Oh Jeremiah No one saw this coming today But what do you see when You always look the other way? What do you see, what do you say? It was just a little prank You know how kids can be Travelling in packs Making a meal of the weak Get them on their own Man, they can’t even speak! Ooh... Tuesday will be different You can almost count the hours Know what I mean - Like when the jets hit the towers What do we need, another tragedy? It was just a little prank You know how kids can be Who raises kids like that? Can it be they were raised by a tv? Ooh... You’re not alone Not anymore Now we’re wearing your number Now we’re wearing your number Now we’re wearing your number Now we’re wearing your number Now we’re wearing your number Now we’re wearing your number

Have you spent half your life barely living Because you wanted so badly to live? The other half have you spent hardly forgiving Yourself for hiding yourself away? And if you ever become great And your words they serve upon a plate... Don’t expect any pity from me I’ve spent mine all on mediocrity Here comes Misery in its big soft limousine Surprised it leaves you off where you’ve just been? And if you ever become great And your words they serve upon a plate... Have you spent half your life barely living? The other half have you spent hardly forgiving?

I’ll take the top flat If it’s still offered Won’t ever wait too long To come down (I never have) My favored bars Have always been unfilled The best way home Unstepped and still as stone (Always has been) And if I get the chance I’ll retire to a Chinese ghost city If I get the chance I’ll retire to a Chinese ghost city Sirens never sing Schoolyards never ring And if I get the chance I’ll retire to a Chinese ghost city If I get the chance I’ll retire to a Chinese ghost city
