Lyrics

Lotto Soma
by Greg Englesson

I got my ticket I am addicted I got my ticket I’m addicted

All’s I ever hear you say
that I’m gonna win someday
and it seems that you find
you just waste more time in line
they say you have to play to win
but them numbers got under my skin
make me wiggle and twist and shout
my life’s a drag and I want out

I got my ticket I am addicted I got my ticket I’m addicted

just pick a number in a line
watch ping pong balls to the end of time
6 5 4 3 2 1 one in a many million just won
he’ll keep his job as a janitor
buy his wife and expensive fur
throw a party for his friends
Hollow days that never end

I got my ticket I am addicted I got my ticket I’m addicted

We’ve got to supplement the revenue
that’s what this lottery will do
a bit more money for the state
you play them numbers and wait and wait
for something fair to be done
to dream to be a millionaire is fun
Upon this ravaged earth air and sea
this lottery can not set you free

I got my ticket I am addicted I got my ticket I’m addicted
