"Hope" as written by and John Murphy....
Dahmer got fifteen life sentences today
I'm visiting my friends in the hospital
Too much fear, too little life for much too long
And all the traffic of the windshields
Filled with needy and greedy eyes

Someone placed a rose on the sidewalk for St. Monica
See the shabby man in the park
Drop a sleeping bag like it was his dead soul
See the Cadillac lady, see the skateboard boy
See the man in the park hold the crinkled cardboard sign

Will work for the food please
The lady steps out of her sports club
In her pink sports clothes handing
Her valet ticket to the valet

There's one man on each bus stop bench
One with a bridled retriever for eyes
One with a shabby T-shirt that reads
Where exactly we are
