It’s started raining
Won’t stop raining now till the spring.
It bleeds all the colours
Vagues and greys most everything
The dripping erosion
The subtle corrosion
The muck and the mire
Turns hero into liar
All greys and all browns
A sepia colour town
Riff, Raff, Hustle, Trash

The comings and goings
The needings and knowings
And it’s pure theatre.
The actors you see
Only half a story
And it’s real . . . . .
Riff, Raff, Hustle, Trash

Our hero he exits the house
A broken man, crawls on all fours.
The villain he enters the stage
The scene is set, revolving doors
The black dog is digging
The heavens are wringing out
The pits and the props
The freaks and the flops
The creeps and the clowns
Of Satantango town
Riff, Raff, Hustle, Trash
