lyrics

I’m just a key on your chain
a guest who can’t stay
I’m a stone’s throw away
It’s just a matter of pride
For the new young threats
Who come veiled like a bride
Airtight as a Ponzi scheme
Send me up the ladder
To some captain of industry
Consorting with parties unknown
You know that no one wants to be alone

All the people that you meet
Out there on the hot concrete
All getting nostalgic for simpler times
If everyone knows, don’t call it a secret
Let me in on the gory details
Go call a reporter to spin
The physics of impossible things

O these endless days
Lurching forward in runaway parade
Patience is wearing thin
The tap keeps dripping
As a pendulum swings
Even if we’re not at war
If it’s all just conquest
I need a little victory
Come on, hold me close again
These are the glory days
In your cold extremities.

All the people that you meet
Out there on the hot concrete
All getting nostalgic for simpler times
If everyone knows, don’t call it a secret
Let me in on the gory details
Go call a reporter to spin
The physics of impossible things
Pressure going to break my bones
Surrounded by parties unknown
