Tonight will be preceded by
A few drinks to calm me down
To settle my gut, to work up a smile
Because your bones are shakin'
Baby, agitate my nerves

I'm feeling reckless
And I feel the need to stress this
I'm stepping out
And I'll do this till I'm somebody else

Well, tonight I'll be a classic work
Like Edgar Allan Poe
And I'll die on these streets of Baltimore
As a beggar, john, or buyer
Look, I'm just trying to score

But at least I won't be out alone
I'm with my uncle and his mother
And the rest of my family's history
Is with me, shouting, "Have another!"
Now I'm taking all the liberties
I was too scared to before
I've accepted that we're just chemicals
Now bend over and touch the floor

Plan A has got a boyfriend
But she melts to my touch
Plan B has got a crush
As much as she's got a lust
Plan C well, God forgive me
Well, she, she just lives to fuck
I'll just act like I'm not in control

Well I'm feeling reckless
And I feel the need to stress this
I'm stepping out
And I'll take this, drink think, do this, smoke this
Fuck you while we're somebody else

But at least I won't be out alone
I'm with my uncle and his mother
And the rest of my family's history
Is with me, shouting, "Have another!"
Now I'm taking all the liberties
I was too scared to before
I've accepted that we're just chemicals
Now bend over and touch the floor

Shut up and dance
Ms. sings in her sleep
Ms. moves to my beat
What kind of secrets are we keeping tonight?
Because he's not here and he's not waiting up
How about another spin around the floor?

But at least I won't be out alone
I'm with my uncle and his mother
And the rest of my family history
Is with me, shouting, "Have another!"

Be sure I'm slutting it up
'Cause I know love's not enough
And I'll be outside the bar
Hopes for the back of her car
She's got wandering eyes
And much more curious lips
And I'm still betting every dime
She answers as her skirt slides over her hips

    General CommentJust because they drink, doesn't make them alcoholics. It just means he doesn't see why he should do any better than they have before him.

    It's the best fucking song ever written about hedonism, hating who you are, and doing anything you can to escape it and feel something for a change.

    General CommentAmazing band and song.
    Is it just me or does it seem like he is referencing alcoholism (I'm with my uncle and his mother and the rest of my family's history is with me shouting, "HAVE ANOTHER!")?

    General CommentI think this song is about him getting totally wasted just so he can bring himself to sleep with whoever he finds. Especially the whole "And I'll take this, drink think, do this, smoke this
    Fuck you while we're somebody else" It kind of sums up the song.

    General Commentthat line on the original demo version was "take this, drink this, do this, smoke this, fuck you TILL i'm somebody else"
    which i like 100x better.
    it just means he doesn't like the person he is and is trying to change himself through drugs, alcohol, and promiscuous sex.

    ...i love it.

    General CommentYeah, Lamantle, the family history [And the rest of my family's history is with me shouting, "HAVE ANOTHER!"] is definitely about alcoholism.

    I agree with morningsidedj on the meaning.
