He's done every rotten thing you can imagine
He's had all your awful thoughts and some you haven't
Is it too late to be good or is the answer obvious
The best of what was left went to a stripper in Providence

On the outside, a fresh new violence being done
Across the rise is a man on fire

The saddest girls cannot tell beautiful from easy
Even the best can always leave the room discreetly
Is this really all there is? it's not getting any better
He's had everyone in Boston and still he can't forget her

On the inside a different violence being done
Across the bar there's a man on fire

And he hopes there is no afterlife
'Cause what would dad say if he knew

The saddest word invented is potential (you had potential)
The years fall down around so hard it is torrential

On the outside, a fresh new violence being done
Across the rise is a man on fire
On the inside a different violence being done
Across the bar there's a man on fire
