As I walk along these streets
I see a man that walks alone
Distant echo of people's feet
Has no place to call his own
A shot rings out from a roof over head
A crack head asks for change nearby
An old man lies in an alleyway dead
A little girl lost just stands there and cries


What would you do , if it was you
Would you take everything
For granted like you do


A boy just 13 on the corner for sale
Swallows his pride for another hit
Overpopulation there's no room in jail
But most of you don't give a shit
That your daughters are porno stars
And sons sell death to kids
Your'e so lost in your little worlds
Your little worlds you'll never fix

What would you do , if it was you
Would you take everything
For granted like you do

You turn away
As I walk along the streets
Soaking up the acid rain
Underneath the taxi cabs
I hear the streets cry out in vain

What would you do , if it was you
Would you take everything
For granted like you do
What would you do , if it was you
Would you take everything
For granted like you do
