"The Cocktail Party" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Michael Stephen Dempsey....
Blood of Mary fills my glass
Spins crimson in the gloom
Sipping on another cocktail
Waking up in another room
Gaze out on the river
Of the gleaming city sky
Sipping on another cocktail
Watching the world go by
Surge of twilight, blazing shadows
Seeing things not there
Television flickers on Channel One
And static cracks the air

Come sunshine
Come next time
Come . . .
Oh! Come along with me!
I will show you life
I will give you my eyes
I will give you security

Yesterday was yesterday
A nightmare of my past
Sipping on another cocktail
From the same glass

Everyday was yesterday
A nightmare of my past
Sipping on another cocktail
From the same glass
