Lyrics

Yeah the rain come
I said hey buddy,
Buddy the streets are a snake and skin
I belong
Out there walkin’
Nobody’s stoppin’ to bother me
They hide
Outside, the ceilings is
Cryin’
Listen to the sound
Of the gutters runnin’
Wash that dirty town
All fronts and no backs
Give me my time
Let me be
Outside
Under the ceiling is
Cryin’
Yeah, all over me
Cryin’
Yeah, all over me
Oh…

And outside you know
I listen to the sounds
Of the gutters runnin’
Wash this dirty town
Fronts and no backs
Give me my time
Let me be
Outside…
Under the ceiling is
Cryin’
Yeah, all over me
Cryin’
Yeah, all over me
Oh…
Oh…
