LyricsEdit

I used to think before my old age beset me
That brains could fill the pantries of the poor
But where did all my expectations get me?
I'm just as hungry
I'm just as hungry
As hungry as I was before!

Tell me brother, what's the use? (Tell me what's the use)
See the smoke floating free (See the smoke floating free)
Floating into ever colder coldness
It's just the same, the same with me (It's just the same, the same with me)
It's just the same, the same with me (It's so cold)
And it's so cold!

I used to think after she went away and left me
That she was nothing but a used-up whore
But where did all my masturbation get me?
I'm just as hungry
I'm just as hungry
As hungry as I was before!

The straight and narrow path leads to disaster
And so the crooked path I tried to tread
That got me to disaster even faster
They say we'll be hungry
They say we'll be hungry
They say we'll be hungry when we're dead!

Tell me brother, what's the use? (Mmm)
See the smoke floating free
Floating into ever colder coldness
It's just the same, the same with me (You know it's just the same with me)
It's just the same, the same with me
And it's so cold, it's so cold!

Mmm, you older people filled with expectation
Any moment now you'll walk the plank
The future's for the younger generation
Even if the future
Even if the future
Even if the future is a blank!

Tell me brother, what's the use? (Tell me what's the use)
See the smoke floating free
Floating into ever colder coldness
It's just the same, the same with me (You know it's just the same with me)
It's just the same, the same with me (Ooh)
It's just the same with me!

Tell me brother, what's the use?
See the smoke floating free
Floating into ever colder coldness
It's just the same, the same with me
It's just the same, the same with me
It's just the same, the same with me-hee-hee!

Floating into ever colder coldness (It's so cold)
Floating into ever colder coldness (And it's so cold)
Floating into ever colder, ever colder (It's so cold)
So cold (Don't you know it's cold)
Floating into ever colder coldness (And it's so cold)
Oh so cold, ever colder coldness (Ooh)
Floating into ever colder coldness (And it's so cold)
Floating into ever colder coldness (It's so cold)
