Stranded out on 6th and Mission Man I gotta find my way home Walk it on up to Union Square Where no one ever feels alone Then I take the train out to the beach Where everything's on fire Everyone I know and their brother's there Man I can't get much higher Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Waking up on a Saturday Like 3 in the afternoon Walked half the damn city last night Man shouldn't have left so soon Started the day off in the park And ended in the avenues No on wants to be there after it gets dark So we all walk home in twos Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone (Oh yeah) Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone Rockin that city tone The stains on the pavement The Smog clogging up the air Loving every paycheck Hating climbing up ever stair A store on every corner A whore at every stoplight too I love every dirty part of the city You know I do

Hard up and hammered Face down of the floor Five years of wasted time What's another weekend more I'm a constant headache Hanging on to a mistake Barely able to fake it Trying hard to impress Five days of workplace hardship And problems I won't address So just gimme a reason Yeah you know I'm ready to get some Cracks climbing up the facade I know I need more than I got I wish I could crawl to a hole in the ground Somewhere I could go where the world's not around And the world's all around when you're down Crisis averted I guess we're safe for now My ego's a patch work mock up- Of a future I just can't figure out You say you got a few problems Well yeah you even looking to solve them Cracks climbing up the facade I know I need more than I got I wish I could crawl to a hole in the ground Somewhere I could go where the world's not around And the world's all around Yeah the world's all around when you're down

Hey I really need this now Caus I think that I just found What I've always wanted And it's got nothing to do with All of those things I said Sometimes I get these ideas in my head You know that we make a good team honey I think you always knew And yeah, I know, I should apologize to you If we can only start living life a little better than we do Maybe then we could really tell the truth Now please just leave me alone You know how I can lose my cool when I get home And it's got nothing to do with Anything you said It's always me It's always me stuck in my head You know that we make a good team honey I think you always knew And yeah I know I should apologize to you If we can only start living life a little better than we do maybe then we could really tell the truth Caus we're growing old And I wanna go home And lately I feel my age like the heel of a boot- On the neck of my dreams And I'm wondering if I'm only wasting my time trying to say Only things that I mean I've tried to tell you a million times you should know I still feel like shit But it's been twenty odd years I think it's time to get over it You know that I'm not a strong man honey I think you always knew Yeah I know I should apologize to you If we can only start living life a little better than we do Maybe then we could really tell the truth

Little things it don't take a big blow up Little things crawl right under your skin Grit your teeth and put up a front Little things ruin all of the fun Little words come as sharp as your teeth The ones you say and the ones that you mean Smile wide while you put up a front Little words ruin all of the fun I'm a passive, a work-a-day captive And you're an overly dramatic King Kong I'm and icicle and you're a flame-thorowah Every day you ruin all of the fun

I wanna be a simpleton Sit and have a beer every day And I wanna be a philosopher Thinking how I might find a way And I wanna be a good person Give it all up to charity But I wanna be a selfish rock star Take the whole world just for me And I'm not some masochistic jerk Who would kill anyone just to get his way But I've got some plans I plan to keep And I'll tell you one time They're here to stay Everyone's looking to get some Looking for some... Well I wanna be a healthy person Getting exercise and eating my greens But I wanna be a lazy asshole On a sofa hooked to a screen And I wanna be a successful man I wanna be making that money But I wanna be a immaterial monk With his head up his ass and his mind in the sky I wanna be a... Everyone's looking to get some Looking for some...

Oh I hustle and I bustle and I shuffle my way cross town Going meet a woman trying to keep all my lunch meat down And anyone who's anywhere is wanting a piece of me now Cause I'm living on the surface while I'm working for the underground Oh they're yammering and clamboring demanding I tell them how Oh a freak like me Could ever hope to be Something more Than just a bore Well what for Oh I spill out my guts and I hop on an eastbound train Just keep thinking about the record while I'm choking on my higher brain And anyone who's anywhere are all gonna feel the same As we all get together and talk about our imminant fame I mean I know it sounds crazy but it really isn't all that insane Cause I'm right here and I don't fear Cheapo knock offs or taunts and jeers And I know Yeah I know Guess I should go And I guess we'll all find out Eventually they'll have to show us how But I'd rather know right now They're stalling us, they're trying to sell us out And nobody is anywhere in any position now To lecture me or set me free without A million pounds in broken mouths to tout And can't you see you might as well be Just another asshole just like me A quiet doubt A face in the crowd Let's make it loud.
