Day 10 of fun-a-day 2015.
Inspired by "Omaha" by Tapes 'n Tapes


That'll just about do it for me
Been staring all night
At the skyscraper lights
And listening to Kid A repeatedly

And you called me today
When the smoke in the attic was driving me insane
We did three or four rum shots in two separate states
And I climbed up the stairs
While my roommate's band played

That'll just about do it for me
Not picking up for you
I can't stay out till 2
Yeah tonight I'm just going to sleep

Tonight I'll be lame
And I'll make myself stay
And I'll lie wide awake
While the sound of the bass
And the drums in the basement
All make the house shake
And the TV hums, bitter
About all my mistakes

Well tonight
