    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 so don't believe that shit
    When they say they'll wait
    Trust me, your friends will not wait for you

    Lyrics
    Your skin's in my mouth but I'm thinkin' about
    Thousands of things that don't got your name
    So, I'm distant and weird we stop and you're all ears
    But how can I say
    I've just been thinking how it's harder every year
