we never lie so well but to preserve our thin honor;

[cincopa A8DAtj6nUYQI]we never lie so well but to preserve our thin honor;
we are never so earnest as when making a fast dollar.

our freshest sincerity is out of a shiny tin can:
vacuum packed spirit is a more durable scam!

the shelf life of our best ideas and emotions,
follows the market for authentic snake oil lotion.

the wild, wild west is with us on a runaway horse;
screamin an’ hollerin is our state sponsored course.

god knows the devil loves to laugh through his dirty ass;
we wake up drunk to find out we’ve been outclassed!

jesus, this is a story more true than jehosaphat,
who couldn’t jump over a fat snoring democrat.

darvish comes up short what to say about all this;
sometimes the best way to relax is just take a long piss.
