I woke up between crisp white sheets with a dirty conscience | It took me a while to remember where I was | The motif on the cup on the night stand put me straight | Drawing back the curtains I looked out across the city | The nipple slip of a sallow sun peeped out from behind an unfamiliar skyline | It was dusk - I'd slept all day | Leaning out the hotel window I could see a hundred reality tunnels intersecting in the evening twilight | Psychic cave-ins outside the fast food franchises and the private clubs | Ideological escape artists being dragged screaming from the dogma dirt of forbidden perimeters | Early bird hookers offering their entres to the late workers | The suburbs a long way away for both of them | Puritans of every hue and shade hating what they become the most | The coin flips and we all take our bets | Everyone's got their price | What's yours? | Oh, the bed mates we choose to stop ourselves from dreaming | The sickly melodies we sing to drown out the screaming
