Who needs the past, it just sticks to your shoe
You try and move on, but the bill is due
So you walk away, and you go nowhere
Your life stumbles on, without you even there

Threw away your good luck
Too good to be true
You were someone, now you're not
And the bill is due

Parties and punchlines make a life easy to forget
But you can't rise to the light when you're full of regret
Don't become a ghost when your time is through
The world gives you away, and the bill is due

A thousand arms hold up the sky
A thousand hands hold you
You never add up what you owe
When the bill is due
