In the City

lyrics

When you're in the city everybody watches you.
Is it me or is it everyone's obstructed view?
When you're in the city privacy is overturned.
Is it me or is it everyone who hasn't learned?

But oh, I know.

You can count your blessings one and two, but not to three.
Fill your pockets up but not so much that I'm empty.
You can carry all the books you want and still not read,
just as long as someone else is willing to believe.

But oh, I know.

As I'm waiting I am publicly displayed for you
On a piss-encrusted seat that wasn't made for two.
As the time is moving slowly I am losing count
Of the patience I have left for I am running out.
Oh-oh, Oh-oh-oh

But oh, I know.

But oh -
Patience, I'm running -
But oh -
Patience, I'm running -
But oh -
Patience, I'm running -
But oh -
Patience, I'm running -
But oh -
Patience, I'm running out.
