Good morning, baby
I love all your ideas
Took the job downtown
Where I guard the museums

Life is pain

Good evening, darling
Let me tell you the deal
I'm the son of a god
But that god isn't real
In the city
Where they call you by name
I'm 1000 years old
But I'm digging my grave

Life is pain

Deep as the sky
Strong as the ocean
We built the Parthenon
And sold it off to Romans

So pay tribute, honey
I absolve you your crimes
In ether
Where the world is unmade
A responsible man
A respectable trade

Life is pain
