LETRA

'Cafe Society'

Cafe society meets in front of Pete's
Goes on about the goings on up and down the street
Talk about evictions, talk about the dogs
The drunkards in the dog park and once and future fog
The caliphate of perverts, the flight of refugees
Expanding ranks of homeless and the disappearing bees

Cafe society - a sip of community
Cafe society - misery loves company
Hey, it's a way to start the day

Cafe society talking up a storm
Talk about the Nasdaq and the racing form
Talk about the opera, talk about cars
Talk about the desert and the colonies on Mars
Talk about tsunamis and the crazies with their guns
Crazy-ass policemen shooting everything that runs

Cafe society - a sip of community
Cafe society - misery loves company
Hey, it's a way to start the day

Talk about beauty, talk about disease
The supersize container ships that ply the swelling seas
Somebody went to heaven, left some parts in the bay
But he's a friending of a friending - I don't know him anyway
Flapping lips of flatulence bellow "vote for me"
Everything is spinning in the looming entropy

Cafe society - a sip of community
Cafe society - misery loves company
Hey, it's a way to start the day

Cafe society - a sip of community
Cafe society - misery loves company
Hey, it's a way to start the day
