lyrics

Of all the stupid schmucks here getting drunk you asked me
over a vodka, ginger ale, with a little lime and grenadine
to identify the line where love is no longer worth fighting for,
like a sign lighting up red in the dark over the door.
Well, I say woe to those arriving in such armor to the dance.
Heavy are the arms there holding weapons in their hands.
It’s hard to feel somebody’s heart through a bullet proof vest,
so if it’s come to this before with others, I’d suggest

It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.

But I’m not saying that to gaslight you; don’t take it all yourself –
the back and forth, the wave the sand, the swinging of the bell.
It’s you or them, or a bit of both. Knowing only goes so far.
You are you, and they are they, and I’m some idiot at the bar
where the drinks no longer serve you, and the place will always close,
and like tipsy trees dropping their leaves so too we drop our clothes.
We are one hundred percent responsible only for getting it through our brain
that everything is just exactly what you make of how you’re made.

It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
It’s true.
You
are the common denominator.
