lyrics

Outside my door it smells like trash.
I've been breathing cigarette ash.
All my friends are home on my porch; I'm here stuck indoors.
I go to the park to drink beer.
Watching all the locals sneer.
I'm no brat, but I'm no tourist.
Humming "Sweet Chin" with a clenched fist.

I sold my summer, but I can't complain
I'll make it back in time to catch one last refrain
Out when the air starts to get cool
No more work and no more fucking gruel

At the gallery alone,
taking photos on my phone
Hoarding catalogues and scraps.
Print ephemera is a trap.
On the train falling asleep
No one there to remind me
Coney Island wake up call
Swarming locust in the fall

I sold my summer, but I can't complain
I'll make it back in time to catch one last refrain
Out when the air starts to get cool
No more work and no more fucking gruel
