about

A gentleman fears his unusual neighbor, who occasionally steals from him and sets fire to his belongings.

lyrics

I trust neighbors and I love liars
My birdhouse was set on fire
The marshal he said from his van
Blame you not an angry man
But I know just who burned it down
It’s a twisted kind of town

My lawnmower’s a one week missing
And no police are listening
Sitting empty in a garbage sale
But I won’t go in that corral
There are tetanus nails and a pyromaniac
With a chimney in his shack

Everyone’s a monster
Everyone’s afraid
We’re crazy, bored, and poorly paid

Often we set fire to the avenue
Some Frankenstein is leading the parade

A sparrow flies in a tired spell
He checked out of his motel
On my sill with one good eye
He watched me hang my clothes to dry
And I had no seeds left to throw
But he won’t leave ‘til it snows

Everyone’s a monster
Everyone’s afraid
We’re crazy, bored, and poorly paid

Often we set fire to the avenue
Some Frankenstein is leading the parade
