"Powdertown" as written by and Gregory J Macainsh....
Josie lives in a two room flat
Just across from the elevator door
She spends her days just gettin' high
Up on the sixteenth floor
She's working nights but she'd rather not say
Just what she does to collect her pay
Not everything is heaven sent
It is what it is and it pays the rent
Some dreams were never meant in Powdertown

Frankie looks like a nice young cop
But he's got an old cops face
He believed in truth and justice
Till they took him off the case
Now he's walkin' the beat on the wrong side of town
Bustin' drunks and shakin' them down
Don't ask him who he's working for
All he knows is the laws the law
And it'll be like this for evermore in Powdertown

The thunder rolls and the rain pours down
But it can't wash away the dirt
It can't wash away the memories
That make this old town hurt
Years go by Everyone gets older
The steel begins to rust
Life goes on and the lights go out
And dreams they turn to dust

Stevie says he's a business man
But that's no business of yours
He buys and sells commodities
That come from distant shores
Briefcase full of unmarked bills
Come get your love get your thrills
He's the man who sells you fun
Hides his face but he shows his gun
Some people never see the sun in Powdertown

So if you're driving through one day
And see that exit sign
You might slow down take a look
Risk a parking fine
But if you're smart you'll pass on by
Get where you're goin' kiss this place goodbye
Not everything is heaven sent
It is what it is and it pays the rent
Some dreams were never meant like Powdertown
