They don't know so don't trust them
Keep your eyes on the sidewalk
We could come round for a few
Fake you out is all they'll do
Keep your head all tied up
In the sky above you

It's a capital kind of
It's a capital kind of
It's a capital kind of strain

They don't know how to waste time
Keep your eyes on the landmark
They'll be here soon to forget you
Fake you out is all they'll do
Keep your head all tied up
In the sky above you

It's a capital kind of
It's a capital kind of
It's a capital kind of strain

    General CommentI can't help but assume this song is based on J.D. Salingers "Catcher in the rye. Or rather the narrative of it's protagonist Holden Cailfield.

    "They don't know how to waste time"

    Adults inability to enjoy life.
