Puttin' on the eyes…  'til there's nobody else…

Nights of confusion…  and impossible dreams…

You take your pension… in loneliness and alcohol…

Chorus 3
Say goodbye…  to conventional ways… 
You can't escape the hours…  you lose track of the days… 
The more you understand…  seems the more like you do… 
You never get away…  
Everybody wants you…
