lyrics

we were two new faces on the block
and we were waiting for those animals to come to us
they can't play guitar
so they stab at my car in the night
while I doze
and sigh a love song
to their wives

maybe I just thought I heard you say
what you used to do to keep a howling wolf away
you'd stay out of sight
then surround them at night
with the fire
is that why the rent keeps
creeping up higher

neighbor, please neighbor, please
it's easy
we can play or we can stay apart
but if you see me and I seem to be sleeping
just walk away
I'm in a state
some kinda Idaho

neighbor i've come to bring you terrible news
we both cannot win and we both cannot lose
the ties that have bound us by now
they fall down to the ground
and our snouts press
and the outcome's now
