    Lyrics

    Everyone is busy with the regular routine
    The sniper just takes his aim
    Everyone is window shopping, no one is amazed
    Even if he hit you, you'd still think it's just a graze
    You go to a movie, you go to a show
    You think that you're living, you don't really know
    Big tears mean nothing
    You can count them as they fall
    Big tears mean nothing
    When you're lying in your coffin
    Tell me who's been taken in

    Oh, you talk about the new boss automatic clause
    But of course they make it all up for you
    Always fascinated by the weird edge of town
    Come home disappointed every time they put you down
    Laughing with the old boys, saying that it's all noise

    I suppose big tears mean nothing
    You can count them as they fall
    Big tears mean nothing
    When you're lying in your coffin
    Tell me who's been taken in

    All the buttons of my overcoat
    They have fallen off one by one
    You wouldn't even like me if you'd never had a drink
    You wouldn't even like me if you never stopped to think
    Standing in the shadow, turning wives to widows

    Don't you know big tears mean nothing
    You can count them as they fall
    Big tears mean nothing
    When you're lying in your coffin
    Tell me who's been taken in
    Tell me, me or yous been taken in
    Tell me, tell me, tell me
