Before I leave I turn on the TV
'cause it's just too god damn lonely
Get home to be the only
Man alive in the whole damn city

I ride to work on the downtown brown line
Train car smells of dollar cheap wine
Feel like a rat in laboratory confines
Jesus on the corner says we've seen the first signs

So tear down the opera house!
There's nothing there for me only beauty,
and I don't think that's very appropriate here

And as I walk I watch the pavement
New cracks since my last tax payment
Think I'll bring down the government
But I'd rather go home and get back into bed

Tear down the opera house!
There's nothing there for me, only beauty
and I don't think that's very appropriate here
