"Alley Cat" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
I'm taking new answers to questions of yesterday
I've seen you slide away
When you cannot hold me, then I saw
Colors that ruin your way

Taken what you are yeah you will get real far

But don't you know that I'm an Alley Cat
and I stay home and dream my life away
You know that I belong to that club you hate
Yeah we're doing just great

Running to your ends girl, when cracks line the words you say
High as the sky you seem so safe
So I'll take all the shame for you love
And you breathe what we make

Taken where you are my babe you should get really far

    General Commentto drownsoda, he's an alley cat because he belongs somewhere else but instead is staying at home, and hence dreaming life away.
