Lyrics


One man alone in Kenmore Square
Looking for a fifteen minute lover
Stuffed in a trench coat with Brylcreem hair
His horny wallet bulging out of his pants

One man alone in Kenmore Square
Looking  for his wife twenty years younger
In the eyes of that hooker
He's getting up his guts in the gutter
 
One man alone in Kenmore Square
His neck has a red guilty glare
The sweat on his forehead is worthless
He's a puppet to his pornographic conscience

That desperate shadow's skeeved and scared
Far from home in Kenmore Square
That desperate shadow's skeeved and scared
Far from home in Kenmore Square

One man alone in Kenmore Square
Tracked a trick under the neon sign
With highway legs and a neon smile
The devil laughed and he desperately cried

The police found a dead man in Kenmore Square
With his suburban guilt splattered in the streets
With a picture of his kids in his wallet
And a shrivelled up prophalactic in his pocket

That desperate shadow died in fear
Far from home in Kenmore Square 
That desperate shadow died in fear
Far from home in Kenmore Square
