It’s gonna be a long night
And nobody is wasting time,
The wheel of misfortune’s come
To refill, it’s an atom bomb.

And there’s enough here to know
That we might not know where to go.
Though it may just want us gone,
Though we have been all along.

I remember that just like a dream
Opening somewhere in-between.
Closing time, I tried to be your friend,
I’m bordering from lack of oxygen.

It’s gonna be a long night,
These drinks (laced with/taste like) cyanide.
The people we know have gone,
Passed out in the parking lot.

I remember that just like a dream
Opening somewhere in-between.
Closing time, I tried to be your friend,
I’m bordering from lack of oxygen

I remember that just like a dream
Opening somewhere in-between.
Closing time, I tried to be your friend,
I’m bordering from lack of oxygen

It’s gonna be a long night.
It’s gonna be a long night.

    General CommentI could be wrong but I believe this song is about the whole drinking, smoking and gambling lifestyle which most people in society feel comfortable and just how dangerous this lifestyle is....DRINKING:- "These drinks laced with cyanide" SMOKING:- "I'm bordering from lack of oxygen."
    GAMBLING:-"The wheel of misfortune’s come
    To refill, it’s an atom bomb." I love this song and this band of HOT WATER MUSICIANS even with their lack "Chuck" Ragan.

    General Commentit seems like this is a song that is reminescent about a time/night where two friends said fuck it and made the most of their time together by losing themselves and carrying on with their night life. Then again it could be about the loss of someone he shared this recklessness with. Either way a carefree song with a great feel that makes you want to dance, It amazes me how a simple three chord song can move me like this one, but i guess thats the beauty of it. Hope the album opens with it.
