The first one to arrive/last one to leave is me
The mess I've made a perilous pile
On the scene, kept barely clean, I see
Winey scowls and Red Stripe smiles
Are these walls solid stone?
Could we get out if a fire broke out


I'm alright 'til I

Vomit in the petunias, vomit where it ought to go
(Half my heart on a plate)
And if decadence sounds rewarding, it's only cos I make it so

So how many times do I need to see how all DJs just sound the same?
And how many times will I drink to excess with over-dark mind frames?
How many times indeed? Where does this mind set lead?!
I'm fucked if I know!

Vomit in the petunias, make a vomit-filled misshapen you
I'm in sight of my best behaviour but I only want my shouldn't-dos
(I drink more bright eyed)
I don't want to lose you

Last night I wasn't who I am
Just like the least time
Felt I forced to many laughs
And forged an altogether different path

I know what I mean
I'm not sure that you do though
I fear I might lose you.
