lyrics

I had to get a fix, but it didn't do the trick,
'Cause I couldn't get high, my blood was too thick,
And I need an operation, 'cos I'm feeling kinda sick,
My body's on the floor, and I'm sinking like a brick,
'Cos I never seen the sky from the edge of a crater,
Got my brain hooked up to the dead generator,
Coulda been a Jedi, but I had to be a Vader,
Riding through the fire in a service elevator,
Like a broken arrow, I couldn't cook it clean,
Lookin' at my life like a dirty magazine,
And it shoulda been easy, but for what I've seen,
It's hard to get candy from the cash machine.
Shoulda been easy, but from what I've seen,
It's hard to get candy from a cash machine.

Lights out- the elevator's up, there's a deal goin' down,
And I gotta get a cut,
When you roam the west side with the geezers and the creeps,
You sweat it when they call, and you see them in your sleep,
Cos, I kick 'em to the curb, but they always crawling back,
And I hear them in the alley, when they talking that smack,
So, I beat 'em with a stick, and I'm feeling like a fiend,
Running out of tricks, and it's nearly Halloween,
But, it shoulda been easy, but from what I seen,
Hard to get candy from a cash machine.
It shoulda been easy, but from all I seen,
It's hard to get candy from a cash machine.

Yesterday, I got a tip from a dirty cop,
He said we gotta cash out, so I'm closing shop,
Is there any other way? I been having my doubts,
Gimme one last deal, and I swear I'm out,
And there'll be no complications, you can go for a ride,
If it goes down easy, I'll be satisfied,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine.
