"The Boxer" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
A Bruisful Blue Play fights with the stars
This Place is our prison
It sells the past
So take me to town
I wanna dance with the city
Show me something ugly,
Show me something pretty

Damn this place makes a boy out of me
The Rain meets my face by the ?

An Unwanted sun pulls rank in the sky
The Boxer isn’t finished
He’s not ready to die
I’m attracted to the light
I’m attracted to the heat
It’s a violent night
There are boxers in the street

Damn this place makes a boy out of me
The Rain meets my face by the ?
And damn this place makes a boy out of me
The rain meets my Face before an oak tree

Dazed in the final rounds
Dazed in the final rounds
Dazed in the final rounds
Dazed in the final rounds

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually:

    A bruised full moon play fights with the stars
    This place is our prison, it's cells are the bars
    So take me to town, I want to dance with the city
    Show me something ugly and show me something pretty

    Damn this place, makes a boy out of me
    The ring meets my face by the count of three

    An unwanted son pulls rank in the sky
    The Boxer isn't finished, he's not ready to die
    I'm attracted to the light, I'm attracted to the heat
    It's a violent night, there are boxers in the streets

    Damn this place, makes a boy out of me
    The rain meets my face by the count of three
    Damn this place, makes a boy out of me
    The rain meets my face, I'm a fallen oak tree

    Dazed in the final count (x4)

    I think. :)

    General CommentI think it's basically a song about being uncomfortable in your surroundings.
