Lyrics

Oh, keep it shallow, yeah, keep it narrow
Come and see the ugly things that life can bring
I’m out of my skull, my edge is dull
Waitin' for a day, and a claim to stake
Oh, Mr. Sticks, with a hug and a kiss
You may say goodbye to all you’ve ever known
Mr. Mist, with a life like this
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show
A baby cries, and an old man dies
So cross your fingers tight, and you’ll freeze time
A son gives his hand, a daughter gives her hand
But you’ll you see the change in the world for your littlest girl
Oh, Mr. Sticks, with a hug and a kiss
You may say goodbye, to all you’ve ever known
Mr. Mist, how’s your life like this
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show
If my heart goes, 'fore my lungs blow
I can see a sudden match until the death
Oh, Mr. Sticks, with a hug and a kiss
You may say goodbye to all you’ve ever known
Oh, Mr. Mist, how’s your life like this
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show
Oh, the light that’s at the end is the star of the show
