okay i guess i'll pick it up right after the breakdown
she walks out of the crowd, her vision's kinda cloudy
the sudafeds are downs, the crowd cheered when the threw up her beer
they sat down and shook the sand from their shoes, took off their suits and they started to move
to the light of the crescent moon, to the tune of the 2 live crew

we stepped out of the jersey pines, headed straight for the neon signs
and they like the way she types underneath the flourescent lights
and she lives in the brooklyn heights, she came down on friday nights
and they all wanna meet some guys, and we all wanna meet some guys

friends like the beach patrol, they got the muscles, you can hold the soul
she says she's waitin on the steady type, then she disappears with the eyepatch guy
they stepped out of the neon signs, headed straight for the jersey pines
and she found something she likes, and she's alright but she almost died

and they all woke up at the airport in the arcade at the western concourse
that's when she said that we should do this all over
she wipes the blood from her mouth with her shoulder
said i just need a little diet cola, or maybe just a little lifter puller
i'm sick and tired of being stranded by the subway trains
i deserve a little fuck-up every once in a while
i'm sick of being scared of falling off the side of my bed

feels great, gonna dance all the way to the ending

    General Commenthere is what craig finn (the lead singer of lifter puller) said about this song:

    "Steve Barone and I went to college together. This guy in my dorm had this t-shirt that said, "To Live and Die in LBI". LBI is Long Beach Island, and the shirt was a take-off on the movie, "To Live and Die in LA". Steve's family spent a lot of time on Long Beach Island, so it became a good setting for a song. Basically the story of a good person who has a momentary slip in judgement. I like those kinds of songs."
