Your gun went off. Well you shot off your mouth and look where it got you. My mouth runs 
on too.
Shouts from both sides, "Well we've got the land but they've got the view!" Well now 
here's the clue.
(electric note solo)
Life it rents us. And yeah I hope it put plenty on you. Well I hope mine did too.

[Chorus - high picking]

As life gets longer, awful feels softer. Well it feels pretty soft to me.
And if it takes shit to make bliss, then I feel pretty blissfully.

As life gets longer, awful feels softer, and it feels pretty soft to me.
And if it takes shit to make bliss, well I feel pretty blissfully.
If life's not beautiful without the pain, well I'd just rather never ever even see 
beauty again.
Well as life gets longer, awful feels softer. And it feels pretty soft to me. Uh Oh.
We are fixed.
We are fixed.
As life gets longer, awful feels softer. Well it feels pretty soft to me. (We are fixed.)
And if it takes shit to make bliss, well I feel pretty blissfully. (We are fixed.)
We are fixed.
We are fixed.
We are fixed.
Right where we stand.
