Didn’t somebody say it was over?
Then why you still hanging around?
And you’ve shopped out all your secrets to every
Sleazebag in this town--
A circle that was drawn by you
In the shame of having nothing to do.

In every police car come creeping up by you
Is a dark and mysterious face, out of mind, out of place;
A cold heart to drag you down and out of the way.

And if there’s any hope of leaving here,
Than why you still hanging around?
And the eaves of every stop-shop are pouring down
Pitchers, all for you.
The barometer never bends
For the kid who doesn’t have any friends.

A dozen nebulous alarms play to the sound
Of the night becoming the night when it feels like the day,
The silence to put you down and out of the way.

Didn’t somebody say it was over?
