That Was Just A Lie

I need a bath, a shower, and a bed
They told me it was going to be a short day
That was just a lie
I say
That was just a lie

My anxiety is killing me
They told me not to worry
Soon I’d be set free
That was just a lie
I say
That was just a lie

Told me my plane was boarding
In 15 minutes
Two hours later, sitting at the bar
With my new friends drinking Guinness
And chasing Jaeger

I stagger on the plane
They ask me if I’m wasted
I smile and say I’m straight
I just had a little tasted
That was just a lie
I say
That was just a lie

I woke up feeling better
Till I threw up on my sweater
The crew said we’re so happy
You flew with us
Kalamazoo looked just like Timbuktu
From the windows of that hotel shuttle bus

So I won’t try drinking the next time I fly
That is just a lie
I say
That is just a lie
