playConfession

from Somewhere Near Paterson

I really like this counter, Doc
So much more discreet
It's nice you've made a place here
Where the customer is free
To talk about a problem
With a bit more privacy - better service

It reminds me of confession
When I used to go to Church
I used to go to therapy
But who needs all that work?
The one is too much reading
The other, too much pain
But now I'm happy

Hey Doc - How's about a refill?
Hey Doc - The pretty little blue pill
Hey Doc - How's about a refill?

Are you following the market, Doc?
Everybody's flush
You should go down to the trading floor,
It's such an awesome rush.
But everyone's a predator
I've gotta keep my edge
Can you help me?

(Chorus)

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Sometimes I look up at the stars
Sometimes I cry, I don't know why

I guess I should be riding high
The bears are all extinct
I pity all the suckers
Who take too much time to think
I can make a quarter million
Just lyin' in my sleep
Time is money
Can ya help me?

Sometimes I get down on my knees
Sometimes I wish that I could pray
Sometimes I cry I don't know why

(Chorus)

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Sometimes I look up at the stars
Sometimes I get down on my knees
Sometimes I wish that I could pray
But I just don't know what to say
Sometimes I cry I don't know why
