The Junkie Song

This song is by The Be Good Tanyas and appears on the album Chinatown (2003) and on the compilation album A Collection (2012).

Took a walk in my neighborhood
Two in the morning, by the skytrain station
Streets were full of junkies and homeless
And they all wanted somethin'
They all wanted somethin'

What am I supposed to do
There are too many of you, too many of you
Give some change look you in the eye
Say that I too am human, I too am human

And don't we all hover
Between apathy and compassion
Fill up all our days with so much distraction
It makes it easier not to see
What we don't want to
But we all live here, we all live here
We all live here
