lyrics

Tequila takeoff. Tacate landing.
Sorry about the centerpiece. Thanks for understanding.
Soft salesmen. Hard branding. Campari. Commissions.
I was sitting in the kitchen trying to guess where she was living now.
Hotel room in Houston with the shades against the sunshine?
Or maybe still in Scranton like it's 1999?
When I saw her rolling thru with the Entitlement Crew.
I wasn't all that into it but there was nothing I could do about it.

Now here's the church. Here's the steeple.
I like the party favors but I hate the party people.
Got distracted by the chorus where the kids all sang along.
Move to the rouge set. I always really liked that song.

You like that song too. I know that you do.
I saw you mouthing all the words
When you didn’t know I was watching you.
Everything is brittle and it's breaking apart.
Your sister's in Seattle and she's sleeping with the Sharps.
I remember we used to play in this park.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for understanding.
Can't you see how I feel a bit abandoned?
Never got to say goodbye to you.
Give my best to the Entitlement Crew.

Tacate landing. Tequila takeoff.
Colfax cookout. Pillsbury bakeoff.
Too many cracks in the bathroom. Too many kooks in the kitchen.
It would probably be easier if I knew where she was living now.

I know you probably feel the same way as I feel
Like I'm not sure we can pull off such an intricate deal.
Now all of it's killer but it's coming up quick.
And your brother's in Boston and he's acting like a dick.
I remember back before we knew he was sick.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for understanding.
Can't you see how I feel a bit abandoned?
Never got to say goodbye to you.
Give my best to the Entitlement Crew.

Distant systems in the dark and people dancing.
Thanks for listening. Thanks for understanding.
Nodding off to The American Ruse.
Give my best to the Entitlement Crew.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for understanding.
Tequila takeoff. Tacate landing.
Never got to say goodbye to you.
Give my best to the Entitlement Crew.
