Sitting At The Bar Again

Hell, woman,
I'm gonna need you
one day.

Give me a drink,

Baby child
of sweetness
and half-sincerity,
you ain't been gettin'
honey whore
of Babylon.

I've come to laughing
at the most horrible misfortune.
I've learned to bring
to your door.

It pleases me
to see it die,
and it pains me
to see it gasp
in silence.

My heart is shaking
and my mind
is breaking,

Do you understand
what it
that you have lost?

Son of a bitch,
give me a drink.
