When the lights go out in the street
the bums and tricks have long been asleep
aint nobody gonna travel with me,
cause its a beautiful world.

We were young, we were hungry and meek
a missing finger and scars in between
when hungers king and povertys queen
its a beautiful world

There's a blue sky hanging over our head
your friends are all drunk and your enemies dead.
The county judge is wondering why
he tips his hat as he walks by.
There's a hangman and he's stretching for sun
swings once a day from dusk until dawn
when the river of life fills up with your blood
its a beautiful world.

Yeah, can you see the power lines
going out of business and the one way signs
god in heaven or the man in the moon
i can't find no elbow room

the ship is sinking with no mayday
a thousand people drowning out in the bay
you sit and smile while you paddle away
its a beautiful world.

There's a blue sky hanging over our head
your friends are all drunk and your enemies dead.
The county judge is wondering why
he tips his hat as he walks by.
There's a hangman and he's stretching for sun
swings once a day from dusk until dawn
when the river of life fills up with your blood
its a beautiful world.
