    Lyrics

    Going down a dirty inner city side road
    I plotted
    Madness passed me by, she smiled hi
    I nodded
    Looked up as the sky began to cry
    She shot it

    Met a girl from Dearborn, early six o'clock this morn
    A cold fact
    Asked about her bag, suburbia's such a drag
    Won't go back
    'Cause Papa don't allow no new ideas here
    And now he sees the news, but the picture's not too clear

    Mama, papa, stop
    Treasure what you got
    Soon you may be caught
    Without it
    The curfew's set for eight
    Will it ever all be straight
    I doubt it

    Seven jealous fools playing by her rules
    Can't believe her
    He feels so in between, can't break the scene
    It would grieve her
    And that's the reason why he must cry
    He'll never leave her

    Crooked children, yellow chalk
    Writing on the concrete walk
    Their King died
    Drinking from a Judas cup
    Looking down but seeing up
    Sweet red wine
    'Cause papa don't allow no new ideas here
    And now you hear the music
    But the words don't sound too clear

    Mama, papa, stop
    Treasure what you got
    Soon you may be caught
    Without it
    The curfew's set for eight
    Will it ever all be straight
    I doubt it

    Going down a dusty, Georgian side road
    I wonder
    The wind splashed in my face
    Can smell a trace
    Of thunder
