I learned to drive in the city
That dies all day
Where you learn to race the chaos
And the blues is just the price you pay

Where the nights are just the punctuation marks
Between the lines nobody reads
And it’s hard to tell the lightning from the sparks
In a town that never bleeds

The sounds of the honest at heart
And the light of free
Keeps me awake and alive
Under times like these

Come out to your window
And ook out through the pane
Come lightly to your window and, honey
Look out through the pane

See the party favors, they dance around the sewers
And wash out through the drain

Running under newsprint bridges
Down through the main
The party favors, they dance around the sewer
And wash out through the drain

Streetlights, they flicker and fade
Another heart has taken its place
I’m standing on the corner, sinking in
A dumb look on my face
I’m standing on the corner thinking it
Is not just this place

I’m a madhouse
