Diabetic (4:22)

APPEARS ON: Roadstar (2001)

White papers strewn down Hazel avenue
Across manicured lawns
Yellow school bus waves its red arm

Here we have everything
Everything but the spark
The fire dissolves into mediocre pot
Under sodium light in the Brunswick parking lot

Everyone loves Chelsea
She always hits the vein
Mommy’s real active on the Deerfield PTA
Her parents let the silent supper decide
That everything is just fine

A silver spoon with maple residue
Destiny lies sometimes
Grandparents fought for freedom just for fun
Cause the liberty she’s dying for
Is to get fucked up at 21, yeah
A silver spoon maple residue
Destiny lies in tracks no Lexus car could ever hide

The choir resolves and then jumps in the lake
Because candyland’s caught the bug that it couldn’t shake

Everyone loves Chelsea
She always hits the vein
Mommy’s real active on the Northbrook PTA

Her parents let the silent supper decide
That everything is just fine
