Lyrics

I like my town with a little drop of poison
nobody knows they're lining up to go insane
I'm all alone I smoke my friends down to the filter
but I feel much cleaner after it rains

she left in the fall that's her picture on the wall
she always had that little drop of poison

did the devil make the world while god was sleeping
you'll never get a wish from a bone
another long goodbye and a hundred sailors
that deep blue sky is my home

she left in the fall that's her picture on the wall
she always had that little drop of poison

well the rat always knows when he's in with weasels
here you loose a little every day
well I remember when a million was a million
they all have ways to make you pay

she left in the fall that's her picture on the wall
she always had that little drop of poison
she left in the fall that's her picture on the wall
she always had that little drop of poison
