lyrics

I’ve got a friend in East Oakland
She’s got a problem with cocaine
It leaves her restless in the evening
With far too much to say

But nobody’s listening baby
Nobody seems to care anymore
Nobody’s listening baby
Cause the sound you make, they’ve heard it all before

I’ve got a buddy with a fever
And he sweats and shakes and cries
He gets up early in the morning
And he writes the things that he sees at night

But nobody’s listening baby
Nobody seems to care anymore
Nobody’s listening baby
Cause the sound you make, they’ve heard it all before

Oh but I love them still
And I see their hearts burn like a photograph
Cause nothing’s new and nothing’s ever real
And there is no future in the past

I’ve got a brother down in Texas
And he’s scared to sing his heart
But how I wish that I could hold him and tell him
Boy singing out, that’s the easy part

But nobody’s listening baby
Nobody seems to care anymore
Nobody’s listening baby
Cause the sound you make, they’ve heard it all before
