lyrics

Skin stretched over the beer
Mouth pulled into a leer
You, you own this now
You. You’re number one.

That’s why I, I always keep one in the chamber
That’s why I always keep one more
Than I need, just so I know I’ve got it
That it’s there, waiting there for me

If I had known about the accident
I would have made a joke like that in a million years
But now I’ve said it I can’t take it back
So I attempt another crack to cover the stares
As I fall from the table, I ask myself
Why couldn’t I just keep my mouth shut?

That’s why I, I always keep one in the chamber
That’s why I always keep one more
Than I need, just so I know I’ve got it
That it’s there, waiting patiently

That’s why I, I always keep one in the chamber
That’s why I always keep one more
Than I need, just so I know I’ve got it
That it’s there, waiting there for me

You give me words but don’t you see
That words don’t make a melody
I speak but it’s not clear
The rhythm isn’t working here
It’s something you don’t see
Not long before I fall asleep
Between the harmony, oh I forgot my melody
