Track Name: Tequila and Cheesy Poofs
No, I can’t say I have ever really qualified
As an innocent man, by any stretch of the imagination
And yes, I’ve been known
To make my bed upon the floor
But I don’t think your very vivid descriptions
Are a particularly accurate characterization
Of just how old I am
Or just how immature

No, this don’t seem to work for me, honey
And I’m howling like a mad man from the roof
But I got me a different kind of alchemy, baby
Living on tequila and cheesy poofs

Well I can’t seem to find my invitation
But I’m famous, don’t you recognize my face
I thought I’d built a nasty reputation
But it seems that I have come to the wrong place

Well life may be understood backwards but it
Must be lived forwards and it ain’t but a high parody
To assume it all amounts
To anything other than luck
And while we’ll all certainly be subject to the
Inevitably condescension of a cruel and savage posterity
I won’t be around
So I don’t give a fuck

No, this don’t seem to work for me, honey
And I’m howling like a mad man from the roof
But I got me a different kind of alchemy, baby
Living on tequila and cheesy poofs

Well I can’t seem to find my invitation
But I’m famous, don’t you recognize my face
I thought I’d built a nasty reputation
But it seems that I have come to the wrong place
Track Name: Highball Skyscraper Blues
I got them highball skyscraper blues
I got them highball skyscraper blues
I got them highball skyscraper
Burning castles made of paper
Staring down on Second Avenue

I got them rooftop suicide views
I got them rooftop suicide views
I got them rooftop suicide
Looking down but who am I
To make a mess of Second Avenue

I got that thrift store sunglasses cool
I got that thrift store sunglasses cool
I got that thrift store sunglasses
Camouflaged amongst the masses
Walking down on Second Avenue

Aright! Alright!
Alright, you got me staring at you
You just caught me on the weekend
With my water cooler leaking
Hanging out on Second Avenue

Aright! Alright!
Alright, you got me staring at you
You just caught me on the weekend
With my water cooler leaking
Hanging out on Second Avenue
