The Lyrics Are Below

 Mighty Mighty Bosstones

A Jackknife to a Swan

 

Shortly after Evelyn was doused with gasoline

And just a few miles off the avenue

A lighter flashed into a puff of smoke

For thirty years Walter worked right there

Five days out of every week

That's where he watched his hometown fade

The last came fast and furious

Just step in one direction

Stutter step for one split second

Faster through the intersection

A jackknife to a swan and he was gone

When Walter's shift was over

He'd head out to catch the red line home

Two stops away his family slept

He'd be there when they got out of bed

Destination subway station

Someone yelled so he looked back

Five guys were heading his way

He ran to catch that last train home

Just step in one direction

Stutter step for one split second

Faster through the intersection

A jackknife to a swan and he was gone

 

Oh Walter ran and did they kill Evelyn?

He had his token in his hand

But he jumped over the turnstile

And he ran down the platform

They were hot on his heels

An outbound was bearing down on him

Walter jumped in front of it

( Just step in one direction

Stutter step for one split second

Faster through the intersection

A jackknife to a swan and he was gone [2x]
