Taper Street, from Gary Rogan

September 23, 2013 |

 (With apologies to Gerry Rafferty/Baker Street)

Winding your way down on Taper Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well, another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
These Fed announcements make you feel so cold
They've got so many people, but they've got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought you knew everything

You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now
Another year and then you'd be happy
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
But you're crying, you're crying now

Way down the coast they're shutting down the place
They close the door, they put a frown on your face
But they ask you where you've been
You tell them who you've seen
And you talk about anything
You've got this dream about buying some puts
But what to do while the flexion loots
How can you settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know they'll always keep talking
And you know it's you they will be stalking
'Cause they're breaking, they're breaking bones
And when you wake up, it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
But you're not, you're not going home
