Three Days

26 Aug 1999

When I woke up it was raining
I heard the sound of a wet street outside
When I woke up I felt clean again
Felt good enough to take on three days at a time

Over on Park Street someone just died
Shot in the head on a Saturday night
The cops chased some kid around
No one’s any wiser about it now

The pews are empty except for a few
And I want to be wrong about you
You want protection and I understand
But how can you save what you don’t command

Could you hear the shots - at night
Would you walk down that street - alone
How do you know when to get out
What do you do when a deal goes down

When I fell asleep it was raining
Rain streaked the window, cars drove by
Tell me, do you feel clean now
Are you living so that others can die
