hidden
I was walking around just to
face in the crowd
Trying to keep myself out of the rain
Saw a vagabond king wear a styrofoam crown
Wondered if
I might end up the same
There's a man out on the corner
Singing old songs about change
Everybody's got their cross to bear,
these days

She came looking for some shelter
With a suitcase full of dreams
To a motel room on the boulevard
I guess she's trying to be James Dean
She's seen all the disciples
and all the wannabe's
No one wants to be themselves,
these days
Still there's nothing to hold on to,
but these days

These days, the stars ain't
out of reach
These days, there ain't a ladder
on the streets
Oh, no, no
These days are fast
Nothing lasts, in this graceless age
There ain't nobody left but us, these days

Jimmy Shoes, he busted both his legs
Trying to learn to fly
From a second story window
He just jumped and closed his eyes
His momma said he was crazy
He said
“Momma, I've gotta try"
Don't you know that all my heroes died
And I guess
I'd rather die than fade away, yeah

These days, the stars seem
out of reach, yeah
These days, there ain't a ladder
on the streets
Oh, no, no
These days are fast
Nothing lasts, it's all graceless age
Even innocence has caught
the midnight train
There ain't nobody left but us, these days

I know
Rome's still burning
Though the times have changed
This world keeps turning round and round
and round and round, these days

These days, the stars ain't
out of reach
These days, there ain't a ladder
on the streets
Oh, no, no
These days are fast
Nothing lasts, in this graceless age
There ain't nobody left but us, these days

These days, the stars ain't
out of reach
These days, there ain't a ladder
on the streets
Oh, no, no
These days are fast
Nothing lasts, in this graceless age
There ain't no time to waste
There ain't nobody left to take the blame
Oh, no, no
There ain't nobody left but us, these days
Ain't nobody left but us, these days
