lyrics

you and me we go up and down
with the pound in this make believe
currency where we are more aloof that we
can afford to be
but investment is a risky thing
when you’re not sure what you’re worth
especially if you do business like me
and feed all your chips to the birds
yeah especially if you do business like me
and feed all your chips to the birds

but oh virtue has its perks but the bubble bursts
eventually everything is temporary

and i see people go around arm in arm
like parts in a machine
and they make each other come
with these lifetime guarantees
but oh you ask anybody over in new orleans
there’s no insurance on our homes and our cars
everything is temporary
there’s no insurance on our homes and our cars
everything is temporary

so don’t say you’re mine ‘cause i want to take you one day at a time
yeah show me that line and
i’ll sign and i’ll sign and i’ll sign and i’ll sign and i’ll sign

i cook you stolen food on this squatted land
with my borrowed time
most of which is deemed a crime in this nation of mine
where my hands have held other’s hands
and i don’t want to know where you’ve been
cause strictly between you and me
everything is temporary
yeah strictly between you and me
everything is temporary
