Rip wide-open
For the world to see
Rip wide-open
You and me
I’m soul-sucking brother
Ass-kicking man
Hip-talking pussy-boy
That’s what I am

I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore
[I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore]
I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore
[I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore]
I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore
[I’m the pimp, the hustler, the whore]
That’s what I am

Watching the street lights turn
Watching the cigarettes burn
You know it’s time to give
People what they need

I’m always numb
I’m always numb
[I’m always numb]
I’m always numb
[I’m always numb]
‘Til I pull the plug
[‘Til I pull the plug]

Standing under the street light
It’s all orange and yellow
All the streets are empty
Yeah
Ben walks up to to me
Looks me right in the eye
Says “you want to feel out of sight?”

[Who is this anyway? Stella?]
[Oh, it’s you]

Do you stop talking
Evil
Do you know something?
You’re loving on borrowed time
yeah, it’s borrowed time and you’re living on it
And you oughta feel god damn lucky

I’m always numb
[always numb]
I’m always numb
[Always numb]
I’m always numb
[Until you pull the plug]
‘Til I pull the plug

I wanna live to see the sun
But I don’t know if it can be done
[I wanna live]
I wanna live to see the sun
[See the sun]
But I don’t know if they can be done
I wanna live to see the sun
[But I don’t know if they can be done]
But I don’t know if they can be done
[I wanna see]
I wanna live to see the sun
[The sun rise]
But I don’t know if it can be done
I wanna live to see the sun
[Scratching the sky]
But I don’t know if it can be done
[Scratching the sky]
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
I wanna live
