Your vision's been blessed if I'm still fully dressed.
Before you leave me here's one last request.
No I don't care. No I don't mind. If you don't hear a word from this broke heart of mine.
But can I borrow your face just to unload my mind, borrow your face just to unload my mind.
Well I know I'm pathetic. I'm the sage of absurd.
But I won't violate you with touch, but with words
There's no need to ask. Shut your mouth, raise a glass.
But the youth that you drink to is already the past
And the boy on your arm girl, you know he won't last; the boy on your arm girl, you know he won't last.

My madonna's undressing. Her robes are all torn.
And I swear that she's calling my name.
But for all her caresses, my senses are worn.
The feeling is gone and, sweet lady, you just don't taste the same.

And I'll drink just to drive if my love don't arrive.
I don't wanna survive. I don't wanna survive.
And all that I know is I smile just for show.
And nobody's listening but everyone knows.
So just sit back and watch while my memory corrodes, sit back and watch while my memory corrodes.
And I curse my own comfort for the deaf and the blind
Cause it's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine.
And I wake on the floor with my country at war and I wish I could care but my liver's too sore. And if liquor's a lover, you know I'm a whore.
If liquor's a lover, you know I'm a whore.

My madonna's undressing. Her robes are all torn.
And I swear that she's calling my name.
But for all her caresses, my senses are worn.
The feeling is gone and, sweet lady, you just don't taste the same.

    General Commentalmost everything in this song means something to me...

    ''I borrow your face just to unload my mind, borrow your face just to unload my mind.
    Well I know I'm pathetic. I'm the sage of absurd.''

    ''Shut your mouth, raise a glass.
    But the youth that you drink to is already the past
    And the boy on your arm girl, you know he won't last; the boy on your arm girl, you know he won't last.''

    ''The feeling is gone and, sweet lady, you just don't taste the same.''

    ''And I'll drink just to drive if my love don't arrive.
    I don't wanna survive. I don't wanna survive.
    And all that I know is I smile just for show.
    And nobody's listening but everyone knows.''

    screw it just the whole song just sings my life...

    General CommentI'm not sure if it's MINE or MIND but either way it's my favorite part of the song. Why are there only 8 comments here by the way? This is one of the better songs written in the history of the universe, where are you people?

    That is an amazing line of this song, Two Gallants really know what they're doing!

    General Commentcould be mine or mind, but I would guess mine since it seems like its a reference to the johnny cash song, dark as a dungeon

    i think that Two Gallants bring a certain poetry and i didn't want to say it, but "depth" to the modern music, now days its so hard to find bands who are truley artists, where everything starts to get watered down and diluted, they create the best music i've heard in my life.
