Written by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan<br><br><br>I like my town with a little drop of poison<br>Nobody knows they're lining up to go insane<br>I'm all alone, I smoke my friends down to the filter<br>But I feel much cleaner after it rains<br><br>She left in the fall, that's her picture on the wall<br>She always had that little drop of poison<br><br>Did the devil make the world while god was sleeping<br>Someone said you'll never get a wish from a bone<br>Another wrong good-bye and a hundred sailors<br>That deep blue sky is my home<br><br>She left in the fall, that's her picture on the wall<br>She always had that little drop of poison<br><br>A rat always knows when he's in with weasels<br>Here you lose a little every day<br><br>I remember when a million was a million<br>They all have ways to make you pay<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
