I spent the night in a sunken city
Drinking deep from the wells of self pity
Nobody knows cause my curtains are closed
If I'm ugly and old or I'm sweet and pretty
But the telephone only goes ring ring ring
When there's nobody home
I foated away on a wave of waste and decay
I could drag that lake for a lark and mistake
Some broken face for a body that ached
Just to skim the surface but to give me purpose
It's a gonna sink sink sink
I'm a bit of a waster but I'm come to embrace it
I love all those dirty places
Full of them empty faces
But you're an oasis untie my laces
It never ceases to amaze me
Just how far from pain you take me
I spent the night in a sunken city
Eating mud pies of self pity
A dirty lake is the sky as far as I can make out
But I don't know why I can't rise to the top of it
Will you make me
