lyrics

Well Johnny really couldn’t figure any way out
and I don’t really blame him ‘cause there is nothin’ else,
‘cept to pull a couple levers at the hornets’ nest,
‘til your heart stops pumping blood through your chest,
and go, “All day; don’t come lookin’ for me.
All day; you know just where I’ll be.”
credit card debt and fortified wine,
life is moving one direction and we’re losing all the
time when it brings me no joy to sing,
gonna take my pink slip and pawn your wedding ring
and go, “All day; don’t come lookin’ for me.
All day; you know just where I’ll be.”

Well we’re living for nothin’, life has no meaning
sometimes it’s fun, most of the time it’s scary.
Sitting here waitin’ for World War III,
well it ain’t gonna, ain’t gonna happen to me,
‘cause I’m gonna get rich at the hornets’ nest,
turn my nickel into a treasure chest.
Well we been duped, we been down.
Foam at the mouth, everybody now,
go “All day; don’t come lookin’ for me.
All day; you know just where I’ll be…
