lyrics

slipping out the back door
running through the side streets
keeping both our breath in time

i’m guessing you lied
when you you said that I’d be
waiting for something other then
what had brought me here

friday nights tongue tied by the bathroom stall
i read the poem that you scribbled in the dark
on the bathroom wall
“we’re just killing time before it pays us back in kind”

and just like fast cash
like a hand that pats itself on the back
like a joke that makes itself laugh
you’re a boat that sails without a life raft

and we’ve done it all before
so we do it once more

we’re the “next-big-thing” all lined up
just to be the next big “has-been”
and we’re sticking to ideas
just like roadkill sticks to pavement

and all that time you lose
making up for lost time
suburban blues of someone doing fine

a million ways to say it
but you had to choose the wrong way
spending countless nights inspired
writing memoirs of a liar
and tales of west coast fever
and the dust in the air
there’s a chance you’ll see her driving out there
up to the city of saint somewhere
riding airwaves and earthquakes
i know because I’ve been there myself
and I’ve been around long enough
to recognize that girls eyes
hotel beds and the friends who lie in them

And we’ve done it all before
So we do it once more
