Lifting the mask from a local clown, feeling down like him Seeing the light in a station bar and travelling far in sin Sailing downstairs to the northern line, watching the shine of the shoes And hearing the trials of the people there Who's to care if they lose? Take a look you may see me on the ground For I am the parasite of this town Dancing a jig in a church with chimes, a sign of the times today And hearing no bell from a steeple tall, people all in dismay Falling so far on a silver spoon, making the moon for fun Changing a rope for a size too small, people all get hung Take a look you may see me coming through For I am the parasite who travels two by two But I'm lifting the mask from a local clown and feeling down again And I'm seeing the light in a station bar and travelling far in sin And I'm sailing downstairs to the northern line, watching the shine of the shoes And hearing the trials of the people there Who's to care if they lose? Take a look you may see me on the ground For I am the parasite of this town And take a look you may see me on the dirt For I am the parasite who hangs from your skirt NOTE: Just a fixing of the lyrics, since I have the Fruit Tree box set lyrics now.
