Listen to the sound bites of your neighbors
Through the paper thin walls
Making variations on their stories
Told with southern drawls

Look into the dustbin
Pick through rubbish
Finding clues to bare
Ponder their discussion
Noshed oh muffins
Torn up papers spared

If you value your own skin
Stop yourself from listening in

Lovelorn letters
Tarred and feathered
We are on display
Private lives
Have all been scattered
Mysteries gone away

Following traces for disgraces
You have crossed the line
Walking in shadows searching
Secret places it's a sign
You've got ears but so have I
Listen close as you walk by

Sticking your ears
Into affairs of others has a price
The stakes are higher than you think
It's time to roll the dice
Won't be so lucky this time around
You'll disappear not a trace to be found

    My OpinionI think this song is about someone who killed someone else, and their neighbor is poking their nose in (hence the title Nosy Neighbor) where it doesn't belong. Now, the neighbor is being threatened by the killer, the singer.
