lyrics

There's a poor boy in the window
He laughs at his own shadow
Hold on, then he's gonna let go
He's wailing, wailing, wailing
So he sells himself
'Cause he's just barely scraping by

There's a blind man in the corner
They treat him like a foreigner
A girl walks by, go warn her
He's aching, aching, aching
Just to look into
Somebody's eyes; forget the pain

(Chorus)
There's a beast inside you too
You don't know how to keep him tame
There's a hollow hole inside
You don't know how to remain sane

Your sister tried to warn you
Your father tried to scorn you
The street kids, trapped and torn
You stand inside a house of cards
Patiently waiting for
The wind to rid you of your sins

(Chorus)

There's a poor boy in your eyes
You don't know how to feed him right
There's a blind man in disguise
You don't know how to gift him sight

Your face is planted neatly
Ever so discreetly
Flat upon the concrete
Scream and shout
You know you're never, never, never
Getting out
