Game Theory – I've Tried Subtlety lyrics

All the kids from 916 came down
And were misdirected trying to find the grounds
The Regency Hotel
Prom royals eyeing adult-life means to excel

Down into the city-planning flats
Near Victoria Park a block they gathered at
Old masters on the door
Re-styled to stand for some political reform

Under-civilized time, older-sibling-ized crime
And my car got stripped to the frame
And well it feels about the same
Lots of distance gone in vain
And darlings this one is for you
I've tried subtlety before but I will not anymore

For some looking down surveillance vans
M.I.T. grad alley cats with time on their hands
Oh sergeant, I'm sorry
In my line of work they don't teach no courtesy

Gifted children link your arms in rhyme
Better make this world while still it gives you time
Oh will you look so vain
Left to the purging jets like garbage in the rain

Wish I could with someone what I do alone
Should I just stay at home?
Should I just make the whole thing up as I go?
But what do I really know?
Lots of quickness now turned slow
And darlings this one is for you
I've tried subtlety before but I will not anymore
