    Lyrics

    Smeared black ink... your palms are sweaty
    And I'm barely listening to last demands
    I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath
    Where I am
    Where I am

    I'll wear my badge... a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
    That tells your new friends I am a visitor here...
    I am not permanent
    And the only thing keeping me dry is
    Where I am
    Where I am
    Where I am

    You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
    A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just visiting
    And I am finally seeing
    Why I was the one worth leaving
    Why I was the one worth leaving

    D.C. sleeps alone tonight

    Where I am
    Where I am
    Where I am

    You seem so so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
    A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just visiting
    And I am finally seing
    Why I was the one worth leaving
    Why I was the one worth leaving

    Where I am
    Where I am
    Where I am

    The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
    And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
    And I am finally seeing
    Why I was the one worth leaving
    Why I was the one worth leaving
    Why I was the one worth leaving
    Why I was the one worth leaving
