lyrics

I’ve scored right around here
Tell me what was I doin’
Yeah, you sympathize with him ‘cause you wanna be his victim

Ride up along Spring Hill
See clouds in the distance
There’s a lot of it here
Hiding hidden

The deal is on friendly terms
No waiting, best of service
I know I’m getting cheated but that’s part of how it works
And I’m OK with that
A chip off my rock is a luxury tax

I’ve scored right around here
Tell me what was I doin'
Yeah, you sympathize with him ‘cause you wanna be his victim
I’ve scored right around here
What the Hell was I thinkin’
Yeah, you sympathize with him ‘cause you wanna be his victim

Oh the seeking and the getting
And finally the doing
I couldn’t do it fast enough
I could not save a speck or chunk
Scrape together enough for later

Up along Spring Hill or in the Square
Numerous locations where
Happiness can be purchased
Up for sale

I’ve scored right around here
Tell me what was I doin'
Yeah, you sympathize with him ‘cause you wanna be his victim
I’ve scored right around here
What the Hell was I thinkin’
Yeah, you sympathize with him ‘cause you wanna be his victim
