Lyrics:
Like a snake in the desert, you can shed your skin
And you couldn't care less about a state I'm in
Everything's right 'til you discover it's wrong
And then you stomp your feet to a different song
There's a bluebird singing all the cardinal hymns
When no one's left you let the right one in
Freedom wants whatever freedom gets
He'd lay it down for the price of a cigarette
There's a crack in the ice
You're as subtle as a shotgun
Now you're exposed
Lying naked in the hot sun
Ah, let's call it a win
It's just a venial sin
You said you'd swallow a gun
When all the dyin' is done
Since he turned fourteen, he'd been putting it away
Got himself a one-way ticket for a penny a day
Worked a part-time job on the lower east side
Upper class dreams in a working-class mind
Let's make a move
Send 'im back to where he came from
Before he's too old
It's better in the long run
Ah, we'll call it a win
It's just a venial sin
You said you'd swallow a gun
When all the dyin' is done
It's just a venial sin
