The old lady from the third block
Has to push her own wheelchair
And the guy that collects stubs
Is lighting a Marlboro filter
The new ones in the higher class
All try to look away
When someone asks them for an apple
Or a stranger just wants to stay
It’s natural, they’ve learned the lesson
From the best masters in town
They’ve been impaled by some pictures
Of the hunchback of Notre Dame

I’m standin’ with saltines in hand
And don’t like them at all
Swallowing a piece of crackers
This race will surely fall

The waxed haired jerk from high school
Has to think how he will explain
That the hits in the gym made him forget
That girls like to be called by their names
And the one who just lost her grit
Will put on another disguise
Fairly made-up for a battle she’d win
She’ll have her tears out of sight
When the next wham is given
She’s crying as she takes the blame
Pulls out a number from her back pocket
That voice will say never feel any shame

I’m standin’ with my hands just hangin’
And I’d rather stare at a wall
Shakin for a hint of a cigarette
This race will surely fall

The guard in the new pub
Is a threat so you don’t feel safe
As you’re drinking your beer of freedom
He puts a scare on your face
And I see your old friends’ reunion
Is going well for sure
Well everyone knows it’s no secret
Just keep on pushing your phone
Caught the tram slightly drunk
All the guys are searching for a club
Everyone shouts: Carpe diem!
A man nearby is getting robbed

I was about to watch from above
But it seems I’m not that tall
And until that changes
It’s me who has to fall
