Does your family have any history
Of addiction or succombing to guys like me?
Was your father the type to say things right
Or was your mother the type to spend the night?

'Cause I get the feeling that you're buying time
Ironically enough, as you spark that light
You order two more shots
But don't wait for the lime
Down go your last two reasons to lie

Does your conscience keep you up at night
Screaming out
We know, we know
We know, we know
Does your conscience keep you up at night
Screaming out
We know, we know
We know, we know
Can you feel their stares?

Cross your fingers
And hope he doesn't wait up for you
'Cause my touch lingers
And it will be written all over you
Cross your fingers
And hope he buys all the shit you feed him
'Cause that taste lingers
When he's gone and you still need him

This is dirty water
But it's still something worth drinking down
If it can cure my dehydration
From the words you let slip out

'Cause we've got dirty laundry
And we've got closets with hinges
That beg to bust and expose us
For the people in the elevator

Does your conscience keep you up at night
Screaming out
We know, we know
We know, we know
Does your conscience keep you up at night
Screaming out
We know, we know
We know, we know

Cross your fingers
And hope he doesn't wait up for you
'Cause my touch lingers
And it will be written all over you
Cross your fingers
And hope he buys all the shit you feed him
'Cause that taste lingers
When he's gone and you still need him

And then he gets the feeling that you're buying time
As you struggle like a teen to spark that light
You order two more shots
But don't wait for the lime
Down go your last two reasons to lie

Cross your fingers
And hope he doesn't wait up for you
'Cause my touch lingers
And it will be written all over you
Cross your fingers
And hope he buys all the shit you feed him
'Cause that taste lingers
When he's gone and you still need him

    General CommentSounds just like a song about cheating on someone, pretty obvious by the song title. The person cheating of course feels like everybody knows.

    General Commenteven if this doesn't correct anything, if you like this song i thought you would be interested in the first(?) draft of these lyrics, from ben's absolutepunk journal, on 5-22-06.

    does your family have any history
    of addiction or succombing to a guy like me?
    was your father the type to say things right
    or was your mother the type to spend the night?

    because i get the feeling that you're buying time
    Ironically enough, as you find your light
    you call for two more shots but don't wait for the lime
    down the hatch goes your last reason to put up a fight

    Yeah darling take it off, you can blame me in the morning
    it's not my fault that his touch grew boring
    it's always "just tonight" as long as drinks keep coming
    and he'll never have know if i can keep you humming

    This is dirty water
    but it's still something worth drinking down
    if it can cure my dehydration
    those words you just let slip dried me out

    cos we've got dirty laundry
    and we've got closets with hinges that beg
    to bust and expose us for the charlatans
    the strangers in the elevator,
    the staircase and the caterer's waiter,
    always knew we were

    Yeah darling take it off, you can blame me in the morning
    it's not my fault that his touch grew boring
    it's always "just tonight" as long as drinks keep coming
    and he'll never have know if i can keep you humming

    and then he gets the feeling that you're buying time
    as you struggle like a teen to spark that light
    you call for two more shots but don't wait for the lime
    down the hatch goes your last reason to lie

    General Commentahh, amazing song. I'm surprised there's not more comments on this one.
    def. about cheating. pretty easy to interpret.
