lyrics

Monday morning’s already got me in its sight
And I’m still chasing down the thief who stole my saturday night
I know the afternoon won’t recede without a fight
But man my optimism is fading with the light

Five o’clock shadow grows in on the city’s face
Concealing the blemishes inflicted upon this place
But when the morning comes to shave the downtown clean
The scars remind us of all the hard times that we’ve seen

Punch the keys and the letters fight back
They’ve been preparing their attack on me
All this time they’ve been closing in
Now they’re about to begin on me
But there’s something even they don’t understand
They’re coming after the wrong man
They’ll see

Stranger on the platform are you just passing through
Are you running from something or is there something you’re running to
There’s not many differences between me and you
At least not today but tomorrow there just might be a few

There’s a man on the corner spreading advice
The people turn their heads to keep him out of their sight
But maybe he’s the only one who’s got it right
Maybe his words will find their meaning with the night

Punch the keys and the letters fight back
They’ve been preparing their attack on me
All this time they’ve been closing in
Now they’re about to begin on me
But there’s something even they don’t understand
They’re coming after the wrong man
They’ll see

They’ve been coming after the wrong man
