lyrics

though I can't recall
how your skin felt in my palm
though I have no knowledge
of the rights and all the wrongs
that we perpetrated
in secret with great speed
whilst intoxicated
but those are formalities.

oh the boardwalk's breaking
and the walls are caving
in on everything
and i can't seem to act right.

if I could express
that which is on my chest
if I could sift
the wheat from the all the rest
there would be no need
to carry on as i do
night after night
fangs drawn and I'm in dress shoes.

oh the boardwalk's breaking
and the walls are caving
in on everything
and I can't seem to act right.

someone's knocking loudly
some young thing in distress
who's sniffed out our folly
who's in a state of undress.
she's here to manage risk
talk equity and leverage
in a short term period
like some day trading hedonist.

oh the boardwalk's breaking
and the walls are caving
in on everything
and I can't seem to act right.

If there is a jukebox at the end of the universe you will find Kentucky Knife Fight between The Stooges and Tom Waits. ... more
