about

Dedicated to Geddy Lee, who led the way.

lyrics

nine-dollar bill in a two-bit town,
nobody knows how to make that kind of change
watch your back when the sun goes down,
you're a new fish and sharks are coming into range
fat kid, skinny kid, new in town, the kid with glasses
the kid without a home, the boy who loves other boys
the smart girl who'd rather be left alone
why in the hell did they put us here?
we don't belong and they never let us forget it
hope I make it ‘til my sentence is over
only five years, four months now
mom works two jobs and daddy's gone,
home's far across the great divide
bell rings, school's out, walking home,
a new fish trapped by the sinking tide
the sharks are waiting they're right outside
and you try and you try but they still won't let you get by
and you cry and you cry but they still won't let you get by
out on the street, back in the alley, they knock you down
and they make you crawl
gimme your lunch money kid, gimme them shoes
gimme your violin, let’s play the blues
I ran I ran I ran - I got free and I found the key
it was around my neck on a string, I'm safe this time - this time
a new fish trapped by the sinking tide
the sharks are waiting, they're right outside
and you try and you try, but they still won't let you get by
and you cry and you cry and you try and you try
but they still won't let you get by
I am free, in the dark I found the key, it was in the strings upon this neck
the whole damn time - You tossed me a line
so it's my turn this time, to be more than kind.
