Lyrics

Unemployed on Monday A bit under the weather The diner is closed today So let’s just lay together Burn the piles of clothes on the floor And break the tea cups too We will dance in the ash We will dance in the glass And then start anew…. No light came in last night And the chemicals turned sour And the earth revolved around the sun While we slumbered through the hours Two stray cats fall in love under the moon We dig through the trash and chase all the rats And do as the stray cats do We did through the trash and chase all the rats And do as the stray cats do The weeds grow rampant in this seedy side of town The more they grow, the more you try to cut them down So we dive underneath the blue You won’t come back for air…. The coffee is as bitter as the waitress who brings it And I think there is a fly in your soup And underneath the fluorescent lights Your eyes are less and less hazel And more and more chartreuse The weeds grow rampant in the seedy side of town The more they grow the more you try to cut them down So we dive underneath the blue You won’t come back for air…..
