And now I'd like to test
My neon lights, aeroplanes
Have lifted the sun from the sky

Through net curtains and bay windows
Your heroin names
Your crack cocaine's insane
Why'd you play that game, dear boy, at all?

So come on, my son
Use your head
It's this neighborhood
Aah aah aaaaahh aaaahh, the neighborhood

Whoo whoo whoo

You moisturize me with your rain
Wash me with your air, it's strange
The favors and time I invested in you
Not time enough when time's for fools alone

I hate my life 'cause I work too hard
You hate yours 'cause you can't get a job
You're readin' books on how to live your life
When you know damn well you will survive

So come on, my son
Use your head
It's this neighborhood
Aah aah aaaaahh aaaahh, it's the neighborhood

Rat a tat tat tat
Leave and don't come back
I know you are coming up my stairs
I'm waiting for you if you find me there
Bring it on

It's a few years on and I'm still inside
Compiling notes on the world inside
I'm petrified of the news headlines
Of the aeroplanes and the neon lights

So I'll live in here until I die
I'd rather eat myself alive
Than be shocked and surprised, be ostracized
When I expose all of your cruel, cruel lies

So come on, my son
Use your head
It's this neighborhood
Aah aah aaaaahh aaaahh, it's the neighborhood

Whoo whoo whoo

So come on, my son
Use your head
It's this neighborhood
Aah aah aaaaahh aaaahh, it's the neighborhood

Whoo whoo whoo
