Paycheck (Demo, 1994)


Consumed by the one's who made her 
She's a faker, always let's me down 
Dressed up like a capital shaker 
Full of ganja drugs are not put down 
I'll have you're guts for garters 
Just for starters 
Don't you make me frown 
She could've been a nutter 
So I had to cut the mother down 

Slacker, wasting half is life on sniffing glue 
Now he's reformed, working for the red the 
White and blue 
Plain sailing, safe surfing 
Pocket full of back stab 

Confused by the one's who break her 
She's a faker, never makes a sound 
Undressed like a soul prayer 
Buying shares, pay her by the pound 
I'll have your face for breakfast 
I'm in excess, neither lost nor found 
She could've been a nutter 
So I had to cut the mother down 

Slacker, wasted half is life on speed 
Now he's reformed and working for the red 
The white and blue 
Plain sailing, shoulder pad 
Dental flossing, back stab 

Pay - check, Pay - check 

Save the best for later 
Be careful not to stain the sheets now 
You god damn liar 
Take me higher 

I never wanted the real thing

Slacker, wasted half is life on sniffing glue 
Now he's reformed, working for the red the 
White and blue 
Plain sailing, wife swapping 
Stool pigeon, back stab. 

Pay - check, Pay - check 

Save the best for later 
Be careful not to stain the sheets now 
You god damn liar 
Pants on fire 

Cold lining to pour on me 
But this one really takes the piss 
It's likely to proquandry 
I deserve so much more than this.
