Hold your head up high
Cuz tomorrow you may die
There's no one safe around here
No one safe around here
Stand your ground
Til you're the last one in town

Someone that you trust turned out to be a tricker
Smoking cigarettes getting stoned on liquor
Getting really dizzy, only getting sicker
Small problem now only seem bigger

Now America's a safe place if you wanna leave it
The rhetoric is there if you're gonna read it
And the huddled masses, the machine to feed it
The rich look down to the rabble to bleed it

Oddly enough it gets tough when you're runnin'
So you brush off the homeless when they start comin'
And LA and Broadway are wicked when they're watchin'
And your back up man, your back up man, your back up ain't workin'

Okay, well, this is the city of Los Angeles and it never sleeps. It may look like it, but it doesn't. It lives and breathes nocturnally. So when you got no place to sleep at night, and you're huddled and cold, this song goes out to the city's forgotten. Hey, Tim, take it home...

There's an underlying reason why she can't keep it goin'
In the middle of the night they found her frozen
And the Wal Mart sign just keeps on glowin'
And the winds of change keep on blowin'
