lyrics

This caged canary no longer sings
This coal mine's empty you can't hear a thing
The lights from the city they hide the stars
And all the pretty girls are on their way home from the bars

Just one more promise to make and break
Just one more asshole filling up ashtrays
Imported lager aborted faith
And all the desperate boys are just waiting to get saved

This holy water is all dried out
Just like our mouths and bank accounts
The city moans but we don't make a sound
Nothing left to do but kill the lights
On this eighty proof August night
Take only what you can't leave behind

I'm a walking dead man busting at the seems
Striking up the house band lighting up these streets
Another goddamn romance another goddamn dream
Another broken heart stands in the way of everything
