look at me
i'm a pitfall slider
sharp as a tack as i bum around Breathless
hopefully there's a lot more to me
cause lord knows the outside got nothin to spare

i know ya dreamin of some cocktail thunder
but look in my eyes, does it seem like i care?
cause i do and it's the lie that kills me
a double-jointed heart with a deadbeat stare

another vice under boardwalk
and the splinters and wear
speak to me, it's a nice, rich cherry
but you couldn't tell, on account of the glare
it's like a cross of a hitchhike rover
with the scum that you meet at the base of the stairs
casually i leave town burnin, an irish goodbye like a polar bear

i'm too cold to move on just like that
i don't want your righteous pity for the plight of the beach rat

it's like heated pools and painted flags
you never need them til you NEED them
