This is insufferable music nerdery, but I have to ask. Does this:

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick

Sound kinda like this:

Yeah I lay down a while
And I look at my hotel wall
And I'm phoning a cab
'Cause my stomach feels small
There's a taste in my mouth
And it's no taste at all

To anyone else? I guess there are only so many song lyrics you can write about "so and so is getting on so and so instead of on me" before they start to sound similar. But I could totally see the Killers being David Bowie fans -- it's in the gospel-chorus backing vocals. I'm just as glad they didn't try to include the part about the bipperty-bopperty hat, though. I mean, bipperty-bopperty? Hello, 1970? Your slang called; it wants a ride back home.

Oh, here and there. But mostly there. There's pretty nice this time of year, you know.

Well, it's weird for me. Knock it off with the traveling already.
