Lyrics:
I’m as far away from love as you can get
But comfortable in the misery
The spiders on the ceiling are my best friends
It’s a brotherhood of the misunderstood
I hang my head down to my feet
Fold my hands and give the Lord my aching soul to keep
Pretend I’m somewhere else as I give in to the sleep
Another light goes out on 20th street

Crazy Luna likes to sing when it rains
You can hear her from the platform
As she pretends to wait for the train
She blends in nicely with the anger of horns
A harmony of pain as the city cries together

I’m as far away from love as you can get
But comfortable in the misery
The spiders on the ceiling are my best friends
It’s a brotherhood of the misunderstood
I hang my head down to my feet
Fold my hands and give the Lord my aching soul to keep
Pretend I’m somewhere else as I give in to the sleep
Another light goes out on 20th street

Business is booming at liquor store
Old Johnny gets his fix soon as they open doors
By 10am he’s scrounging for another
Palm up, asking me to help out a brother
This life was more than he could take
So come today he’d rather stumble than to shake

I’m as far away from love as you can get
But comfortable in the misery
The spiders on the ceiling are my best friends
It’s a brotherhood of the misunderstood
I hang my head down to my feet
Fold my hands and give the Lord my aching soul to keep
Pretend I’m somewhere else as I give in to the sleep
Another light goes out on 20th street
