“And if I made a fool, if I made a fool, if I made a fool on the road, there’s always this. And if I’m sued into submission, I can still come home to this.”

And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay
That’s how it
starts

And so it starts
You switch the engine on
We set controls for the heart of the sun
One of the ways we show our age

Then it’s the memory of our betters
That is keeping us on our feet

Oh, you’re talking forty-five turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, but it’s better when we pretend


Except in parts
When the moral kicks in

Though when we’re running out of the drugs
And the conversation’s winding away

Oh, you drop the first ten years just as fast as you can
And the next ten people who are trying to be polite
When you’re blowing eighty-five days in the middle of France
Yeah, I know it gets tired only where are your friends tonight?

And if I made a fool, if I made a fool
If I made a fool on the road, there’s always this
And if I’m sewn into submission

And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand
You can sleep on the plane or review what you said
When you’re drunk and the kids leave impossible tasks
You think over and over, “hey, I’m finally dead”

Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand
You look contorted on yourself your ridiculous prop
You forgot what you meant when you read what you said
And you always knew you were tired, but then


Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight
?

If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
