I'd take a bus I'd take a train
I'd take the hit an ear I'd maim
I'd sell my soul I'd change my name
to hear you say you feel the same

a time to cheat to double cross
a time to break to steal to cuss
some lack direction then there's us
o we just sit here looking lost

I came back home I joined a band
I signed petitions lent a hand
a bain-marie by day I manned
from my ambition I ran I ran

o how you stare so vacantly
just take those off inside you'll see
although we're prone to disagree
no it's not them you want it's me

now wherever I go there is us
in socks we stole from business class
the shirt that fits the scene untouched
I'll only change it if I must

never remember what I've done
it's been the same since I was born
the keys I've lost the friends I've won
just turn my back and I'll be gone
