    Lyrics

    well, I was raised on a back street
    time's were tough, but kind of bittersweet
    left school when I was still a child
    hit the streets and started running wild
    hanging out in the neighborhood
    people said, "they're up to no good"
    never thought I'd ever make it through
    hey boy, what you gonna do

    crosstown traffic, sirens wailing, screaming in my ear
    it's got me on the run, gotta move on out of here

    I'm on a dead end street, on a dead end street
    well it's got me beat, on a dead end street
    I can't go no further, won't somebody rescue me
    from this dead end street, oh yeah

    they still talk about the big fight
    on the backstreet at midnight
    everybody heard the gunfire
    saw him dragged into the black maria
    now my best friend is doing time
    he's committed to a life of crime
    got a feeling I'll be next in line
    I wonder how can I get out in time

    I stepped into a movie, this can't be reality
    if I wasn't so lucky, I wonder where I'd be

    I'm on a dead end street, on a dead end street
    well it's got me beat, on a dead end street
    I can't go no further, won't somebody rescue me
    from this dead end street, oh yeah

    crosstown traffic, sirens wailing, screaming in my ear
    it's got me on the run, gotta move on outta here

    I'm on a dead end street, on a dead end street
    well it's got me beat, on a dead end street
    it's got me walking, it's got me talking
    I'm on a dead end street, I'm on a dead end street
    yeah, yeah-ee-yeah, yeah, whoo
