Losing sight of a past time
The years fly right by with the drinks
It’s morning in this small apartment
And I just threw up in the sink.
The coke is not settling anything
And I’m as tired as I’ve ever been
I’d like to go back to Chicago
But I’m not looking back there again

I fought with all of my teachers
I fought with all of my friends
I fought with the vices and sweating and shakes
I’m not going back there again.
No, I’m not going back there again.

Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away.
Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away.
I don’t want to hear about old days -
What are we doing today?
Fake memories, they don't impress me.
The old times were never that great.

We got the whole city
Before us
Tonight, tonight we're walkin’ away
And I wanna bury
The past
Tonight, tonight we're walking away
With bottles and dancing
With whiskey and love
Let’s drink to the death of regret

Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away
Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away
Ohhh.

    General CommentLosing sight of a past time
    The years fly right by with the drinks.
    It’s morning in this small apartment
    And I just threw up in the sink.
    The coffee's not settling anything
    And I’m as tired as I’ve ever been.
    I’d like to go back to Chicago
    But I’m not looking back there again.

    I fought with all of my teachers
    I fought with all of my friends.
    I fought with the vices and sweating and shakes
    I’m not going back there again.
    No, I’m not going back there again.

    Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
    Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
    I don’t want to hear about old days
    What are we doing today?
    Fake memories, they don't impress me.
    The old times were never that great.

    We've got the whole city before us
    Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away.
    And I wanna bury the past.
    With bottles and dancing
    With whiskey and love.
    Let’s drink to the death of regret.

    Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
    Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.

    General Comment"Losing's sort of a passtime" i think thats the first line.
    and
    "Vague memories" instead of "fake memories" maybe?

    General Commentthe first line is "losing's sort of a past time" and it's "the coffee's not settling anything and i'm as tired as i've ever been." and yes it is "fake memories." i have the album, this is what's written in the lyrics booklet. fuckin' masterpiece this album truely is. i just wish they'd hurry up and make some new stuff, it's been five years. glad there's one band i don't have to worry about them selling out.
