Well the ocean spreads out the front of my house If you come from north start heading down south I watch the fast cars go past While sipping gin from my glass And bring a smoke to the lips of my mouth 'Cause I'm really fond of where I live In the suicidal part of the town I can always get a grip if my mind permits Otherwise I go and lay down Lay down, lay down Lay down, lay down Lay down, lay down Lay down, lay down What's that who's smashing bottles out the front of my house? It's morning and I'm trying to sleep Well a nine to five life is what my being's avoiding But I gotta work 'cause nothin's free or cheap Now I'm getting used to the football And the control it's gotten over the town 'Cause I like to scream at shit when my throat permits Otherwise I go and lay down [Chorus] Well lay down everything Take it off in front of me Lay down next to me For Christ's sakes let me breathe Well god I dunno what'll make me happy Is it something good or evil and bad And if I look the other way will my thoughts decay? 'Cause I don't want to bury my head deep in the sand This tied knot you can never undo You can call but don't make a sound 'Cause I can always drink and shit when my funds permit Otherwise I'm just gonna go and lay down [Chorus]
