Lyrics:

Urban Dream

The entrance is right around the corner
an old man sells news at the door
neon lights shine from the ceiling
french fries lay on the floor
It's a pakistani cooking the meals
a red light lady with a wolly haired dog
beside a strange guy who's turning the wheels
and a chinese waitress watching the clock

It's somewhere 'round midnight
the darkness spits out her kids
survivors of daylight enter the restaurant
more than this house admits
not the lightest gleam of hope in their eyes
they flee out of their lonely homes
into the nightlife right 'round the corner
into the hamburger pleasure dome

Keep dreaming the urban dream
keep dreaming the urban dream

They're all very different, nothing in common
except their urban dream
Out of the city, back to the country
keep dreamin' the urban dream
The old man sold all his newspapers now
the cook is cleaning the stoves
meanwhile the waitress is sweeping the floor
time flows

Keep dreaming the urban dream
keep dreaming the urban dream
they say, hey, move out to the country
where you belong
hey, move out to the country
where the good life still goes on
Keep dreaming the urban dream
