The Best Room
Lyrics:

let loose with your charms
go reckless unharmed
we all signed the card
get well, but don't you try too hard
the lessons unlearned
oh this meeting it's adjourned
these western concerns
hold my place in line while I take your turn

to the empty balconies we serenade
all the playgrounds where them kids don't get to play
dirty parkies went and chased them all away
to the game consoles to fatten

the best room they have
is the last room you'd want
the bathroom's outside
police tape is tied
to the door knobs from rooms
nine through thirty-two
aw! these western concerns
we beg while we chew

these western concerns are all I ever really learned to be concerned with

but don't you don't you know
it's hard
feeling tired
every time
that you try
ain't it hard
feeling tired
all the time

the family living upstairs
must have a fleet of rider lawn mowers
the novelist to my right's
convinced that every woman's a whore
but he bothers me time and again
to set him up with my very best friends, and I say what?
says he doesn't restate
but he will not shut up

well don't you don't you know
it's hard
feeling tired
every time
that you try
ain't it hard
feeling tired
all the time

well don't you don't you know

I am gonna bury my head in the woods right now
scan for some mycelia and bring a little back to town

well don't you don't you know it's hard
feeling tired
every time
that you try
ain't it hard
feeling tired
all the time

go reckless unharmed
yep the shut-ins they're well armed
well we all led the charge
until we ran aground in our party barge
and every little gift was just one more part of their grift
oh yeah we know it
oh yeah we know it

the best news that we got
was some dumb hokum we'd all bought
let's go reckless feeling great
we're the sexiest of all primates
let's let loose with our charms
shake our ass and wave our arms
all going apeshit
