I always leave the water running
When I brush my teeth
The earth is gonna dry up
And it's all because of me
There's tires in the river
And there's needles in the sea
I jumped in with two eyeballs
And I left the beach with three

Left with three (x3)

My brother's digging trenches
In the California sun
My sister's at McDonald's
And my cousin's running guns
My father's unemployable
My mother works all day
My step-mom is a genius
Working for the CIA

CIA (x3)

If I go to bed early
I'll die young

Evil in the scrambled eggs
Evil in your head
Evil in the cotton
In the sheets upon your bed
Evil in the people you see
At the corner store
Evil in the sandwich
That you ate the night before

Give me more (x3)

Evil in the sun's embrace
Evil in the shade
Evil in the money
That you have and have not made
Evil in the voices living
In your telephone
You trace the call and find out
It came from inside your home

Evil bones (x3)

If I go to bed early
I'll die young

But if I never go to bed
And if that means I'll never rest
Then maybe I can stretch the time
And trick my mind
And stay alive
For quite some time to come
