about

CHAMPAGNE FINANCE: For anyone who has ever come back.

lyrics

I laid on the floor, and I looked at the TV.
The people were angry, the popcorn was free.
It's been a long time since I've been in the real world, you'll have to tell me what it's like.

We started in rags and we ended in bondage.
When I woke up on Wednesday it was all still the same.
I got on a plane, just away for the weekend, and half a year later, I never returned.

I'm a parenthesis, you are a satellite, we have been circling moments of impact,
Spending our days at the Chelsea Hotel writing tomes of American history.
And just because we hit the ground, doesn't mean we can run...

My soul was the price I paid
40 bottles in the back of a basement.
It don't matter, we can't be saved.

Yeah, we came and we left our mark...
You'll be human, and I'll be on the clock.
It don't matter if it all gets lost.

I stood in the crowd and I covered my face...
The people were tired, the anger was free.
We slept through the outrage and woke up accepting, the radio laughed, and the poets retired.

I have been thinking when I'm trying not to... I woke up on Wednesday and went back to sleep
I was young for a moment, I still remember... I wasn't worth it, but I wasn't wrong.

But I'm a paranthesis, you are a satellite, we have been circling moments of impact,
Spending our days at the Chelsea Hotel writing tomes of American history.
And just because we hit the ground, doesn't mean we can run...

My soul was the price I paid
40 bottles in the back of a basement.
It don't matter, we can't be saved.

Yeah, we came and we left our mark...
You'll be human, and I'll be on the clock.
It don't matter if it all gets lost.

Well, we all got lost, and we all got over it, and we made it back to Texas, yeah, we made out it alive

And we all got lost, and we all came up empty, and we almost made it okay, and we made it back to Texas

But I'm a parenthesis, you are a satellite, we have been circling moments of impact.
