See my brother in the desert at night
He's gotta sleep with his finger on the trigger
People starving and they don't know why
Small world can't get no bigger
See my sister on 10th avenue
She's gotten slim and the girl’s getting slimmer
Her kids are turning tricks or nothing to do
Sick world can't get much sicker

I'm kicking off my singer’s shoes
And I'm a hitting on a silver spoon
And dancing on our grave our love is over now
You looked so pretty in your sailor suit
I'd like to stick it to your baby blues
But I've been hit and wounded, sail on morpheus seas of emptiness
I came with flowers for our last goodbye
You didn't care you didn't even cry
But smiled as if to say that's just the way it goes
And that hurts baby
So I'm hanging up my golden suit
To pay the needle and the spoon their dues
For long ago tommorows I won't spend with you

I can sit here but I'm never alone
Nice try babyI know better
Hang up loving like a cheap telephone
You've been big baby
I'll be bigger
You can bait me but I'll never rise
Sister sin don't need one more sinner
Look on me as your man overboard
I'm doing fine but I've felt better

I'm kicking off my singer’s shoes
And I'm hitting on a silver spoon
And dancing on our grave our love is over now
Well I was looking in your Mommas eyes
And let me tell you it comes as no surprise
To see this side of you tonight my babychile
Well take a look at how your Daddy stands
The way he's sweating when he shakes my hand
But no one else has hurt him since your Momma left
So I'm hanging up my golden suit
To pay the needle and the spoon their dues
For long ago tommorows I can't spend with you

See my brother in the desert at night
He's got to sleep with his finger on the trigger
People starving and they don't know why
Small world can’t get no bigger
See my sister on 10th avenue
She's gotten slim and the girl’s getting slimmer
Her kids are turning tricks or nothing to do
Sick world can't get much sicker

I can sit here but I'm never alone
Nice try babyI know better
Hang up loving like a cheap telephone
You've been big baby
I'll be bigger
You can bait me but I'll never rise
Sister sin don't need one more sinner
Look on me as your man overboard
I'm doing fine but I've felt better

See my brother in the desert at night
He's got to sleep with his finger on the trigger
People starving and they don't know why
He's a black man don't you call him n*****
See my sister on 10th avenue
She's gotten slim and the girl’s getting slimmer
My kids are turning tricks got nothing to do
Sick world can't get much sicker

Is there any love between us baby?
Any love left in us baby?
Shine your love down on me baby
Shine your ever loving light down on me
Shine the ever loving light of Jesus down on me yeah
Shine it down on me like a lovers prayer
