"Cooking Wine" as written by and Matt Skiba Glenn Porter....
Sorry I'm late, I was out spoiling my liver
I couldn't wait
The sun was up for far too long today
And I can't see straight
But the two of you look awfully pretty
And I couldn't wait
Been awake for far too long today
And is it strong enough to burn away the cooking wine?
And I'm just tired enough
If I close my eyes I'll sleep for days
I'll sleep for days

Sorry I'm late, I was out spoiling my liver
I couldn't wait
The sun was up for far too long today
And I can't see straight
But the two of you look awfully pretty
You're fucking beautiful
And is it strong enough to burn away the cooking wine?
And I'm just tired enough
If I close my eyes I'll sleep for days
I'll sleep for days

    General Commenti love this song... although it took me forever to realize that when he said "the two of you look awfully pretty" he was referring to one person being severly blurred.

    General CommentJust a fun song, about drinking a little too much and coming home and being truthful about it...
    Everytime i hear this song i think of a friend of mine who sings this incessantly

    General CommentI went to the store with no real intention on buying a album so i was doing the look from A to Z method, just to waste time and what not. Well saw the self titled relize I had yet to purchase it, so i did. Put it on in the car ride home from the mall, ,and right when track eights "sorry I'm late but I was out spoiling my liver"graced my ears, I had a fav song on the album, byt the time "I can't see straight but the two of you look awfull pretty" I had a new favorite AT song surpassign privet eye. I think it was the fact that i could associate going home to my girlfriend and her being pissed off I was drunk.

    General CommentI remember the first time i heard this song. I was listening to a friends mix cd and this song graced my ears, i was in absolute awe. I ran right out and got "From Here to the Infirmiry" and was dropped jawed by this album and later bought the S/T. I remember the exact feeling i got when i heard this song....

    General Commentthe first line is just so straightforward... actually, the entire song is... but when i first heard this song, i was lying on my bed and reading. when i heard the first line, i just burst out laughing. i can't really imagine just walking up to one of my friends and just saying "sorry i'm late, i was out spoiling my liver".
