Birthday boy
Can't explain  Christmas Eve
He's born again 

On the line
A broken train
 Going nowhere
 Endless rain

 Birthday Boy
So afraid  Plays the machines 
In the arcade 

Oh baby do you remember 
He's been through all this before?
 Spent the summer  Getting nowhere
 Taking all of the blame 
For the city
 Calculating 
From pain comes pity

 Christmas Eve
A time of joy
If you believe 
In Birthday Boy

This time around 
It's all a mistake 
Is he deluded 
Or just a fake?

Oh baby do you remember 
He's been through all this before?
 Spent the summer  Getting nowhere
 Taking all of the blame 
For the city
 Calculating 
From pain comes pity

If you knew his name
 Would you feel the same?
If you knew his name?

 Birthday boy
 Stands apart
As the drama's
 About to start 

A quick betrayal
A speedy trial
As before  Complete denial

Oh baby do you remember 
He's been through all this before?
 Spent the summer  Getting nowhere
 Taking all of the blame 
For the city
 Calculating 
From pain comes pity

If you knew his name
 Would you feel the same?
