lyrics

I hear the train a’coming down the orange line
Smoked pot in the parking lot, now I’m doing my time
You can scoff all you want, it’s the exact same crime
That you commit in your two-bedroom in the new high rise

Day I got out, went by the neighborhood
Just a pit in the ground for the new high rise
They say they're moving us back in
soon as they make it look good
Just in time to forget what it was we were waiting for

Oh, what do you see standing way up there?
Oh, what do you hear, listening from way up there?
No matter what I say, the papers are on your side
They got no reason to keep me here, and I got no reason to stay

My brother took me to the country side
When I want trouble nothing else will suffice
Instead we go down to see his friend into interpretive glance
She says, "oh, can't you see how time keeps dragging on?"

And what about you, are your on your own?
Does your daddy come every time you phone?
Did your momma buy your degree, introduce to you all her friends?
Co-sign the lease on your two-bedroom in the new high rise?

Oh, what do you see standing way up there?
Oh, what do you hear, listening from way up there?
No matter what I say, the papers are on your side
They got no reason to keep me here, and I got no reason to stay
They got no reason to keep me here, and I got no reason to stay
