Come outside and we'll take a walk
Laugh outloud, no one will talk
Go barefoot and never feel obscene
There's a girl over there by the windowsill
And it looks like she got some time to kill
And she says, "Nothing really matters"
And what if it did?
But don't think that it's so strange
Yeah, and don't act so surprised
Well, she's quite content in a State Street state of mind

There's a house nextdoor where they never sleep
And there's music coming from up the street
It's the song you know and so you sing the tune
And we try to talk above the den about the world and the shape its in
And then we laugh 'cause nothing seems to matter today
But don't think that that it's so strange
And worthless in your eyes
Well, we're quite content in a State Street state of mind

And the words speak the joy
That underlies the pain
The pain
The pain
The pain

Well, come outside and we'll take a walk
The years fly by
The plans trail off
And you think of a time before you lost your way
And the music played and the man displayed
And the girl over there by the window would say
Nothing really matters anyway
You dont think it's so strange
Yeah, you don't act so surprise
Well, she's quite content in a State Street state of mind
And he's quite content in a State Street state of mind
Well, we're all content in State Street state of mind

    General Commentstate street in baton rouge, louisiana. the varsity, chimes, and sorrano's all have live music and you can hear it play coming up the street. and everyone's content in a state street state of mind.
