I'm all messed up again I can't hold this coffee cup, but then it's so cold The Plaza's spinning 'round I'm dizzy from driving up and down The Scene's section's bands gigs lists all jam-band hybrids That speaker's all but blown it so loud in here at least at home there's no crowd I don't know anyone at least at home there's grass and warm rum the scene sucks you in but sucks when your within What'cha wanna do? What'cha wanna do? I don't know... Oh, let's call it a night this quite hopeless plight and there's melodies inside my head ascending and descending next weekend comes bringing all brand-new doldrums What'cha wanna do? What'cha wanna do? I don't know...

They keep their eyes on you anesthetize you try to define you wine and dine you nickel and dime you But for once in your life you found someone so be good to yourself though you've only just begun they're wrong when they say "you're too young" do what you like go where you please with whomever whenever you please whatever They won't know that they're wrong 'till your older a generation impatient and bored on vacation don't believe them when they say "you're too young" stay out all night take what you like be whomever whatever you like whatever They'll television-ize patronize you try to "upsize" you say "don't do as I do but do as I say" for a steady job and steady pay there's sacrifices and vices all the way and a premature grey please, don't do it You're too young you're too young you're too young They say "do it like this" they say "do it like that" like that and like this oh, what're you gonna miss?

Mixed up kids mixing drinks at church mixers virginal catholic boys and lesbian sisters do "The Collapse" and learn of love through rude whispers oh, woe is me Dim wifey, tethered, met her husband who wed her no worse or better for the fit of her sweater, but Anais Nin's letters led her to studded leather oh, woe is me oh, woe is me Punk rock poser poster-boys playing they're hard while hairless, barely legal teens smoke and deal cards the vanguard of the avant-garde or dull retards? I think I know I joined this band 'cause I heard I could get some it was a lie, a decade's past since I last come I put my anguish in song here's a new one it's called: "Oh! Woe is Me"

Listen, listen Boxes in boxes the foxes have built and guard the hen house Rain free and comfy a waived fee for range-free applicants right now Listen, listen What's that in the distance? Is there something outside the door? I hear it coming closer it's a sound I haven't heard before Tick-tock the house clock plays the cock and crows to greet the new day Buzzing hens fussing a rushing then nothing but the foxes' teeth Listen, listen What's that in the distance? Is there something outside the door? I hear it coming closer it's a sound I haven't heard before

The Passersby All the passersby and people in the shops look at us as if to say "please just go away" it doesn't matter 'cause they don't know what we've got they don't know how far and wide we searched to be side by side Through the alleys to our poorer-quarter haunt we're all alone at last and we've the last laugh as they work themselves to death for things they want all though we may be poor we've so much more Ain't no church bells will ring and just as well we'll do it as we please wear it on our sleeves of hospice pleather and come what may we're gonna stay together The world rushes by all around but we don't see a thing or hear a sound we're lost tonight under starlight and in all the love that we've found and come what may we're gonna stay together together together, forever together
