You were full of liquor and lines and you said it was serious -- you could not see straight and you thought the audience in the room was the same. On a perfect day for a cigarette (not quite winter yet) you're an easy mark to disappear. Oh skinny, you're sleeping in your car!


You fake a smile -- the lights are so bright they're blinding you. You close your eyes (like there's something to see inside of you). Words fail tonight -- you can't get your jaw to cooperate. You change your mind.


We bought every record in the dollar bin; every single one of them was a frozen cry. We sat and watched the city go to sleep every night. There will be big blue pools for swimming in and swings for sitting in -- we'll get off the grid. We'll drift like continents. We'll never be missed.


You fake a smile -- the lights are so bright they're blinding you. You close your eyes (like there's something to see inside of you). Words fail tonight -- you can't get your jaw to cooperate. You change your mind.
