Lyrics

All your carefully selected thrift-store dresses
piled up in plastic garbage bags
carried down to the street by a pissed-off Mr. Thomas
He looks at the camera and says, "dust to dust"
You already said goodbye to the animal kingdom
to little things like despair and rage
you see Mr. Thomas's smile as just another rat
that only knows how to run and run around the maze
Mr. Thomas says, "nothing lasts"
He's said to say all good children get lost
He says, "I don't care what's killing you
In God we trust"

Mr. Thomas with his sad eyes, has the philosopher's vision
but all he talks about is the price of nails
about whitewash and what's on television
and the way you touched his life was a bouncing check
yeah, and a ninety minute tape of Mark Eitzel songs
he says, "I've seen it all before
a puerile weakness disguised as faith and love,
that's how and why it all goes wrong
and he is said to say nothing lasts
He says, "too bad all, tell the good things to get crushed"
He says, "I don't care what's killing you
In God we trust
In God we trust
In God we trust"
There are rules that separate us from the weak
and Mr. Thomas is always proud to do his part
It's always a matter of rules and boundaries
and of course what breaks his mother's heart
and he don't care what makes you live
In God we trust
In God we trust
In God we trust
