Lyrics

This song is dedicated to the chain of lies
Handed down from generation to generation
Like cancer through the ages

Well you seem to be waiting
For the thunder or the lightning
To blow away all your bad luck baby

Well you seem to be waiting
For a big landslide to take you away
But I don't think that a million bucks
is really gonna change your luck
I'm here to tell you that's too high a price to pay

'Cause it don't take much of the right thing

And if I stay by you
Don't worry about it
It don't take much for me to stay by you
And if I love you too much
Don't worry about it
It don't take much for me to love you

And they say that the world's gonna end with a whimper
Well that's just the sound it makes anyway
And I'm sure a bottle of some more million bucks
would make it feel better
But believe it or not I think that's too high a price to pay
