I walked through the city limits, Someone talked me in to do it, Attracted by some force within it, Had to close my eyes to get close to it, Around a corner where a prophet lay, Saw the place where she'd had a room to stay, A wire fence where the children played Saw the bed where the body lay, And I was looking for some friends of mine. And I had no time to waste. Yeah, looking for some friends of mine.
The cars screeched hear the sound on dust, Heard a noise just a car outside, Metallic blue turned red with rust, Pulled in close by the building's side, In a group all forgotten youth, Had to think, collect my senses now, Are turned on to a knife edged view Find some places where my friends don't know, And I was looking for a friend of mine, And had no time to waste. Yeah, looking for some friends of mine.
Down the dark streets, the houses looked the same, Getting darker now, faces look the same, And I walked round and round. No stomach, torn apart, Nail me to a train. Had to think again, trying to find a clue, trying to find a way to get out! Trying to move away, had to move away and keep out.
