Fly Trapped In A Jar
Fly Trapped In a Jar - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

All part and parcel
Well we're already dead
Well it's probably been said
That it's always been said that,

One wing isn't even enough
It isn't even enough
It isn't even enough to leave

One wing isn't even enough
It isn't even enough
It isn't even enough to leave

I'm gonna shake myself right out the door
I'm gonna thank myself when it's finally over
I'm gonna let my old bad self take over
I'm gonna move my arm out with my shoulder

One wing wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough to leave

One wing wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough to leave

One wing wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough to leave

"First-off"
Gary was on dry and drunk before we'd left bed
As things got better, wasn't hard to say that he had no idea
Well I hadn't noticed, but the people really noticed
That they really didn't want us around
So we all just opened up our mouths and wallets to this town

Well I was walkin' just a little bit sideways
And you were walkin' sideways too
Well I hadn't learned when a front door can't be used
Here we go sir!

We had docked in dark
So we didn't read what the sign read
Though simple enough it was demure and tough
"The ground needs to be fed"

Well I hadn't noticed, but the people really noticed
That they really didn't want us around
So not a single one of us would ever leave town
Here we go sir!

Our bodies were laid out evenly for fifteen yards
Well, two feet above each of our heads
Was a fly trapped in a jar
Well I hadn't noticed, but the people really noticed
That they really didn't want us around
So every single one of us would feed the ground

One wing, one wing wasn't even enough
One wing, one wing wasn't even enough

All part and parcel
Well it's probably been said
That it's always been said
We were already dead
