That's two over four,
Like gin over beer,
The rain should stop,
Once this madness unfolds.

You break the fifth
Over the song I love,
In the distance they play,
Truth or dare (now who cares?)

I was like you once,
Angry and indifferent,
Now I simply blind myself,
With more than I care to see.

Sit down, the sun's rising,
Mercury skies hover for you,
Anger's just a tonic boy,
She's already far gone.

Another day for a stranger's stare,
You might find her approval there,
They all come and go,
Between the wreck and shallow water.

Black tea and bread,
Should ease the pain,
Did they only warn you about love?
And forget the morning-after?

Head now, join the robot race,
Black ties and that filthy smile,
They can see your gin stained tongue,
But not the heart it speaks.
