Silkworm – Slow Hands lyrics

Well I got down on the subway with my oldest friend Jean Luke
And commemorated the occasion with his gin and my juice
"Luke, you got me thinkin', you're drunk all the time"
"No" with a chuckle, "I'm not drunk I feel so fine"

Lay it down in full view
Lay it down in full view

Well stuck there on the D train where it heads above ground
Into a scene of blasted buildings
Where the drunks go to fall down
Starin' out the window asked about Secona Lee
"And Luke, do me a favor, never mention that to me"

Lay it down in full view
And lay it down in full view

He's still starin' out the window as I pat myself on the back
And I feel a little better 'cause I'll never end like that
But you know our only difference
He gets drunk while I chase fame
Just like Luke in the evening, there's no one to say my name

Lay it down in full view
Layin' it down in full view
