lyrics

I got my first tattoo today
It's got the first letter of your name
I hope you don't read too much into it
It's for a song that got me through
Desperate nights stuck inside my room
Feeling like I was a worthless piece of shit

The boroughs of New York City
Still don't make much sense to me
Like my thoughts, I'm isolated and lost
Went to this Greenpoint record store
To recharge my phone and maybe more
Walked through the stacks and saw a message from god*

The East River, baby, your rooftop
4 cans of beer, a couple of twist-offs (a piece)
We're always up 'til 4AM
You woke up early to call me a cab

So I leave you with this Insomniac LP
and the hope that you'll think of me
When Westbound Sign comes on

*In reference to "God Told Me To Skin You Alive" by Winston Smith, it's better known as the cover art for Green Day's Insomniac. Yeah, I'm a fucking nerd.
