in denmark, things are rotten

and inside my town, the same
i am getting plastic surgery
and choosing a new name
took a look inside the map and found the farthest place on earth
now i'm gonna pack my bags and drag my ass away to perth
 
not picking up the pieces
on the floor, they're gonna lie
cause when things get so damn trying
cannot give a damn to try
so i'll be evacuating from the city of my birth
now i'm gonna pack my bags and drag my ass away to perth
 
what i once thought was medicine
became a bitter pill
and i think that i'd be dead today
if only looks could kill
i am cutting all my losses for i got my money's worth
now i'm gonna pack my bags and drag my ass away to perth
 
yes, the symphony's unfinished
ended on a sour note
i am taking a demotion
there is nothing to promote
and i'm bugging out completely from my old familiar hearth
now i'm gonna pack my bags and drag my ass away to perth
 
when the majesty turns travesty
its time to turn the page
for i've now become a dinosaur
whose lived beyond his age
and i've got to face the music, i'm devoid of any mirth
now i'm gonna pack my bags and drag my ass away to perth
