Living just a stone's throw from the 24th corridor
Dodging the social life like some shy toreador
Out there in the night, there's rugs being cut
There's flesh being pressed, there's scenes blowing up

And lately as I walk out on the 24th corridor
There's so many different kinds of people to meet
and things to explore
and all is hard to see behind a closed door
and i can't bring myself to recall what I was hiding for

So many good things to say about the 24th corridor
and i can only summon cliques and weak metaphors
and sometimes i wonder to myself, "why pay for the action"?
when time at work and time with her is what i call satisfaction

So, duck a bullet on your way through the 24th corridor
To whatever watered down watering hole you've come to adore
and i'll be holed up in my own hole
digging for something I can share, something to break the mold
i'll be holed up in my hole
doing my lonely alchemy
trying to make gold
