Written March 2000.   Don't think anyone will be booking a vacation to Opaquer Place anytime soon.
Sure, I'm selling my shit on the streets.
As of yet, got no takers.
Cuz I'm charging an arm and a leg and limb
for this trash I hate
on the dark side of Opaquer Place.
--Buying some time at Opaquer Place--
--Selling my finds at Opaquer Place--

Try to bring this thing right bring this thing right outta me
Trying to force this thing out force it up outside of me
See how far my hands can dig down deep inside of me
Blackened goods do show the depths of my dependency

Chorus
Old habits don't die easy
Dying horse has few breaths left
Opaquer Place has pulled the reigns on me
And I wish it wouldn't rain less

Like a salesman who shows the inside of his trench,
I, too, got goods stashed in my guts.
Maybe they're see-through, but I got a feeling they're not.
Wrenching them out doesn't take that much.
--This is the weight of Opaquer Place--
--This is the way to Opaquer Place--

Keep on trying to just wrench it up on outta me
This dirty stinkin' sell will never let myself just be
To have this habit monster staring up and back at me
Clutching to terrible is where I always wanna be

Chorus
Old habits don't die easy
Dying horse has few breaths left
Opaquer Place has pulled the reigns on me
And I wish it wouldn't rain less

I'm giving a piggy back ride to the worst thing in the world.
Then I'll sell my back for a buck.
There won't be a line to buy back a piece of my spine.
Been a while since I gave a fuck.
--This is the way of Opaquer Place--
--This is the way to Opaquer Place--
--I am the disgrace of Opaquer Place--
--I am the disgrace of Opaquer Place--

Making certain that this shit is somehow close to me
Terrible, it seems, is where I always wanna be
Grab me by the throat and sees what throws up out of me
Taking back seat while the sorrowed crow will take the lead

Chorus
Old habits don't die easy
Dying horse has few breaths left
Opaquer Place has pulled the reigns on me
And I wish it wouldn't rain less
I wish it wouldn't rain less
I wish it wouldn't rain less
I wish it wouldn't rain less
