lyrics

Smiling faces in far away towns
Built of sand and granite and towers of steel
Where the simple folk live their simple lives
And they never question that anything’s real
As they make their way to their simple jobs
Making long distance calls in those towers of steel
And they're bored but they're happy, content and fulfilled
And they never wonder how they're supposed to feel

Scowling faces in far away towns
Built of dirt and garbage and towers of steel
Where the poor and mistreated attempt to find solace
And question and wonder why anything's real
With their downcast eyes and their nervous hands
They hide in the shadows of towers of steel
And they wish for some mercy without any hope
And question and wonder how they're supposed to feel

Stupid young faces in Midwestern towns
Built of pine and sandstone and towers of steel
Where the callow and foolish look on to the future
And breaking young minds doubt that anything's real
And they hope for some splendor they know they won't find
And eventually die in those towers of steel
But they fight on forever regardless of whether
They'll ever find out how they wanted to feel

I'll sit here and wait for the sunlight to take me away
Eventually die in those towers of steel
