No business being out late
I lost my feeling for the night
These aren't my streets and these aren't my bars
These unfamiliar neon lights
I feel myself retreating
I feel the snapping of a drum
The sound is close but the song is far away
I don't know what you have become

Hey! Hey kids in Japan
You speak a language that I can't understand
Hey! Hey, kids in Japan
I am - I am the missing man

The sound of lighting
The taste of fire
There's something there sleeping underneath the weeds
Let's burn it down and steal the seeds


Everybody everybody everybody
Send out your prayers to the missing man
Spare what you can
Hold a good thought for the missing man
I know I am

The eastern summit
The shortest way down
Don't know why I am surprised
Everybody's got to pay a price
