Oh no, what have I done?
Oh no, what have I done?
I've got a pain in my heart
A beat that's as loud as a drum

Now, now what do I do?
Now, now what do I do?
You got to get me out of here
Before these brand new clothes aren't new anymore

I go to all the parties
I never have a good time
It's like we're acting out a movie
Mystery and crime
I said I never meant to hurt her
Now everybody's screaming murder

Birthday parties and family affairs
Staying out late and putting on airs
You think I'm listening to you
I'm really not there

Deep, deep inside of my mind
Deep, deep inside of my mind
Lurks a nervous little boy
Obsessing over mystery and crime

    General Commenti always thought this song was about the fake social lives people have, how people create these shallow dramatic lives. on another note, it's great to see joel doing so well; opening for the tragically hip across the country doesn't hurt.
