    Lyrics

    As I walk along these streets
    I see a man that walks alone
    Distant echo of people's feet
    He has no place to call his own
    A shot rings out from a roof overhead
    A crackhead asks for change nearby
    An old man lies in an alleyway dead
    A little girl lost just stands there and cries

    Chorus:
    What would you do (What would you do)
    if it was you (if it was you)
    Would you take everything
    For granted like you do

    A boy just 13 on the corner for sale
    Swallows his pride for another hit
    Overpopulation there's no room in jail
    And most of you don't give a shit
    That your daughters are porno stars
    And your sons sell death to kids
    So lost in your little worlds
    Your little worlds you'll never fix

    Chorus:
    What would you do (What would you do)
    if it was you (if it was you)
    Would you take everything
    For granted like you do

    You turn away (x4)

    As I walk along the streets
    Soaking up the acid rain
    Underneath the taxicabs
    I hear the streets cry out in vain

    Chorus:
    What would you do (What would you do)
    if it was you (if it was you)
    Would you take everything
    For granted like you do (x2)
