[verse 1]
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
