Life’s A Gas In The Greenhouse

I’m puttin’ on my finest suit
My dark sunshades and army boots
I’ll pack a tank of oxygen
In case I lose my breath again
And everyone will come to see
The mandatory revelry
While the bitch that we call Mother spins
Under the weight of our seven deadly sins
The seamstress belches filth into the air
The farmer spreads his poison ‘round with care
For the party, they prepare

Life’s a gas in the greenhouse
Where there’s a grand old party goin’ on
The gold, it flew like tickertape
As we danced until the dawn
Now my voice might seem a bit raspy
And my flesh a little raw
For life’s a gas in the greenhouse
It’s all too grave to ignore

The doorman smiles and tips his hat
Still has his hair – imagine that
I pause before the looking glass
Then out the door into the greenhouse bash
The apothecary passes hemlock tea
The chaperones pretend that they don’t see
We’ll throw what’s left into the sea

Life's a gas in the greenhouse...
