lyrics

If you're worried
I'll take you down
To the ugly side of town
Where motors groan and sirens whine
Two-fold both for those whom they toll and whom they remind

We'll punish our eyes
But there's no need of any kind
For our disguise
We'll bury lies
And we'll burn all our concern
With the ugly side of town

Well, I've always heard
It's not about where you're from
But I'm fairly sure
That's what makes you, boy
Oh, the answer's neither here nor there

Well, I've never been too concerned with time
As I'm sure I have never crossed that mind
And if you're wondering, "Where am I going and how?"
You had better ask of yourself, "Where the hell am I now?"

If you're down
I'll pick you up
We'll go straight down through
To where they pour an eight-dollar cup
We'll get just one
And drink as slow as the midday sun
Yes, just one before anymore has a chance to have begun

Well, you're nowhere if you're unaware
Above all it's all neither here nor there
Ooo, we are, dear, neither here nor there
Yes, we are, dear, neither here nor there
We're floating in the air
Ooo, we are dear, neither here nor there
