Reality

This song is by Abraham Cloud and appears on the album Voyage To Afghanistan (2000).

On the 15th floor, where the bosses cry for more and more delightful things to crawl across the floor
They have a word they use to justify every time they steal, cheat, or lie...
REALITY, it seems is a fistful of broken dreams
You do what you have to do and not what you want to
I can't face REALITY
On the street below, there's some faces we all know
Homeless Joe and bob-the-boy-next-door
They sell directions to the houses of the stars
They live in boxes and cash their checks at bars
REALITY, it seems is a fistful of broken dreams
You do what you have to do and not what you want to
REALITY, my friend, that's what's left at the bitter end
A crumb from the cake carved in the face of disaster
I can't face...
Reality
I was awoken by a scream the other night
They say she even tried to put up a fight
I rolled over and turned out the light on another life
I saw this child, an innocent child, standin' in the street screamin', "where's my mamma."
