This is a song I wrote when one of my very best friends was going through a really horrible time, and was numbing that situation with alcohol. I decided that the best thing I could do, in a sign of not-very-sensible solidarity was to join him on that drinking front, and in doing so completely messed up my own shit. However, it was still a time that brought us really close together, and now things are a load better.

We’ve sat at dirty tables for longer than I care to know,
We’ve danced on dirty tabletops, to rhythm, slow rhythm, swung low.
And we’ve polished up our faces, pretended that we wanted to go.
Out, to the night, to the places seen through the window.

Those are the hours that we’ll be glad that we drank away.
With all the bottles we gathered on the terms that we’d get dry some day.
I fall backwards and travel upon a path to the same old place.
Drag my corpse through midnight, through the hours, to the set of our ways.

When we’re struck by daylight, and yet that weariness remains.
And our mornings and our nights are just a single frame away.
And the forces that guide us from the one glass to the next,
Will be the same that guide us straight back to our beds.

And I, I’d like to help you mend.
Yeah I, I’d like to help you mend.
Yeah I, I’d like to help you mend.
So long as it mends me.
So long as we are we.
