Man on a sidewalk stone cold, he's carryin' everyone's load
And a tear in his eye mirrors moon in black sky
His dreams have been buildin' too high

Now he's findin' he's lost every way, hopes shatterin' one by one day
Don't you trust no one's heart 'cause they'll tear you apart
Then they'll laugh as you're runnin' away

"The time has now gone" said the boy on the run
To the crowd as they all turned him away

Don't you give me no hard luck I pray, don't you give me more reasons to hate
'Cause the saints of your yard have been acting too hard
Won't you clear out before it's too late

"The time has now gone" said the man with the gun
To the crowd as they all turned away
"The time has now gone" said the man with the gun
To the crowd as they all turned away
