lyrics

big big terror
give me big big smile
and i feel a little itch
i haven't felt in a while
i can hardly contain the way
i got my last paycheck
on my last friday
i leave it sittin in my lap
got a lump inside my chest
about the size of an egg
i'm pushing in thru the back
and make my way to the stage
i'm gonna spread it all around
i'm gonna spread it, spread it

this is
sickness
i'll say anything
just give me some more medicine
this just may be the last of my days

call the guidant corporation
make sure to use my name
then call the nearest electrician
people i'm in some pain
get on the radio to HQ
maybe that means their gonna try to say

i keep the magnets away
i the same for microwaves
they get inside my veins
they take away my legs
and i'm forgetting all your faces
i'm forgetting all your names
i got a pony in my ribcage
and shes dragging me away
i gotta make it thru the last song
maybe thats insane
i gotta do it to the death to the death to the death
and i'm a give it all away
because i'm mother fucking vain
the press is on the way
i got an image tro maintane

this is
business
i'll say anything
just give me some more medicine
this just may be the last of my days

getting sicker everytime we play
getting sicker everytime we play
check the ticker, check the ticker, check the ticker
check the ticker, check the ticker, check the ticker

and there's a first time for everything
like everybody says
and i do all the measuring
that's me all fucking day
i keep a smile while i'm measuring
every fucking day
i keep a smile while i'm measuring
the festering the pestering
and there's a last time for everything
just might be today
another line of questioning
that don't get in the way
it never was worth mentioning
ah no it never was worth mentioning
now was it

this is
sickness
i'll say anything
just give me some more medicine
this just may be the last of my days
