Well, I know that you're tired of living this way
We've been trying to get high without having to pay

The walls are all empty, it's not a permanent state
Just let me tell you that it's not too late

You're a brain drain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a drain brain, you go on and on like a bloodstain

Well, you know I ain't selfish, there's always a way
If a thing ain't worth having, you're having to pay

You're a brain drain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a drain brain, you go on and on like a bloodstain

Got so much to offer, but I can't pay the rent
I can't buy you roses 'cause the money's all spent

Well, you sat in my car, you drank my champagne
You stole all my silk but you gave me no change

You're a brain drain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a drain brain, you go on and on like a bloodstain

Got so much to offer, but I can't pay the rent
I can't buy you roses 'cause the money's all spent

Well, you sat in my car, you drank my champagne
You stole all my silk, you left me no change

You're a brain drain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a drain brain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a brain drain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
You're a drain brain, you go on and on like a bloodstain
