There's a nun crying on the bus, there's a world turning under us
But I'm in no mood for mysteries today
It's a rainy night in Chinatown, I watched the multiplex burning down
And a dosser do the bossa-nova up an alleyway
And a space-cadet down the underpass keep his candy warm in an hourglass
Krishna comes banging drums, but love and peace and stuff bring out the worst in me
The rain is warm, it feels like Nowheresville
If I'm not happy now, Christ knows I'll never be
I said I'd go her see her but I can't be fussed, there's a busker blowing bebop to the dusk
And the moon sprawls like a bride in fuck-warmed sheets
Does the skinny kid watching the barmaid's arse
Know the joys of life bed down on broken glass?
Krishna comes banging drums, but love and peace and shit bring out the worst in me
The rain is warm, it feels like Nowheresville
If I'm not happy now, Christ knows I'll never be
