"Long Distance Drunk" as written by and Isaac Brock....
Hang it up now or never
Hang it up again
(Hang it up now or never)
Hang it up now or never
Hang it up again
Hang it up now or never
Hang it up again

Doesn't seem like anything you're saying or doing or doing
Is making any sense

Long distance drunk
Long distance drunk
Long distance drunk
Oh yeah oh yeah

(8 AM and someone calls you on the telephone)
Long distance drunk
(You want to be by yourself and all alone)
Long distance drunk

    General CommentIt probably has more meaning than just being a Bukowski story. It struck me as a song about being an alcoholic, to the point where it really starts to have an effect on your life. "Someone calls you on the telephone you want to be by yourself, and all alone," becoming antisocial. Not making any sense with his actions because he's always drunk.

    General CommentI think this song is just about depression, and how he just wants to stay away from everybody. He forces himself not to listen to anybody.

    General Commenti think this song is about a giraffe, who later realizes he has a burning passion for grapes, ditches everything he's known, and runs to the hills to eat his squishy, purple grapes. but hey, its just a hunch.

    General Commenti think this is about wanting to be isolated and being drunk to ease the pain of something
