I lost a love that loved me completely/ ranks of regret they batter and beat me
I’m never going back again/ without a lot more medicine a few less friends
Somewhere back in my old hometown/ there’s an alright kid dragging an anchor
around
It looks a lot like a frown/ goddamn it’s hard to turn an anchor upside down
When smile ain’t a smile, just some teeth messing with your mind...
Well you’re right to fear the fear you fear you’ll find

Wake up in the morning/ and I float downtown
I watch the fish fill the filthy fucking city that drowned
Above that big hole in the ground/ where my fine friend fear had first been found.

I remember seventeen/ I remember being honest, horny, healthy, and clean.
I remember believing briefly/ that I’d been born to be the one

It seems something worse than stupid now it’s done
A lot of people I know are walking round wondering/is it ever gonna be their day?
From what I’ve seen so far man... It’s no way
Not today
Not today
Not today

Babe I’m sorry that it turned out bad/ honey with all we had
Babe, I’m sorry that it turned out... bad.
