i never go around the block
twenty steps and then i stop
and man i take a good look at the dirty walls
and all the dirty lives in between
but when emmanuel hall was alive
he used to come down here all the time
he'd always laugh it off and he'd tell me son
you never really get it when you're young
and then emmanuel hall was the strongest man
to ever come out of this town

and all the colours were bright
and the stars threw light
we never strayed oh we were straight on the line
and the hours became days
and the days became years
and he was still around and waiting to find

i never really close the door
so he can come in like he did before
he'd say i never did leave don't you worry none
you didn't really think i could be gone
but emmanuel hall never comes
it doesn't really bother anyone
he used to tell me son i ain't got no one
cause we live better when we're on our own
and then emmanuel hall was the strongest man
to ever come out of this town

and all the colours were bright
and the stars threw light
we never strayed oh we were straight on the line
and the hours became days
and the days became years
and he was still around and waiting to find
another part of town where the ground was sound
and every building was a break for the mind
and in time he found nothing and fate
came down crash on everyone he left behind
