lyrics

Did he die with cash in his pocket?
Did he lie when it all went down?
Did he keep it to himself?
Or did he run it all around?
All around
All around
All around
That's the thing about something for nothing
There's nothing that you wouldn't give
You live your life on the edge of a knife
Like it's lucky that they let you live
You used to call it love
But love sounded funny
Now you fly your paper money all around
All around
Baby, give away your purity
But don't throw away your clarity
Because nobody can see
What you see
And just because you wear my ring
Don't get stuck inside the thing
For the life that you are saving
Is worth nothing when you go
Oh, easy for you to say you are alive
But what about the ghosts who survive?
Only a lonely sound
Just above the ground
Swirling all around, all around,
All around
All around
All around
All Around
Look, look hard, adjust your grip
Bite, bite down the lower lip
You are only trying to keep him
From running all around
From here to helpless is not so far
I can feel you falling from right where you are
Only a lonely sound just above the ground
Writhing all around, all around...
All Around
All Around
All Around
God, I'd trade the blood and skin
For one more night with him
I am looking all around
I am looking all around
I am looking all around…
They used to call it love
Now they trade for guns and money
And they spread their sticky honey all around
All around
All around
All around
All around
