lyrics

There are no stars in the new york sky
they all fell to the ground
they're in a bar downtown
looking glassy eyed and really really drunk
so pick your poison, pick your poison
I'll take the strongest one you've got
I'll drink to everything I'm not
a drink for everything we're not

The blocks are long, the pavements cracked
there's a well fed monkey on my back
I'm falling off the wagon again

Your bed is warm my heart is black
Put your best foot forward, take two steps back
I'm falling off the wagon again

Put your bets with the house
if the deck looks stacked
you're free to go but it's a long way back
I'm falling off the wagon again

Love is sweet and lovers are cruel
There's an iron law for every golden rule
I'm falling off the wagon again

The days are short if the work is fun
every honest cop is wearing a gun
I'm falling off the wagon again

the city gives the city kills
my monkey does what a monkey will
I'm falling off the wagon again
