In The Meantime

There’s a ton of bad

in the alleys

There’s a ton of good

gone to ground

A ton of fear

on the sidewalks

And hypocrisy

abounds


There’s lots of gold

for the rich folk

There’s mostly dirt

for the poor

A pack of lies

on the billboards

Enough greed

to start a war


In the meantime

In the meantime

In the meantime

in this town

Hoods are looting

Cops are shooting

It’s a mean town

up and down


In the meantime

In the meantime

In the meantime

in this town

Choirs are singing

Knees are bending

There’s a clean town

to be found


There’s loads of dislike

in the backwoods

A bunch of disdain

in the towers

A lot of hate

for each other

And no balancing

of powers

There’s legal honor

in the courtrooms

Hard-nosed truth

on the farms

A place of peace

up the mountains

And no carrying

firearms

In the meantime

In the meantime

In the meantime

in this town

Cars are burning

Freaks are highing

It’s a mean town

up and down


In the meantime

In the meantime

In the meantime

in this town

Hearts are crying

Souls are dying

There’s a clean town

to be found


In the meantime

bells are ringing

In the meantime

blood flows free

In the meantime

crooks are skimming

In the meantime

where’s the key?

In the meantime

are we happy?

In the meantime

who can tell?

In the meantime

is this heaven?

Or is mean town

really hell?


In the meantime

folks keep building

In the meantime

hope rebounds

In the meantime

inside dwellings

There’s a clean town

to be found
