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.

But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Stops to hustling restless dreams, in this old spot,
But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Compares to Marlow's suave veneer, once at the top,
But nothing, no nothing, no 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 woe (so low),
and I know (he knows), troubled dames just can't let… go.

But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Stops to hustling restless dreams, in this old spot,
But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Compares to Marlow's suave veneer, once at the top,
But nothing, no nothing, no 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 Jeff) Pour quoi Jeff,
No bullets left ‘cept the one, in my chest (no vest),
I rest (protest), forever cool as… ice.

But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Stops to hustling restless dreams, in this old spot,
But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Compares to Marlow's suave veneer, once at the top,
But nothing, no nothing, no nothing at all,
Stops the Viennese amateurs left out to… rot.
