l'll be taking my time when it comes to gettin' on
And I'm doing just fine with this little trinket in my hand
I'm buying a round on that day you've finally found
I like you better from the other side of town

Why spend this life filling pockets for the hypocrites
I feel more grey most every day so I don't look
I can't believe all the grief a gal can keep up in her sleeve
It keeps me wanting back most everything she took

I feel the craze, feed the phrase and keep this ship a float
The captain said "boys first we conquer then we burn".
I fill my book with dirty looks from all the crooks whose shit I took
You'd best be watching out for me when it's my turn

Won't have it any other way it's time to live a bit
It's so much better when there's something in between
I let go everything I know, it keeps me blowing down the road
And leaves me ending up just where I'm meant to be

I don't hide inside this pride I just live with it
I don't give a damn, it's who I am and I make a scene
I swear there ain't no time to cry, I'll have them burn me when I die
To see their faces when my ashes all turn green
