We were strangers and thieves Leaving tags and graffiti smoke screens Stealing candy from arcades What the hell we were only fifteen Walk on from a place we never came from Walk on and listen to no one I been thinking ‘bout you lately I’m lost and I’m lonely in the tenements of life I never really had a family It’s alright, I really could use a friend Looking back on a fanzine, from warehouse wars to bedroom communities Burning down the arcade, urban gardens and homesick holidays Walk on from a place we never came from Walk on and answer to no one I’ve been thinking ‘bout you lately I’m lost and I’m lonely in the tenements of life I never really had a family It’s alright, I really could use a friend We were strangers and thieves Dancing in the house of conspiracy We were nervous energy Suburban noise and tenement pipe dreams I’ve been thinking ‘bout you lately I’m lost and I’m lonely in the tenements of life I never really had a family I been thinking bout you lately It’s alright, I really could use a friend Robbin’ banks in America, robbin’ banks in American time

I'm on a helicopter ride through Vietnam. I'm the Leicester Square Kid I'm superman. I'm putting weight for the Oscar. Man gonna Get through anyway I can. Everywhere everyone is red and green. I gotta lust for glory and a tape machine. I'm living out Frank Coppola's dreams. Outta my mind I'm feelin' mean. I'm Nuremberg Stepper blowin' wets away. I gotta headful of Hendrix, I'm feelin' OK. I'm a late night thriller, I'm miss La Ray. Outta my mind Can I come to play? Hey hey hey we're in the movie. I feel up and I feel groovy. Let's go out and get some of that. Gimme gimme gimme some Russian Roulette. La la la.... I said hey.
