lyrics

Drank The Ocean Dry

I awoke, beside a phone booth
lying on the cold dark ground
sun was coming up and the shit was going down

I don't really, really wanna fight
baby, baby put down that butcher knife
never meant for nothing, I can hear the sirens coming now

You and I drank the ocean dry
you and I drank the ocean dry
turn and wave goodbye through my bloodshot eyes
you and I drank the ocean dry

I'll take your beer, out into the night
These cops don't find the situation all right
We’re lost, not found… but someday, someday I'll come around

Now I’m helping my lady through a window
into Smith's, into Smith's old shack
Mrs. Officer’s hot on our heels, she's got a pistol, a pistol of black

You and I drank the ocean dry
you and I drank the ocean dry
turn and wave goodbye through my bloodshot eyes
you and I drank the ocean dry
