And that’s a horrible drag
The bedtime prince
Is caught up in the machine
A drunken castaway

Collapsing now into your own wasteland
Take them shake them out in the water

I see them
The wedding machines
In old gold photographs

With a glass in your hand
And the life in your head
They just don’t know you
Like I do
