I've been just hanging around, waiting and waiting for something to happen. And one by one everyone I know will move into the city. I wanna meet you by the tall buildings but I can't afford the train ride. My sadness is self-absorbed. I have been drowning in that same blue sink for years. On your birthday I'm too upset to even pick up the telephone. I complain that I'm alone. I've been in love with my illness for far too long. Hello, hello, it's me and I'm feeling far away again. Hello, hello, how low can you go? I sink with you in a red wine ocean. I drink with you when no one else is around. No one will see the distortion you see when you stand in the mirror and wish you were somebody else. You know I get lonely babe, how low can you go? I call you and say hey how low can you go?
