lyrics

ld news up on the table
god damn, you kept it stable
my hand, she wasn't able
shaking left and right
like it was fatal

and now it's on the TV
can't blow the snow from my screen
don't bother with the cable
we could grab a drink
go drinking, it's the weekend --

I can't stop this radio clock
I hit it to the ground but it wont shut off
I hear the constant buzzing of electric rot
but it's all that I know and it's all that I've got
just like all my lovers and all my kind
shooting off to nowhere like there's somewhere to find
a place for their hearts and piece for their mind
and a way to placate, maybe turn back time

If you think that you could (you could) settle down
I'd turn this whole (whole) ship right around
but if I need to get it (get it) on the side
I'll go and get it on the side,

but we're fighting till the break of dawn (yea eh yea)
we've got this whole damn town to get along
but still we can't stop
so we're fighting till the break of dawn (yea eh yea)
our crooked lines get crossed up over under
pull the knot tighter till we're forced to surrender

my name under the table
cheap set; he got the marble
straight from the cemetery
somewhere under gum was my engraving
now richie's looking sober
don't blame it on the owner
my death is eminent, yet
we gathered here today to drink, it's the weekend
