear you apart.
We've worked out how to beat it.
Its easy. Easy.
Easy, easy, easy.

Avoid places you shouldn't go.
Steer clear of folks that you should know.
Sit back, relax and take it slow.
But all we know...
Is drinking 'till our legs go numb (We'll get a cab home...)
The walk of shame with the rising sun (...or take a stroll)
This is the art of dying young.
From the start perfect the art of dying young.

I've taken twice the falls that any one should take.
These cuts and bruises are exam grades.
I've fell out with those I should of always loved.
I'm sure we only ever fall out for the make up hugs.
The cigarettes in the ashtray burning,
mind is racing, stomach churning,
over thinking is wearing thin.
The little things still do me in.
Mondays comes, lost track of time.
I've ate your bread and necked your wine.
From the joker to the thief;
"You're a junkie, you're a cheat."

This world, it tries to tear you apart.
and I've worked out how to beat it.
Its easy. Easy.
Easy, easy, easy.

Avoid places you shouldn't go.
Steer clear of folks that you should know.
Sit back, relax and take it slow.
But all we know...
Is drinking 'till our legs go numb (We'll get a cab home...)
The walk of shame with the rising sun (...or take a stroll)
This is the art of dying young.
From the start perfect the art of dying young.

This world tries to tear you apart.
and I've worked out how to beat it.
Its easy.Easy.
I've got it down to a fine art.
For those hopeless souls and broken hearts.

Easy. Easy. Easy.

Avoid places you shouldn't go.
Steer clear of folks that you should know.
Sit back, relax and take it slow.
But all we know...
Is drinking 'till our legs go numb (We'll get a cab home...)
The walk of shame with the rising sun (...or take a stroll)
This is the art of dying young.
From the start perfect the art of dying young.

Underneath all the dirty guitars and drums, there lives a pop song. Skellums believe, that as long as you have a melody, you can get away with all sorts.
