Fat man looking in a shining steel
Thin man looking at his last meal
Hollow man looking in a cottonfield
For dignity

Wise man looking in a blade of grass
A young man looking in the shadows that pass
Poor man looking in painted glass
For dignity

Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve
Somebody said dignity was the last to leave
Went into the cities, went into the towns
Into the land of the midnight sun

Searching high, searching low
Searching everywhere I know
Asking the cops wherever I go
Have you seen dignity?

Blind man breaking out of a trance
Puts both his hands into the pocket of chance
Hoping to find one circumstance
Of dignity

Stranger stares down into the light
From a platinum window in a Mexican night
Searching every bloodsucking thing in sight
For dignity

I went down where the vultures feed
I would've gone deeper, but there wasn't any need
Heard the tongues of angels, heard the tongues of men
It all sounded no different to me

Soul of a nation is under the knife
Death is standing in the doorway of life
In the next room, a man is fighting with his wife
Over dignity
