I can't talk too loud because he might be at the door
It's about this guys who lives next to me on this floor
He's been up all night
I don't think he ever sleeps

Got in some trouble on the ugly side of town
Busted him a rank, and they rode him out of town
for being in the wrong place,
wrong space,
wrong time.

He sits and watches the TV
He smokes a cigarette, or three
and waits to feel some new sensation
He says that only time will tell
He locks himself inside a shell
Poor guy,
he's the new crustacean
