    Lyrics

    The streets of my town are not
    what they were
    They are haloed in anger, bitter
    and hurt
    And it's not so you'd notice but
    it's a sinister thing
    Like the wheels of ambition at
    the christening

    So I went out walking on the
    streets of the dead
    With a chip on my shoulder
    And a voice in my head
    It said you have been brought here
    Though you don't know what for

    Well the mystery train is coming
    right to your door

    And I hear you calling, you
    don't have to call so loud
    I see you falling and you don't
    have to walk so proud
    You can run all night but we
    can take you where
    You can cry like an angel

    There were high school night dances
    When we played stump the band
    We were raising each other
    In a strange land
    There were hard pills to swallow
    But we drank 'em all down
    Oh the nights were too short then
    And now they're a little too long

    I hear you calling and you
    don't have to call so loud
    I see you falling and you don't
    have to walk so proud
    You can run all night but we
    can take you where
    You can shout out in anger
    You can laugh like a fool
    You can cry like an angel

    So look homeward baby
    Keep your eyes on the sky
    They will never forgive you
    So don't ask them to try
    This is your party, I know
    it's not your ideal
    May we all find salvation
    In professions that heal

    I hear you calling, you
    don't have to call so loud
    I see you falling and you don't
    have to walk so proud
    You can run all night but we
    can take you where
    You can shout out an answer
    You can laugh like a fool

    You can call up to heaven
    We'll be listening to you
    You can sing hallelujah
    You can fly like a bird
    You can cry like angel
    When there are no words
