Nothing ever changes round here,
Its just one constant long search for something sincere,
And I’d do almost anything to disarm your fear,
But it’s the only things keeping me near.

And the hours drift away just like sand,
The mechanics of solitude so pretty and grand
The kids all got telephones that shrink in their hands,
Before they’ve even learnt how to stand.

We go out to rock and roll shows,
And the girls wear those jeans that cut the blood off from their toes,
And I’d so almost anything to show my heart glow,
But fuck it girl who’d want to know…

And I stare down the white picket fence,
And the houses stand like ministries of suburban defense,
And all our old photos hold a silly pretense,
Like prophecies written in past tense.

I’ll hold on, if you’ll hold on,
I won’t be heading to hell,
as long as Heaven serves whiskey as well.

I think about love all the time,
And all the kids that think that heartbreak is a victimless crime,
And you hold my body like it’s the last one you’ll find,
As our heads, they go swimming in wine.

I’ll hold on, if you’ll hold on,
I won’t be heading to hell,
as long as Heaven serves whiskey as well.
Oh God does heaven serve whiskey as well?
