He says "i don't think you understand, man.
I'm leaving I'm making my plans.
Away from these filthy rotting walls.
Away from the reach of god damned city hall"
I've been hearing these words in my sleep
I've been seeing these words in my dreams
He says "you know this place don't sound quite right to me"
I snapped back "this sounds like everywhere right now"
Says he's heard stories of greater grander grandeur out there
That there's bigger, better than these beggars could hope to measure
I've been spinning these circles
Listening for answers
But the answers dont speak up
With the questions so loud
And this is what we get for
Listening to the same lines countless times
"Can you turn that up a little louder?"
He's screaming from the fire escape
He says "I think something changed out here tonight"
As I make my way outside
And now its pouring out my eyes
What day, what time
And now i'm pouring out my lies
Oh, where have we been?
I've been hearing these words on repeat
I've been seeing these words in my sleep
