Did someone cut the atmosphere with a knife?
Stare at each other wondering what's the matter
Mutter in a nervous stutter
Do you call this life?
I can see you can you see me?

In the lonely crowd
I can hear you can you hear me?
Everybody's shouting loud
Give me some freedom from the tedium.
We've got nowhere to go tonight
I'm in the lonely crowd
So turn the lights down low
And play the music loud
