THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS lyrics : "Ballad Of A Comeback Kid"

Pray for content
Settle for free rent
The tenements recall Rome

High five
Look up, look alive

As the scions of history
Guess another mystery

Recite your lines
And I'll quote scriptures

Everything was fine
Until membership lost its privileges

Everyone in town
Wanted to be around you
This went on for awhile

Until they finally found you

Ever so careful

On the strip
We cruise
Crippled in

Someone else's shoes
Who knew?
Mind you

I never had to stand in line
You did...
For the ballad of a comeback kid

Watch your step
As you step down

From the podium
Returned from the war
To a hero's welcome

What's more
You just had to win

Blazing new trails
Waving goodbye
To the audience

Held captive
The crowd was inactive
It made such perfect sense

But you won't
Kelly says she could have

Like a bat out of hell
Time has come for you
