The Springsteen version is like a whole different song. The last verse completely changes it. From an Orthodox Marxist perspective, one could say that it's superior, that is to say, from the perspective of socialist realism. But the Tom Waits version really speaks to the sketchy moods that one finds oneself in in places like Sud-Ouest Montreal, or for that matter, New Jersey.

I'm going to go drink tea on my roof and chat with people on the phone before Karazhan. Helpdesk training starts tomorrow morning. Handout on Friday. A week from Wednesday my last class starts, finishing up the academic journey I began exactly eleven years ago.
