The Year of the Dog Lyrics

Is the dreamboat sinking?
A dog choking on a lotus flower shot up yelping
Tethered to his dumb desire
You probably don't see me down here at the Lake of Fire
Floating on my back
Shooting Roman candles at the Midnight Choir
So this Halloween, I'm dressing up as a younger man
Begging for candy before I turn back again
I never got to you
You never heard my cries for help
I thought someday you'd love me
I guess I'll have to do it myself
In the year of the dog, I'm drilling for oil
In the year of the dog, I'm digging for
My inner child, quietly smiling
Hiding somewhere in this grave
Living through cancer
Dying for answers
Tossing out the birthday cake
A foxhole intrenchment of deeper enrichment
My lover's gentle way
Some people out there listening
Cough if you can hear me
I'm just glad you came
Cheers to the unholy daughters making creaking mattress art with runaway fathers
Oh God, you gave me a start
I didn't know anyone was here wearing the Apocalypse Mask
I should have been prepared, but I had to stop for gas
Give the world a mother
Someone's calling CPS
To come get the children
I'm sorry the apartment's a mess
I've been busy starving
Whittling down the money tree
Using the scraps for lumber to build my own eternity
In the year of the dog, I'm drilling for oil
In the year of the dog, I'm digging for
My inner child, quietly smiling,
Hiding somewhere in this grave
Living through cancer
Dying for answers
Tossing out the birthday cake
A foxhole intrenchment of deeper enrichment
My lover's gentle way
Some people out there listening
Cough if you can hear me
I'm just glad you came

Is the dreamboat sinking?
A dog choking on a lotus flower shot up yelping
Tethered to his dumb desire
You probably don't see me down here at the Lake of Fire
Floating on my back
Shooting Roman candles at the Midnight Choir
So this Halloween, I'm dressing up as a younger man
Begging for candy before I turn back again
I never got to you
You never heard my cries for help
I thought someday you'd love me
I guess I'll have to do it myself
In the year of the dog, I'm drilling for oil
In the year of the dog, I'm digging for
My inner child, quietly smiling
Hiding somewhere in this grave
Living through cancer
Dying for answers
Tossing out the birthday cake
A foxhole intrenchment of deeper enrichment
My lover's gentle way
Some people out there listening
Cough if you can hear me
I'm just glad you came
Cheers to the unholy daughters making creaking mattress art with runaway fathers
Oh God, you gave me a start
I didn't know anyone was here wearing the Apocalypse Mask
I should have been prepared, but I had to stop for gas
Give the world a mother
Someone's calling CPS
To come get the children
I'm sorry the apartment's a mess
I've been busy starving
Whittling down the money tree
Using the scraps for lumber to build my own eternity
In the year of the dog, I'm drilling for oil
In the year of the dog, I'm digging for
My inner child, quietly smiling,
Hiding somewhere in this grave
Living through cancer
Dying for answers
Tossing out the birthday cake
A foxhole intrenchment of deeper enrichment
My lover's gentle way
Some people out there listening
Cough if you can hear me
I'm just glad you came
