Put Him Under

lyrics

Chillin' in a glastnost glass house, Lenny, and your lease is running out
Irena's not square but she sees the place sunnier without you lying about

Aren't you tired, aren't you cold?
Don't you know you're getting old?
Are they still afraid of you?
Do they dream of what you'll do?
Now you're chalky and you're white
And your not a happy sight to see...

Put him under, dig him up
Tie him to a Jimmy truck
What a drag it'd be to keep him around

Rob and plunder, do your worst
Don't waste your rubles on a hearse
Anything less and it might not keep him down

Easy to remember, tricky to forget about the party where you killed the buzz
Irena gets red when she hears those people turn their backs on the facts because

They're so tired, they're so cold
Don't they know they're getting old?
Are they still afraid of you?
Do they dream of what you'll do?
You've been worshipped long enough
The decision isn't tough for me...

Put him under, dig him up
Tie him to a Jimmy truck
What a drag it'd be to keep him around

Rob and plunder, do your worst
Don't waste your Stoli on a hearse
Anything less and it might not keep him down

Why do you keep asking for it?
Do you need a god so bad that you would let him pound you for it?
Why won't you ditch the old hat?

Are you tired, are you old?
Do you know you're getting cold?
Are you still afraid of you?
Do you dream of what you'll do?
You can suffer, you can give
But the only way to live is free
