Kickin around downtown.
I see the people in the passing window.
And their hungry, tired faces betray they wish they had somewhere better to go.
Well, you know I'm no different.
With my hands deep in my pockets thinking it don't really matter where they end up tonight.
Because it's kind of hard to be insane in the city
Even though that every single city I've lived in
It's pavement walks formed the circles I walked in. It just feels the same. And it feels like nothings changed.
I'm comin down to town.
Goin from house to house.
You know we just can't seem to get it right and I just don't wanna see you tonight.
Because it's all the same buildings.
And it's all the same dirty streets.
Our little version of America.
It don't really mean shit to me.
Sometimes I feel more than a city can hold.
Sometimes I feel more than a city can hold!
Because it's kinda hard to be insane in the city.
Even though that every single city I've lived in it's pavement walks formed the circles that I walk in.
It just feels the same.
Can't live with the people I live with.
Can't work with the people that I work with.
Some people say I've just got an attitude.
Some people say I'm just hard to deal with.
I'm just tryin to survive!
I've done some things that I'm not so proud of.
No, you never want to hurt the people you love.
Sometimes you just gotta look them in the eye and apologize.

    General Commentfuck this song is so good. here's the lyrics straight from the insert that comes with the 7":

    kicking around downtown
    see the people in the passing windows
    and their hungry, tired faces betray
    they wish they had somewhere better to go

    you know I'm no different
    with my hands deep in my pockets thinking
    it don't really matter where I end up tonight

    "it's kinda hard to be a saint in the city"
    even though this ain't no city that I live in
    this pavements worn from the circles that I walk in
    it just feels the same
    it feels like nothings changed

    going from town to town
    or from house to house
    you know I just can't seem to get it right
    and I just don't wanna see you tonight
    'cause it's all the same buildings
    and all the same dirty streets
    our little version of america
    it don't really mean shit to me

    sometimes I feel more than this city can hold

    can't live with the people I live with
    can't work with the people I work with
    some people say I just got an attitude
    some people say I'm just hard to deal with
    I just try to survive

    done some things I'm not too proud of
    you know you never wanna hurt the people you love
    sometimes you gotta look them in the eye and apologize
