lyrics

I'm misery with company with nothing to say
Another brakeman on the rail so that the devil can prey
Screaming at the streetlights and I'm bound to be heard
With a pocket full of nothing and a mouth full of words
In the breadline again, I should just call it my home
Fishing change from dirty mouths of the public phones
Daily swallowing the squalor that you've only heard of
All the ashes down below and all the rain from above
You never be nobody, never go nowhere
Got the train comin at me and I just don't care
With my soul on the market and I feel so strange
Nobody's buying anyway, can't break a penny for change
Besides, who'd be there to split the rails if I were to go away?
Another slum rat asking me to spare him a joint
I could pull on the money machine but really what'd be the point?
In the shipwreck of the city where the tragedies sing
And I'm just another echo, watch me ring ring ring
Yeah I'm misery with company, I got nothing new
A broke down repeater with a five nickel view
Screaming at the streetlights and I'm bound to be heard
Say you love me or you hate me, all I'm hearing is words
"You'll never be nobody, never going nowhere"
I got the train coming at me and I just don't care
With my soul on the market and I feel so strange
Nobody's buying anyway, can't break a penny for change
Besides, who'd be there to split the rails if I were to go away?
