  • Stepping into the town
    Ignore the stink of burning leather
    'Cause you're young and right down
    Radio sings, cool life forever
    And depending on the weather, you'll be there
    Your shadow tall, you lean against the wall
    Waiting on the call
    Waiting on the call that will set it out

    At the top of the hour, meet me at Cappuccino City
    Roaches climbing the wall, coffee is cold
    Service is shitty, in neon light you look so pretty
    As you say
    Your race is run, no longer having fun
    You're not the only one
    Not the only one with short memory
    You're not the only one with short memory

    FM on the stereo
    Belgians in the Congo
    Short memory
    Cappuccino City Writer/s: Francis Keaney, Joseph Clement Russo, Joseph Kevin White, Marcel Tussie, Thomas Russo
