I walk down the street another mans dream lies broken at my feet
Ain't nothing too unusual just a couple kids shooting their favorite sweets
Lord knows I need to break away
Now there's a priest on the corner selling one night stands
This whole city's a garbage can
And I'm sick of being just another garbage man
I need to get away, to find a better way

Sometimes I think these streets can talk
And now their telling me it's time to walk
I've taken all that I can take
Not again and they can't make me

I face the end with no beginning
Then I saw the devil grinning
And I knew I had to break away
Well it's my last chance to get it right
God help me through this night
Give me the strength to break away

One time I thought we'd have it all
Now we're dancing at the Beggars Ball
One more night, just one more day
Enough time to find a better way

And don't speak to me of destiny
You've made your point I don't agree
The soldiers march, the poets dream
Of lost but not forgotten dreams

I face the end with no beginning
Then I saw the devil grinning
And I knew I had to break away
Well it's my last chance to get it right
God help me through this night
Give me the strength to break away

I face the end with no beginning
Then I saw the devil grinning
And I knew I had to break away
