“calmly, like a razor
I got us on the door,”
Or “i got a tape of 'clerks'
Someone left the night before.”

So i go over later,
You're sitting in that chair
Smoking on your cigarette
Fingering you hair

So i get drunk and stoned,
Every time you come around.

Twenty-nine and aimless
You bartend down on fourth
Your parents pay insurance
And the parson's audit course

Over-schooled and uninspired
A trust fund up your nose
All that wasted talent but, uh
Ain't that how it always goes?

So i get drunk and stoned,
Every time you come around.
Yeah, yeah yeah

So long alison foley
So long, bye-bye

(come up higher, take a step higher)
Sometimes you understand
The reasons how you went astray
But least of all the answer,
That it hurts to watch you waste away.

So i get drunk and stoned,
Every time you come around.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
