Spitting Venom
Spitting Venom - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

We were spitting venom
At most everyone we know
If the damned gave us a roadmap
Then we'd know just where to go

Now let it drop
Let it all drop
Let it all drop
Oh let it all fall off

Well, you were talking soda pop
You talk it quite a lot
The opinions that I do not give
The opinions I ain't got

So let it drop
Let it all drop
Let it all drop
Let it all fall off

Well, you were spitting venom
At most everyone you know
If you truly knew the gravity
You'd know which way to go

Well let it drop
Let it all drop
Let it all drop
Oh let it all fall off

My ears were pressed so firmly
Right against your mouth to hear
When you tried to spit the venom out
Your words were not so clear

Now drop

Hold on to what you need
We've got a knack for fucked up history
Hold on to what you need
We've got a knack for messed up history

Well we went downtown
And we sat in the rain
Both looking one direction
And waiting for a train
And thought over
Thought over

I don't know you kept track
I didn't know there was a score
But it looks like you're the winner
And I ain't gonna play no more
It's over
Game over

Well we walked real stiff
And I can't touch the ground
You hit me with your hose
And said you're putting something down
It's over
Oh it's over

You can say what you want
But don't act like you care
It takes more than one person
To decide what's fair
It's over
Think it over

You were spitting venom
At most everyone you know
If the damned gave you a roadmap
Then you'd know just where to go

So we carried all them groceries in
While hauling out the trash
And if this doesn't make us motionless
I do not know what can

So just say
What a rotten thing to say
Such an awful thing to say
I didn't mean to bite you so rare
What I always did
What I always did
What I always had to sling

So let it drop
Let it all drop
Let it all drop
Oh let it all fall off

Let it drop
Let it all drop
Let it all drop
Oh let it all fall off

Cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Cheer up baby
It wasn't really always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Cheer up baby
It wasn't really always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Cheer up

Cheer up baby
It wasn't really always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Well cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had

Cheer up baby
It wasn't always quite so bad
For every bit of venom that came out
The antidote was had
