Mass hallucination on the ballroom floor
An ancient rite of passage on the shithouse door
And you keep stealing all my cigarettes
And your whiskey breath
Is drowning out the words your'e saying
But go ahead, get 'em off your chest

And I feel it in the marrow of my lazy bones
You're onto something better
And there's always someone better

Did I drink you down?
Did I drink you down?
Don't let me drink you down here to my level?

That ain't too good
That ain't too good
No, that ain't too good

Oh here I go again you've heard it all before
But I only caught a glimpse
Can I see a little more?
You give it all, give it all
But it's never enough
When you're deaf, and dumb, and blind with love

And I can see down to the bottom of your big blue eyes
You're onto something better
And there's always someone better

Did I drink you down?
Did I drink you down?
Don't let me drink you down here to my level.

That ain't too good
That ain't too good
No, that ain't too good

    General Commentyeh i thought it was drag.

    my favourite part has to be "...drowning out the words you say, but go ahead get em off your chest"

    "And I feel it in the marrow of my lazy bones
    You're onto something better
    And there's always someone better"
    this part i thought was coming from the girl with whiskey breath, and then the "did i drag you down" part was the singer saying is it my fault you're not doing so good? and also kind of ironic coz she thinks he's moving onto better thing, but also thinks he's low "did i drag you down here to my level"
    that part i definitely felt was sarcastic.

    i dno how i came to the conclusion that the whiskey breath speaker was a girl, does anyone else feel that way?

    General CommentI think the second line is actually:

    An ancient rite of passage on the shithouse door

    And the repeated section isn't "Did I drink you down" but "Did I drag you down."

    General CommentTo me, he's singing about how he is drinking heavily and still loves the girl he is with, though she's angry and wants someone "better."

    General Commentyeah its definitly "drag you down"

    Which makes more sense:
    "Dont let me drink you down here to my level"
    or
    "Dont let me drag you down here to my level"
