John met me down on the boulevard
I cry on his shoulder 'cause life is hard
The waves came in over my head
What you been up to my baby?
Haven't seen you 'round here lately
All of the guys tell me lies but you don't
You just crack another beer
And pretend that you're still here

This is how to disappear
This is how to disappear

Joe met me down at the training yard
The cuts on his face 'cause he fought too hard
I know he's in over his head
But I love that man like nobody can
He moves mountains and pounds them to ground again
I watch the guys getting high as they fight
For the things that they hold dear
To forget the things they fear

This is how to disappear
This is how to disappear

Now it's been years since I left New York
I got a key and two cats in the yard
A California sun and the movie stars
I watch the skies getting light as I write
As I think about those years
As I whisper in your ear
I'm always gon' to be right here
No one's going anywhere

I like how Bill comments at the end of this song that the title of the album is Norman...something...Rockwell. I'm no prude, but the DJs on SiriusXM always make it a point to say Norman "Fu#k!ng" Rockwell, which can be offensive to my Uber passengers. At least it makes me cringe a little. It would just be as easy to say the album is NFR like it actually states on the album cover.
 
'Effing' works for me!

That's actually Duke Nicholson, Jack's grandson. There is some resemblance there, too, I think.

Nice new song! Sounds extremely familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.....
 
It's a pretty traditional chord progression, which may be why it sounds familiar.

Sure, who wouldn't want to hate on Lana Del Rey, but what a lovely smallish gem of a depressing song. But depressing in the good way, right? But why is she gripping Bill Hader? I'd be envious, but I'm more a Fred Armisen kinda gal.
