Of part and parcel well we're already dead
Well it's probably been said that it's always been said, that

One wing isn't even enough, it isn't even enough
It isn't even enough, to leave
One wing isn't even enough, it isn't even enough
It isn't even enough, to leave
(HAHAHA HAAA HAAA HA)

I'm gonna' shake myself right out the door
I'm gonna' thank myself when it's finally over
I'm gonna' let my own bad self take over
I'm gonna' move my arm out with my shoulder, and

One wing wasn't even enough, it wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough, to leave
One wing wasn't even enough, it wasn't even enough
It wasn't even enough, to leave

One wing wasn't even enough, it wasn't even enough,
It wasn't even enough, to leave,

First off Gary was on trial and drunk before we'd left bed
As things got bad it wasn't hard to say that he had no idea
Well I hadn't noticed but the people really noticed that they really didn't want us around
So we all just opened up our mouths and wallets to this town
Well I was walking just a little bit sideways and you were walking sideways too
Well I hadn't learned when a front door can be used, here we go sir

We had darkened doors so we didn't read what the sign read
Though simple enough it was demure and though the ground needs to be fed
Well I hadn't noticed but the people really noticed that they really didn't want us around
So not a single one of us will ever leave town, here we go sir

Our bodies were laid out evenly for fifteen yards
Well two feet above each of our heads was a fly trapped in a jar
Well I hadn't noticed but the people really noticed that they really didn't want us around
So every single one of us fed the ground, here we go now

One wing, one wing, wasn't even enough
One wing, one wing, wasn't even enough

Of part and parcel well it's probably been said
That it's always been said, we were already dead
