Comatose/Straightjacket

the devil’s choice is always a temptation.

i had this debutante invite me to her ball
but she met another guy in the basement of the hall
wouldn’t you know it? she made 2 calls.

i gave them time to play a little duck and hide
i know they wanted ten but i only gave ‘em five
seconds to make up their mind

yeah, a coma or a straightjacket?
life is grand if you avoid half of it
your mind and body are forever split
so, a coma or a straightjacket?

you hear a man pump some gas into the car
how many gallons do you think there are?
you know if he popped that hatch – well, there you are!

yeah, a coma or a straightjacket?
life is grand if you avoid half of it
your mind and body are forever split
so, a coma or a straightjacket?

i had this debutante invite me to her ball
maybe next time she’ll only make 1 call
i just don’t think she remembers much at all
