Sirens ring, shots rang out.
Gm
Bb
A stranger cries screams out loud. I had my world strapped against my back I held my hands, never knew how to act. Well the same black line that was drawn on you Was drawn on me, and now its drawn me in. 6th avenue heartache Below me there was a homeless man. Was singing a songs I knew complete On the steps alone, his guitar in hand His 50 years he stood where he stands Walking home on those streets The river winds move my feet The subway steam like silhouettes in dreams Stood by me (stood by me) just like moonbeams
F
C
Look out the window. Down up on that street
G
Bb
I am gone like at midnight words that mend
F
but I sit Here with six strings
C
G
layed against that wall and all his things
Bb
they all look so small
F
C
I got my fingers crossed on a shooting star
G
Bb
just like me just moved -?-

Do you ever stop to count all the invitations At the end of the day when it comes down to one decision Of dead beat girls and freaks at a peoples convention All these sugars with no vitamin sensation Do you ever stop to look over old relations Or look to the belly of another one's emotions Someone young in the winds of a revolution Trying to save his face in the evolution Asleep at the wheel No windshield But you know that the streets Here don't change He's kept alive in the chain of mental starvation Bone rail skinny, only feeding off frustration Unlike you who seem bred from corruption Feeding off the plates of an ununited nation Asleep at the wheel No windshield But you know that the streets Here don't change With a lover in the street whose waiting to make a connection To be the mother to the soul of your next abortion She'll steal your money with the eyes of a baby's complexion Then she'll laugh at you and your sexual invention Smelling like a rose, in the flowers of devotion Devoted the heat of a spotlight in motion With a face full of mud even though you were only joking As if you really understood the value of isolation Asleep at the wheel No windshield But you know that the streets Here don't change Your tongue so fast like a freight train coming on rollin' Every smile you give's just to keep your mouth from clothin' Every engine burns as a sign of the explosion Locked in neutral your engines are broken Like candle wax that sun melts into the ocean Like the moon that lights the tracks of the old train station You can color in the lines of mother earth's addictions And not hold a gun in the face of the earth's abduction Asleep at the wheel No windshield But you know that the streets Here don't change

I told you so God bless the void Of my daydreams Back in the snow Making angel wings Slow motion dancing lights have gone Sail beneath the burning yellow sun I'm calling out to the deep ends of my bones Time says nothing back But I told you so I told you so Still waters rising in my mind Black and deep Smoke behind my eyes Last night I could not sleep at all I hallucinated that you were in my arms To be in your heart I filled my own Love says nothing back But I told you so

Guitar Solo - Same chords as verse
I'm still here And climbing every rung If someone saw something Now Someone speak up Back over the rotted bridge I cross Open up these graves Let these bodies talk I'm Burried under leaves blood red and gold Death says nothing back But I told you so I told you so....

So long ago I don't remember when
F#
Bm
That's when they say I lost my only friend They said she died easy of a broken heart disease As I listened through the cemetary trees I seen the sun coming up at the funeral at dawn I've long broken all of human law It always seemed such a waste She always had a pretty face I wondered why she hung around this place

Em
A
We can drive it home ... with one headlight. She said its cold it feels like independence day And I can't break away from this parade But theres got to be an opening Somewhere here in front of me Through this maze of ugliness and greed I seen the sign up ahead at the county line bridge Saying all is good and nothing less its dead Runnin' till she's out of breath She ran until there's nothing left She hit the end its just her window ledge
G
F#
Hey hey hey... This place is old feels just like a beat up truck I turn the engine but the engine doesn't turn With smells of cheap ol' wine and cigarettes This place is always such a mess Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn So alone I feel just like somebody else Man I ain't changed but I know I ain't the same But somewhere here in between These city walls and dyin' dreams I think her death it must be killing me
G
F#m
Hey hey hey...
