A cool tall drink of water is all you ever wanted to be,
And if you had another wish to wish you'd be fun and moving.
But you can't talk to people right, you can't tell a story,
You're tall, long legged and your heart's full of liquor.
And me and everybody are just ice in a glass.

You had fun, but you couldn't get him out of the car.  I guess mama's boys only go so far.
You went in and put a record on to make it sound like someone was home,
And thanked yourself for pouring yourself a drink.

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the shower,
burn yourself alive and join the monster squad.
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself.

Everyone's caught onto everything you do..

Is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with,
cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish,
I've seen more guts in 11 year old kids.

Have another drink and drive yourself home,
I hope there's ice on all the roads,
and you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
and again when your head goes through the windshield.

I found religion at the record store,
I found heaven on your kitchen floor
No more late night drives to Boston.
No more Cure songs to get lost in.
No more taxis, subway tokens..

You wait too long, you never leave.
It feels like dying but still your heart beats..
she burned like a fire only drowning men could see
