The mist creped in across the ocean,
Across the beach low on the ground.
So deadly cold, so deadly silent,
It hit the bridge across the bay
And floated slowly on it's way right into town.

A car bought cottage in a doorway,
A simple man lies down to sleep.
A simple man - a simple story.
A life of hardship, hunger, pain,
The simple man within the mist as lost again.

It's so strange that in this world full of commerce and gain,
Don't you think it seems so insane?
That with the knowledge we have and the price that we pay.
No one saved the simple man.

The simple man has no solution.
He has no voice that can be heard.
He doesn't know he has a problem.
He flickers out just like a light,
Because he never learn to struggle or to fight.

It's so strange that in this world full of commerce and gain,
Don't you think it seems so insane?
That with the knowledge we have and the price that we pay.
No one saved the simple man.

Ha... ha... ha...

That with the knowledge we have and the price that we pay.
No one saved the simple man.
