I can't sleep at night anymore,
Sex and money
The waves are breaking hard on the shore,
Sex and money
I can't use my thoughts or my dreams,
Sex and money

But darkness is on my mind
When reason is going blind
The truth is a motherfucker

I'm looking for a reason to live
Sex and money
I only got but two things to give
Sex and money
The sissy sissy, can't you find
Sex and money

Reality ain't written down,
The toughest (???) owns the ground
The others can't come around

Sex and money, sex and money (I want it)
Sex and money, sex and money (I want it)
Sex and money, sex and money (I want it)
Sex and money, sex and money

Nipples come and nipples go
But even love goes for the dough
Sex and money
A bare week, a month or two
Sex and money
Love is fun when there's nothing to do
Sex and money

Like swallowing razorblades
For living this mess I've made
But something just ain't for the sale

I want pie and cherry wine
Sex and money
I wanna have fun all the time
Sex and money
Am I wrong, is it right?
Sex and money
Who put this fucking dirt in my eye?
Sex and money

Yeah, who put this dirt in my eye?
It's a problem to be so wise

And I can't sleep at night anymore
