    Susan's House

    [Verse 1]
    Going over to Susan's house
    Walking south down Baxter Street
    Nothing hiding behind this picket fence
    There's a crazy old woman smashing bottles on the sidewalk where her house burnt down two years ago
    People say that back then she really wasn't that crazy

    [Chorus 1]
    Going over to Susan's house (x2)
    I can't be alone tonight

    [Verse 2]
    Down by the Donut Prince
    A fifteen year old boy lies on the sidewalk with a bullet in his forehead
    In a final act of indignity the paramedics take off all his clothes for the whole world to see while they put him in the bag
    Meanwhile an old couple argues inside the queen bee
    The sick fluorescent light shimmering on their skin

    [Chorus 2]
    Going over to Susan's house (x2)
    She's gonna make it right

    Take a left down Echo Park
    A kid asks do I want some crack
    TV sets are spewing Baywatch
    Through the windows into black

    [Verse 3]
    Here comes a girl with long brown hair who can't be more than seventeen
    She sucks on a red popsicle while she pushes a baby girl in a pink carriage
    And I'm thinking that must be her sister
    That must be her sister, right?
    They go into the 7-11
    And I keep walking

    [Chorus 1]
    Going over to Susan's house (x2)
    I can't be alone tonight
