about

Yeah, we know Nero wasn't really in the last days of Rome...

lyrics

Back in the last days of Rome
They went for Nero man
Nero wasn't home
He was playing sax and violin
For all the slackers styling alone

It was a major affair
All the major movers and the networks were there
Waiting for something to happen
Through the smoke and noise and crap in the air

He gave them something that they've never seen
Kind of like what you did to me
Give me laugher tax for my sins
Burns at first, but it feels so nice when it begins
When it begins
Laugher tax for my sins

I gave my life to the church
I'm cloning Jesus through genetic research
I'm the patron saint of grieving
And the morals that you leave in the lurch

Not gonna say, "I believe"
I keep one in my hand, two up my sleeve
With my rosary, my collar
And the stack of silver dollars received

I'll give them something that they've never seen
Kind of like what you've done to me
Give me laugher tax for my sins
Burns at first, but feels so nice when it begins
When it begins
Laugher tax for my--

I'm dumbing it down
I'm kissing the ground
I'm living the life
I'm leaving your wife

I love it, I love it
I need someone to covet
A lover to smother
To leave me for another

So here's your thought for the day
You only try and dog me when the cat is away
I'll be conquered and divided
Hoping that you have decided to stay

You give me something that I've never seen
I kind of like what you've done to me
Give me laugher tax for my sins
Burns at first, but feels so nice when it begins
When it begins
When it begins
When it begins
Laugher tax for my sins
