    Lyrics

    He hums tonight through his street
    My unlatched window the tune repeats
    The curb crawling car winds down to a stop
    A few seconds mumbled then whisks him off

    Sick and tired of abuse
    Controlled signs of hysteria
    But like when dawn arrives
    He remembers his leisure

    He risks tonight through his block
    A crack in the curtains is unlocked
    No meeting with a mother or greeting a friend
    Sharp looking boot-jack with some time to spend

    Sick and tired of abuse
    Controlled signs of hysteria
    But like when dawn arrives
    He remembers his leisure

    He rides tonight through his manor
    I can see his conscience get the better
    From a doorway stepped in shadowed leather
    Exchanging handshakes for money
    And pleasure

    He crawls tonight through his scum
    From a dirty window his body's numb
    Beneath the street lamp tilts shoulders bent
    Meets his pickup who pays his rent

    Sick and tired of abuse
    Controlled signs of hysteria
    But like when dawn arrives
    He remembers his leisure
    His pleasure
