You got closer than anybody if we go together i'll certainly see you there... In the place, where tombstones are kept as calendars, The sole purpose of one's face is a tear database, Check in at the Blue Heart Motel, Where breakfast is a joke, lunch a rumour and dinner an anecdote. Give me a room with a view, Far from the come-a-day-go-Johnnies and the heavy metal, You got closer than anybody else... The least of the damage is done, you got closer than (you got closer than anybody)...
In Sicily 03:05
Why do we subscribe to a comatosian slogan and play unlicensed pinball with the hand-picked, ass-lickers whilst they launder a blood-stained pillow crushed under the weight of a 'how do you like me now?'... Winning the loyalty of a woman like that for consecutive seasons is a hell of a drag... When you find paradise spend time with your family, When you find paradise spend time, some time, with your family, In-laws of the most t-tenuous connection will watch you like a hawk with a talon-gripped horse-whip but i would rather die than argue with a chick with a nickel-plated nine, When you find paradise spend time, some time, with your family, When you find paradise spend all of your God-damn time with your family, In Sicily the women are more dangerous than shotguns...
