  1. Hard To Kill

From the album Good For You Know Who

Lyrics

when everyone's asleep
including the computers
and you're the very first
of all the blue commmuters
to step off the train
or the bus at union square
no don't get upset when you trip on the step
and no one seems to care

when you're first in line for coffee
at the deli of your choosing
and last night's excesses
resulted in some bruising
to your ego and your elbow
your shoulder and your arm
you can pay the man today with a dollar
instead of your charm

sitting in the office
standing at the bank
you go lie on the grass
make a list of who to thank
for the things you never did
and the things you never will
the way she talks you'd think she didn't know that you were hard to kill

when you start another day
with a stroll through the lobby
which was paid for with the sacrifice
of all your precious hobbies
they took bullets to the brain
as the hours sauntered by
but you're twenty-five floors up so don't forget that you can't fly

and now you're drinking in the middle
of a night so cold it burns the devil on your shoulder and your eardrum taking turns
convincing you to do things you were raised to know are wrong
but when the muscle don't get exercise
it won't stay strong

sitting in the office
standing at the bank
you go lie on the grass
make a list of who to thank
for the things you never did
and the things you never will
the way she talks you'd think she didn't know you were hard
the way she talks you'd think she didn't know you were hard
the way she talks you'd think she didn't know you were hard to kill
