An old man lying by the road 
Black as night 
He's got his finger on the trigger
An easy target in sight
He's got no future, no family tree 
He's got a three dollar bottle 
And he drinks 'til he can't see 
All night, all night 

A young girl waiting on a line 
Eight a.m., she's got a six month old burden 
Willpower's withering thin 
An unwed mother beaten by her trade 
Each week her welfare reminds her 
Of mistakes she never made 
Oh no

Now what has that to say about tomorrow 
What has that to show for today 
Noah thought to build an ark 
Before the heavens washed it all away 
Away

A baby crying through a dream 
An afterthought 
Mother is seething for pleasure 
After the poison is bought 
His eyes are tainted, staggered is his breath 
Oh God, he's addicted 
Addicted to death 
Oh, no

Now what has that to say about tomorrow 
What has that to show for today, yeah, yeah, yeah
Noah thought to build an ark 
Before the heavens washed it all away 
Away, yeah

Oh, now
Now what has that to say about tomorrow
What is that to show for today, yeah, yeah, yeah
Noah thought to build an ark
Before the heavens washed it all away
