Lyrics

There's no sleep at midnight
Someone pounds the basement door
I hear Alex talk to Carmen
Saying "What chu come hear for?"
Carmen says "I missed you baby"
She's got her kids with her too
She's dying for some affection
Alex just says "Fuck you"

I hear sirens in the distance
The subway rumbles down below
I would leave here in a minute
If I had somewhere else to go

Voices shout above me
Nothing I haven't heard before
The fighting will continue
Until Michael slams the door
He won't be back till morning
So Madeline will sleep alone
And cry about her situation
And dream of being on her own

And I hear sirens in the distance
The subway rumbles down below
I would leave here in a minute
If I had somewhere else to go

I need a change of scenery
So I walk through the neighborhood
Down Broadway then 41st Street
And I'm almost feeling good
Then I hear a woman crying
Some guy calls her a disgrace
She taunts him - like she knows whats coming
He reaches back and slaps her face

I hear sirens in the distance
The subway rumbles down below
I would leave here in a minute
If I had somewhere else to go
