You take, you give it
You break your life, but you live it anyway
You have no choice, you take your chances
You use your voice, you fake the dances
You fly, you finish, afraid to die
You diminish your returns, make friction till it burns
And with a little force, you've made it to the chorus

I summed up life at Penn Station
Philosophy radiates off the rails
Waiting for the 2 a.m. train it never fails
You know it's time spent you'll never recover
And mass transit's heavy on your brain
It all seemed clear at Penn Station
I must have been insane

You drink, you swallow
You think you're full, but you don't follow your advice
Another would be nice, don't think about it twice
You're chewing on the ice
You flirt, you stumble
You fill your shirt
Pretend you're humble at the bars
Judge people by their cars
With pennies in your purse, you've passed another verse

I summed up life at Penn Station
Philosophy radiates off the rails
Waiting for the 2 a.m. train it never fails
You know it's time spent you'll never recover
And mass transit's heavy on your brain
It all seemed clear at Penn Station
I must have been insane

Your work, you hate it
Who needs a clerk who never made it at your age
The world is just a stage
You're standing on the edge
Or is it just a bridge
Don't put so much thought in it
It's only life anyway

I summed up life at Penn Station
Philosophy radiates off the rails
Waiting for the 2 a.m. train it never fails
You know it's time spent you'll never recover
And mass transit's heavy on your brain
It all seemed clear at Penn Station
I must have been insane

You take, you give it
You break your life, but you live it anyway
You break your life, but you live it anyway
You break your life, but you live it anyway
