We're lost and scattered, standing in the sun
in the shape and shade of a dying tree
"Purple Mountains Majesty" has been crucified
the dust blows through my hands in to your eyes

Pre -Chorus
City Streets and broken dreams 
try to sleep by any means 
the homeless look to you and me
Try to sleep by any means
City Streets and broken dreams
and the helpless look like you and me
Can't You See

One by Land and two by Sea
We're orphans of an American Dream
Stand Fight don't back down
Put hands in the air
let me see you out there
Don't be scared

Verse 2

No shadow of shame will darken our faces
We find the path We take our places
Cried a thousand tears
Walked 10,000 miles now my feet are weak
and our souls grow tired
Faster and faster and the plaster to the caster
Is the master of the disaster 
O' can't you see
It's faster and faster and faster and faster
It's faster and faster and the master of disaster
O' won't you see
Can't You See

Chorus (repeat)
