    Lyrics

    The kids are loud, the house it stinks
    He cracks a beer and pours another drink
    Says he needs some time to think
    Hindsight askewed, today's the day
    She'll be home soon, the kids'll be okay
    He finds the keys and drives away

    The barroom reeks a golden stench
    Assume your place upon the weary bench
    You take the hit, don't even flinch
    And the ghosts of friends who've moved along
    Can still be felt but they don't sing along
    To your stubborn, stupid song

    You've been pretending loss could be your gain
    But in the end you're just as lame

    Now where have you been? You've been in the down town again
    And it's the same old thing:
    The flailing fall, the flake and wallow, forsaking friends
    And where have you gone? 'Cause you been gone so damn long.
    Okay, what's wrong,
    Are you the only one to have ever once felt strong and then lost where you belong?

    Some buffer for the years ahead
    Means nothing if you're living dead
    Now where have you gone?

    Your thoughts are dulled, her words are sharp
    Your memory's stained, you make the disconnect between the heart and brain
    You figured loss could be your gain
    You read the contract and you signed your name
    Said goodbye and walked away

    You figured loss could be your gain
    In some fickle lease that's paid in shame
    But in the end you're just as lame
    In sad attempts to pluck some gem
    From down below and deep within
    With hazy eyes and sallow skin you wait to find just

    Now where have you been? You've been in the down town again
    And it's the same old thing:
    The flailing fall, the flake and wallow, forsaking friends
    And where have you gone? 'Cause you been gone so damn long.
    Okay, what's wrong,
    Are you the only one to have ever once felt strong and then lost where you belong?

    And what have you seen? Was it all that you had ever dreamed?
    Is there beauty to be dredged and skimmed in filthy nets
    And lifted from these beery depths?
    To be dragged and strewn upon the shore or simply scraped up off the floor
    Attested to through glass-bottom eyes soft and sad and sore
    Where have you been?
