I don't want to be the narcissist
that nabs you when the carcass is
still warm and bloody on the disco floor
I can't see past the part I stumbled on
that friend of yours was there now gone
and I'm afraid that in a song or two I'm yours

now I just want to take a minute
just hold it right there
am I the kissed-up concierge of a hotel built
on a ten second stare
because between the smoke and the dark I can hardly see for myself
if you're oh so pretty or if you're just looking at what's next on the shelf

I don't wanna be that man after
quipping quick for leftover laughter
the room may be getting full, the walls caving in
but there's not a light that they could shine that will
make me see the path to being that guy

you got me on the edge of your finger, in a loop
throwing me from your wrist like a hula hoop
I'm platonic plutonium, agreeing to be dangerous
on the precipice of the picture, my profile clinging to the sides, or edges

now I just want to take a minute
just hold it right there
am I the kissed-up concierge of a hotel built
on a ten second stare
because between the smoke and the dark I can hardly see for myself
if you're oh so pretty or if you're just looking at what's next on the shelf

I don't wanna be that man after
quipping quick for leftover laughter
the room may be getting full, the walls caving in
but there's not a light that they could shine that will
make me see the path to being that guy

there was that time a couple of weeks ago
when we split that can of something
and you wondered if you loved him at all

now I just want to take a minute
just hold it right there
am I the kissed-up concierge of a hotel built
on a ten second stare
because between the smoke and the dark I can hardly see for myself
if you're oh so pretty or if you're just looking at what's next on the shelf

I don't wanna be that man after
quipping quick for leftover laughter
the room may be getting full, the walls caving in
but there's not a light that they could shine that will
make me see the path to being that guy

Heh, this reminds me of circumstances I haven't experienced in such a long time.
