lyrics

past the five roses factory and its amber lights
we’re happy to be far away now,
i don’t know how we got away with what we were up to.
we never carried their picket signs,
that campaign had worn us down,
instead we drifted to a basement of smoke and said,
“hey let’s ditch this rubber boat”

you can drive me down to the locks
& we’ll play chinese sticks in the street
face to face, your breath is liquid ice,
may it reach the stars
every time we meet there is no difference,
i know you can see that i am you is me is all that we need
in this galaxy we don’t speak

you were at home in the alphabetic streets
drive you to the dance, and you wore those jeans
every single day you said Paul Westerberg was God
He wore his mother’s lipstick left on the bathroom sink,
Smoking menthol slims she’d left behind,
his lips were pink
We’d sleep all night with the music on,
till you lost your head
and you broke your lp’s

you can drive me down to the locks
& we’ll play chinese sticks in the street
face to face, your breath is liquid ice,
may it reach the stars
every time we meet there is no difference,
i know you can see that i am you is me is all that we need
in this galaxy, we don’t speak

you don’t need to speak

i drank, and i drank, and i drank some more
till i stopped smoking with a throat that was sore,
i wrote to you once, but i lost the note,
the doctor said, “you know, you should look after that throat”,
i shaved my head, i read from the early church,
i looked everywhere for someone to confirm my worth
and there it is now. it’s all still there.
in the language wars. when the tempers flare.

you can drive me down to the locks
& we’ll play chinese sticks in the street
face to face, your breath is liquid ice,
may it reach the stars..
every time we meet there is no difference,
i know you can see that i am you is me is all that we need
in this galaxy, we don’t speak
you don’t need to speak
