Down where your paint is cracking
Look down your backstairs buddy
Somebody's living there and
He don't really feel the weather

And he don't share your pleasures
No he don't share your pleasures
Did you see his eyes?
Did you see the crazy eyes?

And you're so surprised
He doesn't run to catch your ash
Everybody always
Wants to kiss your trash

And you can't help him
No one can
And now that he knows
There's nothing to get

Will you still place your bet
Against the neighborhood threat

Somewhere a baby's feeding
Somewhere a mother's needing
Outside her boy is trying
But mostly he is crying

Did you see his eyes?
Did you see the crazy eyes?

And you're so surprised
He doesn't run to catch your ash
Everybody always
Wants to kiss your trash

But you can't help him
No one can
And now that he knows
There's nothing to get

Not in this place
Not in your face
Will you still place your bet
Against the neighborhood threat

Now that he knows
There's nothing to get
Nothing to get
Not in this place
Not in your face

Will you still place your bet
Against the neighborhood threat

David Bowie / Iggy Pop
