about

There’s gold in the fountain
Spitting that glitz gonna make you a rich man
Snake on the red road
Getting a download up from the canyon

And all I am saying is we could just be praying to a bag of bones
And this ringing in my ear confirms all my fears there's something wrong

And I shouldn't have stared at the sun for so long
I should have stayed on the farm until the harvest
Could it be there's a balm in Las Vegas
A balm

Better hope your luck holds
Anyway the dice rolls
Even your chips are gonna end up in the landfill

Hey old soul born
Where the hell are you from, welcome to the time bomb
Mean old Pharaoh
playing the late show and things are getting biblical
Man it's a long shot
But maybe this slot’s gotta win for the big heart

And all I am saying is we could just be praying to a bag of bones
This ringing in my ears confirms all my fears there's something wrong

I shouldn't have stared at the sun for so long
I should have stayed on the farm until the harvest
Could it be there's a balm in Las Vegas
A balm
Could it be there's a balm
Could it be there's a balm
Could it be there's a balm
A balm

Save me Jesus
Maybe Elvis
Praise be
So say we all
