05. Bone Broke

Look closer you can see

How I been running it.

I got a dollar bill in the cockpit.

Surprised being white is a black hole?

I got another job at the liquor store.

Damn, I'm bone broke.


They got a white pony in a stable

And ride him when the doggie isn't able.

But he don't really care, 'cause they pay him.

But still a black suit

Is gonna shake him down.

Oh well

I'm bone broke.

Broke as I'll ever be.


Look another way girl I'm telling ya

God gave seven minutes right to ya.

And your mother put her money into platinum

So that you wouldn't have to pay

Attention.

Right?


I'm leaning on a brick with my nails,

I'm telling 'em the money's in the mail.

Keep showing that my bones

Never fake it

But still a brick bank is gonna break it down.

Oh well

I'm bone broke.


Look another way girl I'm telling ya

God gave seven minutes right to ya.

Your mother put her money into platinum

And now you never have to pay

Attention.

Do you?
