Lyrics:

Empty Eyes and Sad, Cold Faces
You walk on by and don't even say it
I care 'bout you
Care 'bout you.

It's on the news, it's all over TV
They tell you the truth, they have nowhere to sleep
It's true
It's true

CHORUS:
And you say
That's life these days
Can't spare no change
get outta my way
and you say close the door
close the door honey, it's cold
It's cold

A baby sleeps in a parked care down the street
Her momma cries, she aint got nothin' for to eat
No food
No food

And a man stands strong at his job he tells them lies
Says he's got a house in the city on the west side
No roof
No roof

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
But one nickel will do
It'll help buy me a cup of coffee
and I know you hate the truth
but I can't lie to you

CHORUS X2
