Lyrics

I walked through the city limits
(Someone talked me in to try 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 had a room to stay) A wire fence where the children play
(Saw the bed where the body lay) And I was looking for a friend 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 I 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, nail me to a train (No stomach, torn apart, 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)

Four, twelve windows, ten in a row
(Behind a wall, well I looked down low) The lights shined like a neon show
(Inserted deep, felt a warmer glow) No place to stop, no place to go
(No time to lose, had to keep on going)
I guess they died some time ago
(I guess they died some time ago) And I was looking for a friend of mine
(And I had no time to waste) Yeah, looking for some friends of mine
