Canyon – Cortez The Killer lyrics

People on the street need a place to go
People on the street need a place to go
Walkin' with the beat if it's not too slow
Walkin' with the beat if it's not too slow
When the night's dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and the concrete canyon walls

People on the street need a place to go
People on the street need a place to go

Walkin' through the night up and down the avenue
Lookin' for a place
A place to go
A place to go
There's a muffled scream from the alley scene
From the alley scene comes a muffled scream
And the siren wails while the system fails
In the steaming heat people walk in the street
People can't run and hide
If you want to feel good then you gotta feel good inside

People on the street need a place to go
People on the street need a place to go

Rising through the grates come the fumes of industry
Floating to the sky
Keep walkin' with the beat, walkin' with the beat
Keep walkin' with the beat, walkin' with the beat
Keep walkin' with the beat, walkin' with the beat
When the night's dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and the concrete canyon walls

People on the street need a place to go
People on the street need a place to go
