Dog Days

Hear it in the air, let it rattle in my brain
They say the Dog Days are here, and here to stay
It doesn't matter anyway

If I were a child I'd probably tell a lie
Better a grown man with a pocket full of fire
There's no place that's safe anymore
Naivete is only fit for a whore

When I was small I thought I'd have a voice
Now I'm older and I have no choice
If you're "special" let me give you a clue
There's a million other poor bastards, just like you.

It's the Dog Days Dog Days, Look up to the Sky
Dog Days Dog Days, Look up to the Sky and see the
Dog Star Dog Star, In your Eyes (uh oh)
Burning alive, Burning alive, there's no time no time no time

Plenty overworked and delightfully under paid
You'd be thankful if you were getting laid
I'm sure there's somethings to care about
But, I can't imagine what

There's nothing you own if you think you do
You'd be better off if they were owning you
You see that everything will turn to dust
But that's alright, alright for us

Now I see these days will never make an end
With me running out of time and running out of friends
Hear paisley scarf beret, tell me what to say
I don't know it won't matter anyway

It's the Dog Days Dog Days, Look up to the Sky
Dog Days Dog Days, Look up to the Sky
Dog Star Dog Star, In your Eyes (uh oh)
Burning alive, Burning alive, there's no time no time no time

It's the Dog Days Dog Days,
It's the Dog Days Dog Days,
see the Dog Star Dog Star, in your Eyes
Burning alive, Burning alive, there's no time no time no time
