It smells like new cologne in the club tonight
The band's looking at me I said this place would be alright
We will keep it clean with minimal casualties
I've got on my game face, I've got on my war paint they don't know.
We will have a laugh and we will have a time
And I will sleep it off outside in the van tonight
If that were only true, oh man why can't that be true?
Would I make it different, would I make it better I don't know.
In a cheap hotel the window unit hums
With salt water in the air and the thickness in my lungs
And all that beige cocaine running through my veins

My heart's in double time and the thoughts I have are hardly mine.
I will rise past noon with a battle in my head
And go and brush my teeth and make sure I'm properly stretched.
I'll tie my converses tight, presenting myself right
It's 90 percent image and 10 percent figuring out who can drive
Can you drive?
On the way back home we will make our plans
In the front two seats we talk shit about other bands.
Nothing will stop us now, no nothing can stop us now
And in the back of my head I think of my wife reading in our bed
