lyrics

Like an addict always knows the way home
And that there is only one way home
I'm looking for the thing that I know:
A hole in this here time and place
Just big enough to make my escape

I feel stupid and I feel lame
Someone lights a cigarette and I fly straight for the flame
Every party it's the same
I get tangled in their hair
Til they let me go find that there's no there there

And now the curtain's opening
And good luck is all you got
So kiss me once at center stage
Exit left for the parting shot
Exit left for the parting shot

So when your mouth is full of tape
And your mind is primed for escape
Grab your hat and close your cape
Step back once and if you find relief
Turn and run, take no grief
From no one for this
One way home that I know
Where I know I won't be missed

And now the curtain's opening
And good luck is all you got
So kiss me twice at center stage
Exit left for the parting shot
Exit left for the parting shot
