- LyricsYeah, my Lord, yeah
We sell, crack to our own out, the back of our homes
We smell the musk at the dusk in the crack of the dawn
We go through, 'Epidodes II' like 'Attack of the clones'
Work 'til we break our back and you hear the crack of the bone
- LyricsAnother night slips away
In other words, I should say
There are no words you should say
There are no words
Another night slips away
