Win some...

The Final Score

I was hoping for the kind of gritty neo-realism that informed some of the best songs of bands like Eric Burdon & the Animals... but what I ended up with was a couple of local insider references and a sadly obvious yet actually unintentional central pun. (Yeah, yeah, there are no accidents, I hear you. Nonetheless, I was oblivious, even when the first verse began with "junkies" and ended with "final score"...)

The Final Score

From the junkies in the Cooper Arms
to the whores of this old shore
I've seen the winners
I've seen the losers
and I've seen the Final Score....

I've seen all your tomorrows
and then a couple more
Ive seen the future, I've seen the past
I don't wanna see no more

I've seen the fear across their faces
I've heard their anguished cries
I've felt the void explode within
after the dream dies

I know what's gonna happen
yet I'll never know what for
but I'll bet the game begins again
after the Final Score
