Rum is a Bad Idea

about

There is a tendency, when inebriated, for a certain type of person to feel like things are, let's say, more important than they may actually be in point of fact. This is about that.

lyrics

You can feel sorry for yourself,
standing on the back porch, overlooking
your better self.

If it isn't easier to imagine when we both were here.
Then make me disappear.

And summer is the best time,
to leave it all behind,
when you ask me,
in your smallest voice:

"Will you stay over,
will you stay over,
or do you have to go so soon?"
It isn't a problem until it's a problem for you.

You can clap me on the back,
as you pour us another drink from the endless sea.

But I can hear how scared,
how along you think we can be.
When you say to me:

"Will you stay over,
will you stay over,
or do you have to go so soon?"
It isn't a problem until it's a problem for you.

When you feel sorry for yourself,
take a long walk to another place,
if you can't outpace,

that almost certain feeling you get,
that every thought is such a waste.

And you'll notice that I never said,
the way you feel is out of place.

And when I stay over,
when I stay over,
I don't have to go so soon - I don't work till noon.

And I'm sorry for all we had to drink,
it didn't help me think.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
