lyrics

Come back to the table when you can

Polish your trumpet boy,
And iron that shirt,
Shine the dust from your shoes,
This job is mostly showing up.

Everybody talking "Here and Now",
But we are arrogant, we're young,
Let me see you talk so lound,
When the pain comes.

Come back to the table,
Come back to the table,
Come back to the table when you can.

I can't tell if he is stupid,
Or numb on Xanax,
You'd have to be a little stupid,
Not to feel a little panicked

We're all typing on our tiny screens,
Present company ignored,
If this is table manners,
We are shitting on the forks.

Come back to the table,
Come back to the table,
Come back to the table when you can

Did I hear that you are moving,
To Paris or Budapest?
To perfect your ennui,
Update your status there instead?

I wasn't always this mean,
Or judgmental,
No I had a little more compassion,
Before I left.


Come back to the table,
Come back to the table,
Come back to the table when you can

Hey, I've got my disguise,
And I know that you've got yours,
It's not black and white,
What's wrong or right,
It's a little more obscure.
So polish your trumpet boy,
And iron that shirt,
Shine the dust from your shoes,
This Life is mostly showing up.

Come back to the table,
Come back to the table,
Come back to the table when you can.
