Look What Happened originally appeared on the album Borders & Boundaries as its fourth track. It was later re-recorded for the Anthem album, where it got its horn intro and bass solo removed. The artwork for the song on Anthem was made by Wendy Ann Gardner. The title to this song was originally "Look What Happened to Urishima Taro", referencing an old Japanese folk tale about a man who left his life behind to live under the sea with a tortoise princess, and when he returned, 300 years had passed and everyone he knew was long dead. He missed his old life so much, he opened a magic box given to him by the princess, which immediately aged him 300 years. The Japanese intro heard on Borders & Boundaries is in keigo. It's from the official time service and it just says "Now it is 11:53 pm".

LyricsEdit

And I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try
and we'll walk in circles around this whole block
walk on the cracks of the same old sidewalks
then we'll talk about leaving town
yeah we'll talk about leaving
I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try

We rode across that bridge all night
we talked our way through city lights
traced all the lines, we're killing time
under those buzzing signs
from downtown to anywhere but here
tonight, yeah, I swear
to these rooftops
and just hoped that car would never stop

And I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try
and we'll walk in circles around this whole block
walk on the cracks of the same old sidewalks
and we'll talk about leaving town
and we'll talk about leaving
I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try

We drove around this place all night
past closed signs and familiar sights
we're moving by, passing time
counting those center lines
with 20,000 lines left to go
that lead to somewhere I don't know
it might be the time that we
leave this all behind

And I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try
and we'll walk in circles around this whole block
walk on the cracks of the same old sidewalks
and we'll talk about leaving town
and we'll talk about leaving
I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try

And there's
been a few times
when we
thought it felt right
to take
the westbound signs
and just
leave town tonight

And I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try
and we'll walk in circles around this whole block
walk on the cracks of the same old sidewalks
and we'll talk about leaving town
yeah we'll talk about leaving
I swear
it's the last time
and I swear
it's my last try
and I swear
it's my last try

And we'll talk about leaving town
and we'll talk about leaving town
