"And you can't breathe without coughing at daytime. Neither can I.
So what do you say?/Your coffin or mine? -Matt Skiba
I've always loved the climax, or final line, of Alkaline Trio's "Blue In The Face," where Skiba asks, "Your coffin or mine?" A brilliant pun that plays perfectly with the other coughing our fateful lovers engage in.
Interestingly enough, I was googling the lyrics to this song when I came across this classic Lou Reed interview, ironically titled, "Blue In The Face." I'll leave that right here for your enjoyment.
