Queensbury #8
Hell Hotel punk rock estate
Way way back in the day
100 years it seems that way
Just across from Wayne's Junk Store
3 floros up then straight ahead
If someone thought to lock the door
Use the fire escape instead

Someone's always up to something
One thing's always understood
If nothing happened in a minute
Wait another, something would
Avoid the landlord, spend the rent
Raising hell with reckless style
And sure our time was poorly spent
But toxic toast still makes me smile

Looking back now-not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me-like it wants me
I remember, I remember, I rmember-toxic toast

This stuff's 130 proof
Glue threw the TV off the roof
The whole damn place just wasn't stable
Andrew trashed the coffee table
Rico's here, the party's reeling
Colam's been spray painting the ceiling
Can't make a call and man it's gold
Alcohol and stranglehold

Toxic toast, Jake coined the phrase
haven't thought about it for a while
Mindless endless nights and days
But toxic toast still makes me smile

Looking back-not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me-like it wants me
I remember, I remember, I remember-toxic toast

    General Commentthis song most likely deals with dicky's college days... his constant parties and whatnot, and somehow toxic toast fits into all this

    General CommentThis is the best mmb song, which is saying alot. But no one has seemed to get the meaning down. its about alcoholism. 130 proof is a hard liquor. Toxic Toast is just a name for alcohol that "jake coined". the author is still battling with his addition: "still haunts me like it wants me". the song covers a time in his life where his addiction was at its peak and him and some friends would party and drink in an apartment in what is probably boston. he admits "we made it through not all of us but most" suggesting that he lost some friends during this reckless period of his life. many other mmb songs deal with alcoholism so its not surprising this one does too
