I grew up alone in a crowed place
My windows so cloudy and common place
Couldn’t see the signs
Everyone else saw
Like a blind man walking willingly through a door

Chained myself to cigarettes and boozy perfume
Trying to hide an elephant in the middle of the room
Got my pipe and slippers
And I use them though the day

Get down
Get low
Don’t think I can survive with a clean window
World wash me up and waste all of my time

I don’t know how or what for
But I’d like to stop it now
And maybe live some more
If I don’t drop her soon
She’s gonna drop me
Like a blind man walking off a cliff willingly
