Track Name: False Economy
flash! we're spinning out
we're on the run
we're running out of gin and gas
the vices hold all of this shaky shit together
crash! the market quakes
the broken brakes are squealing out
for heaven's sake
and saving face is such a false economy

oh, what happened to you because it happened to me too

flash! the lights go out
we're lighting up
we're swinging from the rafters
barely hitting notes, but we keep singing
the last thing you remember is a cool that got under your coat
and saved you
as it knocked the wind from me
