It's 11:30 in the morning, and I woke up late today
Oh, I hope my roommate isn't mad
But, that, she will never say
Last night I can't remember, but I know I did say yes
To a question that I lied about
When I should have made her guess

Walked in there for breakfast and was greeted about the operative ex
Oh, I said she told me when it first happened
But must have forgotten in the test

Now things might not seems as clear, but the drinks help me to relate
To a group I'm separated from
To the point of distress and hate
Now I may come across as angry, and I'd say that you are correct
But, who I am to judge you
And the opinion for you to check

The little bits of our un-foreseen future is not for me
Oh, I know that I will create one
And that, I will leave

The scene, it was so crazy, and I barely recall any at all
Oh, the city streets, the lights at night
End up to be our last call
Now all you angel-headed hipsters, this our one last chance to try
Before we are pushed into
Our inevitable lives to die

And when you get ready to jump there better be someone to ctach
You as you fall through life you better realize fast
That you are like everybody else
