lyrics

last night we were mixing it up
on usb sticks and weeded stones
where djs keep their secrets

and the fan boys and girls
gather round awkwardly
in roles
learned and acted out
I can’t pretend the flattery
doesn’t feel good
but I think I can tell
you think I’m more
important than you
and
that’s not good

its an old friend
you can’t forget
its an old front
you can’t back up
its an old face
that haunts
this whole place

last night I fucked up
but I just woke up
this isn’t over yet

love is the closest
to heaven i’ve ever been
and I keep falling down
forgetting to forgive you
and myself
for a song so trite
I have to admit its
better left to be nice
than awfully right


It had been a while since I been out
now older than what I thought was
some new and improved self
but I was like Tony Soprano the way
I was dishing it out
as if the critic and the musician
weren’t in one another's best interest
why was I being intimidating?
why did I care to make a point
about something so frivolous as
as krautrocks influence on Wilco
or how do properly pronounce
greil marcus

its an old friend
you can’t forget
its an old front
you can’t back up
its an old face
that haunts
this whole place
last night I fucked up
but I just woke up
this isn’t over yet

love is the closest
to heaven i’ve ever been
and I keep falling down
forgetting to forgive you
and myself
for a song so trite
I have to admit its
better left to be nice
than awfully right


I demand a lot of attention
and im sorry
I can be so aggressive
with manhood tendencies
im starting to recognize
there’s nothing to it that’s
really worth keeping
and its taken me thirty years to
realize I’ve been the one being
dominated my whole life
better left to be nice
than awfully right


its an old friend
you can’t forget
its an old front
you can’t back up
that haunts
this whole place
last night I fucked up
but I just woke up
this isn’t over yet

love is the closest
to heaven i’ve ever been
and I keep falling down
forgetting to forgive you
and myself
for a song so trite
I have to admit its
better left to be nice
than awfully right
