"Backroom" as written by and Chris Stein Deborah Harry....
Some of my old friends say I'm self possessed
I hope you don't mind if I get something off my chest
Between you and me I only go out at night
Sunlight in my eyes just makes me uptight

In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be living in a vacuum
We be looking for a fight
In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be running out of headroom
We be looking for a fight

Crowd was thinning out
And he came through the door
I look right at him
He looks at the floor
Awkward glances catch the thread long ago
I'm seeing red
Does your sister dress you up
Does the devil know you're dead

I don't know if Gabriel keeps a place for me
I still want to go to heaven & see what I can see
I don't want to have St Peter close the gate on me
I still want to get to heaven & be what I can be

We had moved to the place
I heard them say 'Last Call'
I stepped over all of them
And walked on down the hall
The man says not to wait for judgment
It comes everyday
Absolution at a price
And we all have to pay

In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be living in a vacuum
We be looking for a fight
In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be running out of headroom
We be looking for a fight

I don't know if Gabriel keeps a place for me
I still want to go to heaven & see what I can see
I don't want to have St Peter close the gate on me
I still want to get to heaven & be what I can be

Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo sha doo
Shoo
(We be drinking all night)

In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be living in a vacuum
We be looking for a fight
In the backroom we be drinking all night
We be running out of headroom
We be looking for a fight
