"The Fourth Drink Instinct" as written by and Shaant Timothy/falcone Hacikyan....
She's doesn't deserve to be in a place like this
All alone
She's underage and so very very brave
A fake ID lent her credibility
She sits at the bar
The gents are gonna try so hard

He said it was a one night stand
But the alcohol didn't let her understand
Yeah, he said it was a one night stand
A one night stand

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark
So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark

So the bartender who tends to pretend that he's concerned
Says, "Girlie girlie, you're at your best (you're at your best) when you're sober"
And she slurs, "No no, just one more"
And one turns into four
The fourth drink instinct is taking over
And the gentleman is leading her towards the door

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark
So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark

She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle
She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle
She thought that she could buy happiness by
By the bottle

So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark
So what made you think
That he couldn't find a door in the morning?
When he found that bed so easily
In the dark

He said it was a one night stand
But the alcohol didn't let her understand
Yeah, he said it was a one night stand
A one night stand

    General CommentWhoah, you guys all loved it? I'm weird then I guess. =P I like the sound of it a lot but the lyrics REALLY bother me... just like the way the words flow with the melody. Dunno. Just me I guess. Still awesome though.

    General Commentbasically she had a fake ID, got into a bar, met a guy, got drunk even though the bartender told her that she was much better off sober, then she goes home with said guy and even though he had said that it was a one night stand she couldnt comprehend cause she was so drunk and thought that he was going to stay with her and still be there the next morning after she woke up but she woke and found him not there because he did find the door even though she thought he wouldnt even bother cause he was going to stay in her drunken little mind.

    lol. just a dusting over teh top of the meaning.

    but it is my favorite song on the album besides moan. both are amazing. and my favorite part is where shaant says "girlie girlie, youre at your best when youre sober" i love it. sorry for any typos.
