Brother Nicotine Brother Nicotine I don't want to march in lockstep I want to walk alone Walking on broken glass Along the line of fire Get thee away from me Brother Nicotine I got allergies There's no waking me up A ghetto Buddha A streetcar drunk Rabid heavens Strict boss Get thee away from me Brother Nicotine Went into a church-- An eye stares from the altar Lord here comes the suburban train, Cuts the rails like a diamond And as I choke On the burning brake fumes I watch the knife's edge Slowly traverse the length Of snow white skin All around me is tundra All around me is ice I watch everyone scurry Although nobody's getting anywhere And as the merry-go-round spins Wings a-rustling My life dances On suburban rails On the knife's edge So if I trip Trip and fall in a bad way No big loss We're a dime a dozen And in everyone's heart, a broken heterodyne Get thee away from me Brother NicotineEdit
