The world keep on turning
And I do what I have to to get by
Sometimes I deliver pizza
Sometimes I take drugs
But my friends and family I love

And my girlfriend says I'm a loser
That dreams won't add to much
If I don't quit snortin' that shit right up my nose
That she will quit loving me

And you look right into my eyes
And I stare right back into yours
Just because mine are glazed over
Doesn't mean I can't see pain and misery

And we'll make it through all this bullshit
Cuz people suffer and they get by
We'll make it through the world if we stay strong
Cuz with you I belong

Cuz I've got those coke nose blues

And we elect a black man to office
But we still got prejudice inside
Give farm animals more rights on election day
And we take some peoples away

And the war goes on another day
It's in my head
It's human nature to behave like an animal
But use reasoning and self control

And people we're on a leash
Walked and beat down by police
Believe everything that I hear and see
And kept in fear of the Middle East

And I care so much and not at all
About every little thing
That goes on in the world like pain and suffering
Hatred and dying

Cuz I've got those coke nose blues

Time slips slowly through the hourglass
And we both crawl closer to the end
Of life as we know it, but what is next
Is anyone's guess

You tell me yer sure there's an afterlife
That awaits us all
If we're good we go to Heaven, but we're not
So I guess we're going to Hell

I guess that all is possible
But so is everything else
Like reincarnation or we rot in the ground
Safe and sound

And I stay up another night
With these thoughts goin in my head
My nose feels like it's gonna fuckin bleed
And I can't even feel my teeth

Cuz I've got those coke nose blues

I snorted too much ecstasy
Now my nose feels like it's gonna
