Track Name: Pedestrians
The girls out on the sidewalk ain't thinking about the strikes.
They don't hear the sound of sirens on the north side at night.
They speak in misquotations, cliches and paraphrases of their idols fat and wasted, getting by on our good graces

The boys they knew in school are off dying in foreign places
while they're dying to impress with their made-up facts and faces.
They speak in inside jokes, catchphrases and quotes.
They wash down pretty little pills to fight the things they fear the most

but when we were young we were too dumb to notice, too drunk to feel it and too smug to care
Crowding the crosswalks, the cars shoveled past us. We could take the 10 bus to anywhere.

They say the road to Armageddon is paved with good intentions.
Maybe every starving artist was just starving for attention
but our hero left Chicago so that he could die alone
stranded on Long Island 700 miles from home.

But when he was young he was too numb to notice, too drunk to feel it and too smart to win.
A neon light Jesus will come back to claim us. The dead and famous
will rise again.

There's nothing more depressing than a generation racing.
It's work or get worked out, run or get run over, take until you're taken or just drink until you're sober.

But when we were young we were too dumb to notice, too drunk to feel it and too smug to care.
Crowding the crosswalks, the cars shoveled past us. We could take the 10 bus to anywhere.
When we were young we were too dumb to notice, too drunk to feel it
and too smart to win.
A neon light Jesus will come back to claim us. The dead and famous
will rise again.
