lyrics

Goodbye to the Gramercy Ball
It’s gone now and no one survived
All of the best things that money can pay
Have passed on their problems to those who have stayed
All the mistakes that we paid for on credit
And prayed for have finally been made

So buy your time from someone you trust
And I’ll buy mine from a cold blooded schemer
Who lies as he cheats me and claims that it’s just

All of the pockets where money collides
Are emptying out right in front of your eyes
The future’s eternally bankrupt but history provides

So I’ll meet you at Tammany Hall
‘Cause the ghosts there know how to get by
They say this is as good as it gets
They say never pay all of your debts
They’re the only things that keep the world alive
