There’s a secret stigma, reaping wheel.
Diminish, a carnival of sorts.
Chronic town, poster torn, reaping wheel.
Stranger, stranger to these parts.

Gentlemen don’t get caught, cages under
cage. Gentlemen don’t get caught,
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.

There’s a secret stigma, reaping wheel.

Gentlemen don’t get caught, cages under
cage. Gentlemen don’t get caught,
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.

Cages under, cages under, cages under cage.
Cages under, cages under, cages under cage.

Gentlemen don’t get caught, cages under
cage. Gentlemen don’t get caught,
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
Boxcars (are pulling) out of town.
