Staring into the intersection
She thinks that she can fly and she might
Holding on in a new direction
She's gonna try it tonight
The closer I get to feeling
The further that I'm feeling from alright
The more I step into the sun
The more I step out of the light

Jessica is covered in a blanket
On a Sunday porch
Thinking of weekends she would party in the city
She doesn't have a flame
She'd prefer to burn out like a torch
If she gets nowhere in life
At least she knows she's pretty

Hey now
The straw dog's out in the street
Hey now
There are chemicals in the clouds
Hey now
They're calling all the police
But they won't get to us anyhow

The moon is shining now
And shadows are what's left of all the noise
Simple silhouettes and cutouts
As if we had the choice
He listens closely now
Swears that he can hear a voice
That's calling him and saying

Hey now
The straw dog's out in the street
Hey now
There are chemicals in the clouds
Hey now
They're calling all the police
But they won't get to us anyhow

What does it take to be a superhero in my world?
Make no mistake that these villains always get the girl
We can escape and then we'll skate away from all of this
But no one ever does

Hey now
The straw dog's out in the street
Hey now
There are chemicals in the clouds
Hey now
They're calling all the police
But they won't get to us anyhow
