lyrics

Did we die in agony with Jesus as our lord?
Satan with his horned head dies laughing by the sword
Did we die in ecstasy with Jesus by our side?
Satan with his spreading wings was bankrupt when he died

Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Falling down the staircase in the house that we foreclosed on
Did your mother spit and curse when you were delivered?
Putting dollars in the booth money in the booth at the North Beach peep show
Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Put the money in the bag or I'll blow your fucking brains out
Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Soon enough the earth will swallow up the basement rec room

Did we die in ecstasy with Jesus by our side?
Satan with his spreading wings was bankrupt when he died
Did we die in agony with Jesus as our lord?
Satan with his horned head dies laughing by the sword


Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Dying in the living room inside the house I'll die in
Biting off the filters of your cigarettes from Turkey
Putting dollars in the booth at the North Beach peep show
Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Put the money in the bag or I'll blow your fucking brains out
Falling down the staircase in the house that I grew up in
Soon enough the earth will swallow up the basement rec room

When we lived on Warren Street
With fire in our blood
Whiskey straight and Slayer tapes
Horses slept in the living room
When we lived on Franklin Ave
With our hair growing long
Arguments and fitful sleep
Water poured out from the walls
When we lived on Nostrand Ave
With pinecones in our teeth
Throwing dice on the roof
Honeycomb tastes so sweet
In the morning heat
