The closing track of The Trews' 2005 album, Den Of Thieves.

Lyrics:

Hello my name is Ishmael, forget the one about the whale
I'll tell you of a broken-hearted sailor

Maggie took my loyalty, I treated her like royalty
What starts out with such promise ends in failure

Oh my love I can't stand to be alone
But I been drinkin' too much I better go home
And I think here I'm better off alone
But I been thinking too much I better go home

All hail the Queen of cruelty she has duly been anointed
These final words "her majesty" had to say
"He who expects nothing never will be disappointed"
Nothing's what she left me so I guess I'm OK

Oh my love I can't stand to be alone
But I been drinkin' too much I better go home
And I think here we all stand alone
But I been thinking too much I better go home

Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie
Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie

A promise made to a tab unpaid it's home I wade to my bed unmade
A fool to think that I could ever change her
A king upon my barstool throne I vow to never drink alone
I only drink with friends or total strangers

We're all broken hearted here
We're all broken hearted here
We're all broken hearted here
We're all broken

Oh my love I can't stand to be alone
And I been drinkin' too much I better go home
And I think here we all stand alone
But I been thinkin' too much I better go home

I better go home
I better go home
I better go home
I better go home
I better go home
