I got high as a kite on Friday night...
And listened in on all my neighbors' arguments,
They love to fight,
I love them for it.
I go to sleep to the sound of slamming doors and expletives,
I wake up to the sound of breaking doors and crying kids.

I can't get them evicted, because I've grown addicted...
To laughing through my floors.
If they move out, I can't live here anymore.

This is a getaway from feeling oh, so desperate.
It's all I've grown to know.
This is a getaway from feeling oh, so desperate.
It's all I've grown to know.
Oh no.

I swear to God, this wind's got it in for me...
It's cold as hell.
And Hamilton, apartment four is in deep freeze.
And it's hard to tell if it'll thaw, or if the ice is here for good...
It's killing me.
The frozen air has wrapped me up and tied me down.
It's time to leave.

I'll make a promise...
Heartfelt, and honest.
That when I get back home...
If it's still freezing,
I'll sleep away the snow.

This is a getaway from feeling oh, so desperate.
It's all I've grown to know.
This is a getaway from feeling oh, so desperate.
It's all I've grown to know.
Oh no.

This is my home.

    General CommentHas anybody realize that the lyrics are not 'sleep away the snow', but actually 'slit the winters throat'? I may be wrong on this, but listen closely he does not say snow he says 'throat'. I've listened to the song about a hundred times and I am an avid Boys Night Out fan.

    General Commenthhhmmm, so nobody's posted on this song yet? Prolly the best song off the new cd in my opinion, sounds as if he has been so used to the life hes lived and where hes grown up that even though change is what he seems to need he just cant leave what hes accustomed to.

    "i cant get them evicted because ive grown addicted, to laughing through my floors, if they move out i cant live here anymore..." - says it all

    And though winter seems unbearable, he says he'll sleep through it and avoid leaving, even though its killing him...

    Just my thoughts...
