This song is by Bitch and appears on the album First Bite (1980).

He's walking down a dirty alley
A bottle of bad booze in his hand
A worn old raincoat's hanging shabby
On a broken sculpture once called a man

And no one really wants to know him
He wanders aimless on and on
The senile drug is seeping through him
This human life is a just a "con"

It's cold outside he ain't got nothing
He only owns what he has on
The shadow of a man is lying
On a park bench all alone

He wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Just wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars

He's freezing in the death of nighttime
Newspapers covering his bed
People read the banner headline
But no one sees inside his head

He wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Just wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Watchout

Yes, no one really wants to know him
He wanders aimless on and on
The senile drug is seeping through him
This human life is a just a "con"

He wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Just wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars

He wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Just wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars

He wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Just wanted to be in the headlines
He wanted to reach for the stars
Wanted to reach for the stars
