Born in this place 
You only see so far 
Hear what we say 

If we put the truth in your hands 
Would you really like to know 
Kansas city milkman 

A row of houses 
Through the dawn 
A sleeping city 
Where I was born 
I hear laughter 
In the early light 
Outside the playground 
Were I learned to fight 

Born in this place 
You only see so far 
Hear what we say 

If we put the truth in your hands 
Would you really like to know 
Kansas city milkman 

I read the papers 
Every word 
My only access 
To the outside world 
Yeah ... survival 
That's my game 
Just a common man 
In that there is no shame ... is there? ... 

Too much talking 
Information ... in the hands of the few 
All the talking 
Dis-information ... that we take for the truth 

Born in this place 
You only see so far 
Hear what we say 

The world is a stage 
And we know just who you are 
What part do you play? 

If we put the truth in your hands 
Would you really like to know 
Kansas city milkman
