lyrics

You could work hard all your life for minimum wage
With two point five children and a wife you fucking hate
You could leave her in the dead of night throw everything you've earned on red

You could be a good man or you could be bad
But you're really just a dead man

You could waste all of your days doting on one man
Give up all your dreams for him and work on your tan
Or you could wait 'til he is sleeping and go fucking anybody that you choose

You could be a good woman or you could be bad
But you're really just a dead man

And some people tell you slow your road
You're sniffing your dead ashes up your nose
And they might tell you check your pace
You're pissing all your money down the drain
But I bet they lie awake at night crying out
Somebody won't you kill me
So you might as well do what you please before you end up in the ground

I wasted my hours looking in the mirror
Checking that I'm perfect and wishing I was thinner
But I want to fuck and I want to fight
I want to stay awake all night

'Cause I could be a good woman or I could be bad
You could be a good woman or you could be bad
You could be a good man or you could be bad
But you're really just a dead man
