lyrics

Neon covered nights (neon covered nights)
Slipping out to sweeps of cigarettes and song (long gone)
Sing on (and on) to the bleary breach of dawn

(Sultry swinging voice) sultry swinging voice
crooning out to those long dead before their years (careers)
cold beer (swell beer) will always sweeten bitter tears

No nothing (but nothing) not nothing at all
Compares to hustling restless dreams in this old spot
(but nothing) not nothing at all
Compares to Marlow's suave veneer once at the top
(but nothing) not nothing at all
Stops the Viennese amateurs left out to rot

Brandy in the drawer (brandy in the drawer)
take a swig and think to hero's time in war (the corp)
Once more (no more) a gun I shall implore

(Light flooding in) Light flooding in
through shuttered blinds you tell your tale of wounded woe (so low)
and I know (he knows) troubled dames just can't let go

No nothing (but nothing) not nothing at all
Compares to hustling restless dreams in this old spot
(but nothing) not nothing at all
Compares to Marlow's suave veneer once at the top
(but nothing) not nothing at all
Stops the Viennese amateurs left out to rot

Nobody knows (nobody knows)
The insurance game has laid it's claim tonight (that`s right)
A fight (white light) will pay the widow twice

(Pour quoi Jef) pour quoi Jef.
No bullets left cept ones in my chest (no vest)
I rest (protest) forever cool as… ICE!
