Your streets, well they welcomed me in
happy homes filled my mind with prospects
in the breast of that city
a man could see straight through
to start all over again

I came in from the wilderness
drenched and dirty, wearing my regrets
in your liveliest places
you cleaned and dressed my wounds
and squared all of my debts

every road spits me out at the edge of town
your street signs, they make it so I can't get around
every person that I see they pass without a sound
I'm not sure how I got lost
please just tell me how I can be found

One day, well your heart just went cold,
chained the doors and sent the workers home
You left me helpless and hopeless
with no place to go
and nothing with which to carry on

You covered up your discontent
hid lonely factories 'neath a swell of business
You turned your attention
to suburbs and services
filling houses that would never be homes

Economy like love
is never sustained
by an exchange of services
Nothing can replace
the sweat and sacrifice
that builds
and brings about something new
