You know it when it’s over
Door are closing feel the sober staring at you
You know you better take one more good look

One more round then it’s bottles to the ground
Smashing of the glass what a super sonic sound
You gotta pull the plug when it’s time to die
Whoa whoa whoa, bottles to the ground

There’s a suitcase on the side walk
There’s some records in a milkcrate
She’ll be staying
You’ll be throwing whiskey over one lip

One more round then it’s bottles to the ground
Smashing of the glass a perfect imperfect sound
You gotta pay the piper when the rats are gone
Whoa whoa whoa, bottles to the ground

One more round then it’s bottles to the ground x14

    General CommentI think this song is about someone whos giving up his family, life, and home and ending up drinking until his death, hence the one more round and it bottles to the ground.

    General CommentI might be totally wrong here, but I think its just about getting drunk.
    I love Nofx, and their lyrics tend to be pretty much straightforward.

    General Commentyour so right A.F.I! The chorus sounds so good, expecially when he goes onto 'smashing of the glass...' theres like some pause or something but it sounds amazing.

    Yeah its about a guy who wont stop drinking and his girlfreind/wife kicks him out her house then he drinks some more...
