Hey taxi
Take me straight to the heart of it
The nucleus of politics
Where somebody, somebody started it

'Cause they taxed me
With a scalpel piece by piece
They cut me deep and bled me dry
Until there was nothing left to bleed

And this is how I choose to live
As if I'm jumping off a cliff
Knowing that you'll save me
Knowing that you'll save me

And after all the stupid things I did
There's nothing left there to forgive
Because you already forgave me
Yeah, you already forgave me

Just keep driving
Leave this defeat miles behind me
So far back I'd have to rack
My mind had just remind me

I keep trying
To pick myself back up and then move on
And think about the life
I'll have when this fragile one is gone

And this is how I choose to live
As if I'm jumping off a cliff
Knowing that you'll save me
Knowing that you'll save me

And after all the stupid things I did
There's nothing left there to forgive
Because you already forgave me
You already forgave me

Never forget
There's life after death and taxes
And forgiveness comes
Then all of the rest is what passes away
Death and decay can't touch us now

Every breath that I inhale
Is followed by exhaling
Sure as the one who never fails
I know will never fail me

So never forget
There's life after death and taxes
And forgiveness comes
And all of the rest, it just passes away

Never forget
There's life after death and taxes
And forgiveness comes
Then all of the rest is what passes away
Death and decay can't touch us now
