A Moment Alone

Track 12 from the album Letters to Cyril Connolly.

You put your face on
But you forgot to put everything else on
Nature gave you what you need
To succeed
You'll going to freeze to death
In the dark in the middle of the night
Unless you find someone as dumb as you
To stand next to
A moment alone
In the nightclub
No one can hear a word you're saying
This must be the worst good time you've ever had
Drowning in the din
Smoking like your life depends on it
Skinny tastes as good as nothing feels
