The Decemberists - On The Bus Mall Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • In matching blue raincoats,
  • our shoes were our show boats
  • we kicked around.
  • From stairway to station
  • we made a sensation
  • with the gadabout crowd.
  • And oh, what a bargain,
  • we’re two easy targets
  • for the old men at the off-tracks,
  • who’ve paid in palaver
  • and crumpled old dollars,
  • which we squirreled away
  • in our rat trap hotel by the freeway.
  • And we slept-in Sundays.
  • Your parents were anxious,
  • your cool was contagious
  • at the old school.
  • You left without leaving
  • a note for your grieving
  • sweet mother, while
  • your brother was so cruel.
  • And here in the alleys
  • your spirits were rallied
  • as you learned quick to make a fast buck.
  • In bathrooms and barrooms,
  • on dumpsters and heirlooms,
  • we bit our tongues.
  • Sucked our lips into our lungs
  • 'til we were falling.
  • Such was our calling.
  • And here in our hollow we fuse like a family,
  • but I will not mourn for you.
  • So take up your makeup
  • and pocket your pills away.
  • We’re kings among runaways
  • on the bus mall.
  • We’re down
  • on the bus mall.
  • Among all the urchins and old Chinese merchants
  • of the old town,
  • we reigned at the pool hall
  • with one iron cue ball
  • and we never let the bastards get us down.
  • And we laughed off the quick tricks--
  • the old men with limp dicks--
  • on the colonnades of the waterfront park.
  • As 4 in the morning came on, cold and boring,
  • we huddled close
  • in the bus stop enclosure enfolding.
  • Our hands tightly holding.
  • But here in our hollow we fuse like a family,
  • but I will not mourn for you.
  • So take up your makeup
  • and pocket your pills away.
  • We’re kings among runaways
  • on the bus mall.
  • We’re down
  • on the bus mall.
  • We’re down
  • on the bus mall.
  • Down on the bus mall.
  • oh ooh oh
