Pockets stuffed with hands and pavement catching stares
Dropped to avoid the glare
Of storefront signs in the flat-back night
Impressions you leave like chalk outlines

Yeah you say you're getting over, getting on, doing fine
But walk down the street where you can drink for free
Get her off your mind
'Cause you still can't figure out
When everything went south
Or why you want it back so bad anyhow

Realize that you have your rights but history worth repeating
Will never surface twice
All the wiser for it so much more aware
Pockets stuffed with hands
Pavement catching stares yeah

You say you're getting older, moving on doing fine
But you walk down the street where you can drink for free
Get it off your mind
'Cause you still can't figure out
When everything went south
Or why you want it back so bad anyhow

Cure-all or quick fix thought we'd put this all behind us
You're a sight gag with poor timing
In bed asleep while the house is burning
Victim of a smear campaign still you know she'll never feel the same
Besides: out of sight is out of mind

Realize that you have your rights but history worth repeating
Will never surface twice
All the wiser for it so much more aware
Pockets stuffed with hands
Pavement catching stares yeah

Yeah you say you're getting over, getting on, doing fine
But walk down the street where you can drink for free
Get her off your mind
'Cause you still can't figure out
When everything went south
Or why you want it back so bad anyhow
Anyhow...
