As we were taking outside it was cold we were shivering yet
                                         Warmed by the subject matter my wife is in the next room
                                     We've been having troubles you know please don't tell her or
                                               But I need to talk to somebody you said

                                   "Wouldn't it be a shame if I knew how great I was five minutes
before I died
                                          I'd be filled with such regret before I took my last breath"

                               And I said "you're willing to tell me this now and you're not going to
die any time soon"
                                        And I said I haven't been eating chicken or meat or anything
                                       And you said yes but you've been wearing leather and laughed
                                    And said we're at the top of the food chain and yes you're a fine

                                       And I cringed I was hoping I was hoping we could heal each othe
                                    I was hoping I was hoping we could be raw together we left the
                                      Where the head waiter (in his 60's) said "good-bye sir thank you
                                     Thank you for your business sir you're successfull and
established sir
                                    And we like the frequency with which you dine here sir and your

                                           And when I walked by they said "thank you too dear"
                                I was all pigtails and cords and there was a day when I would've said
something like
                                           "hey dude I could buy and sell this place so kiss it"
                                               I too once thought I was owed something
                                         I was hoping I was hoping we could challenge each other
                                   I was hoping I was hoping we could crack each other up I too
thought that
                                     When proved wrong I lost somehow I too once thought life was
                                               It's a cycle really you think i'm withdrawing
