    Lyrics
    I found my fickle friend
    Out in the alley way
    He said, You don't look so good
    I said, "Hey doc that's great
    You started practicing ?

    Lyrics
    Brooklyn boy, born and raised, chopping lines
    Hey hey, it's my birthday
    It's a toy I torched, a tar pit flame, a lockjaw night
    Hey hey, it's my birthday
    Dead end friends that make your stomach shake

    Lyrics
    A good man doesn't drink
    And I've been drinking alone
    So what does that make me?
    My hands they always shake
    And no one's calling my phone

    Lyrics
    The bricks get laid,
    And they get torn up,
    And laid again,
    But the bricks always get torn up again.
    Your friends won't wait,

    Lyrics
    Your skin's in my mouth
    But I'm thinking about thousands of things
    That don't got your name
    So I'm distant and weird
    Stopping your all ears
