It's a long way down above the two tone town
And it's not funny when you're stuck in the middle
I'm coming up for air, I could be anywhere
It makes no difference when you live in a puddle

Now that I see it how can I breath
When my heart's in my mouth and not on my sleeve?
Better run little rabbit back to your hole in the ground
It's a long way down, it's a long way down

The people look so small sliding off the wall
Getting dizzy as they fall in the gutter
I watch the seagull swooping past the steeple
Crying for his dinner as he shits on the sinners

Now that I see it how can I breathe
When my heart's in my mouth instead of my sleeve?
Better run little rabbit back to your hole in the ground
It's a long way down, it's a long way down

Mama, an eye for an eye
You'd say you'd never take a side
Papa, I'm too young to die
They're never taking me, they're never taking me alive
Never taking me alive, never taking me alive
