lyrics

There is a bar on Avenue B
With a graffiti’d sign and a bust-in doorway
The kind of place where you don’t make friends
And eye contact is highly discouraged

I came to drown my sorrows
There ain’t no solace for me here
No just another sad sack Saturday night
With a scotch on the rocks, and Patsy Cline on the jukebox

She says I’m crazy
She says I’m out of my head
She says I’m falling to pieces
Can’t come to grips
With this life that I am living
If you can call it that

I go out walking after midnight
‘Cause there’s no money on my metrocard tonight
And I am all fucked up with nowhere to go
Pick up a new sensation to forget everything I know
Etherize my soul

I’m trying to become some semblance of
A functional human being
Til then I’ll bide my time and stall my life
As a functional alcoholic
Somebody please report me to the authorities
I’m criminally over my head
She’s under my skin
I’m out of my depth
She’s pulling me in
I got nothing left
Forgot how to swim
I wanna drown in her poison
Wallow in her sins

The sun is pulling the horizon down
I lift my head to spill my guts on your bathroom floor
I wanna go back home but I cannot muster movement
Whiskey comes in fifths but that ain’t no measure of a man
I don’t know when I’ll understand
