Lyrics

Some people pay for loving
Down in the red light zone
Some people pin a film star on the wall
Just to keep them from being alone

Some people use the needle
Some use a mobile phone
Some people use a bird in a cage
To keep them from being alone

Some people cut their bodies
Some people break their bones
Spend all their time in the emergency line
Just to keep them from being alone

Beggar in the gutter
King upon the throne
Everybody trying
To keep from being alone

Some people steal your laundry
Prowl all around your home
Keep a dead stranger in their cold white bed
Just to keep them from being alone

Some people worship royalty
Some worship a cross of stone
Some people worship a credit card
Cos it keeps them from being alone

Some people love to gossip
Some people love to moan
Throw in their hand with a violent man
Just to keep them from being alone
