When I close my eyes
I can start to see a vision
Down a river of lights
Towards Pacific and Mission
These day's are all the same
Lay out a getaway
You won't find me
I've got the keys to the city

We give the same old alibi's
For why we disappear into the night
It's like I'm living in a double life
Where I could believe you
But not if I don't want to

Invent a real disease
And then you give it to me
I'm running a fever
But there's a fire underneath her
It burns me away
But I know that nothing has changed
And, "I don't want to remember"
Becomes, "Ok..yeah...whatever"

All you gotta do is take me out
And show me ways I can forget this place
And leave me naked with my mind erased
I'm putting the blame
On cheap Champagne
Just let me stumble away again
Even the Moon's not rising

I better not stand here
It feels so unreal
That woman drags on her camels
Until her eyes are like needles
And throws it away
And steps on the flame
And lights up another
And burns them all summer

In an empty parking lot
She sits beside me with the windows shut
and says, "It's easier to just give up."

The party's not waiting
Balloons are deflating
I've got nothing to say again
No easing my mind
Thanks for trying
