The walls are cream-yellow, the light is dim
I don’t wanna fall asleep cause I don’t wanna wake up again
The cockroaches are fucking on the linoleum floor
And the walls are closing in

I stare at the cracks on the ceiling
I don’t know what they mean
Maybe they’re a metaphor for what I’m feeling
But I guess they don’t mean a thing

I wanna howl at the moon
But all I see are the neon lights of the whorehouses next door
I wanna sing this song to you
But the only ones who are listening are the hookers and the whores
With their high heels too high and their self-respect too low but at least they show some leg

I drink a beer or two
To forget your gorgeous eyes
But even if I drowned in a pool of whiskey
You’d still be on my mind

I drink a beer or two or three or
Four or five or six
Don’t wanna talk to any other girl
Cause you’re the only one who could fix my broken heart
