    [ Billy Bragg and Natalie Merchant ]



    In a busy street
    A man sits down
    Oblivious to the traffic sounds
    No chaos
    No frenzied shrieking crowd
    Thank God their silence
    Walking heads bent down
    Come when they saw us
    Called it lethargy
    The treadmill turns
    There down below their feet

    Should I pray for an end to come
    Quickly (quickly), quickly (quickly)
    Or cross the waves of an angry sea
    Risking (risking)
    And braving (braving)
    The shipwreck and the mutiny assailing
    Assailing

    In a haunted doorway
    And from the light of day
    See another life fall to ruin in pain
    False smiles from even children it seems
    Landlocked ground for empty and lost dreams
    A league against me
    I hear him say
    It's not worth half the effort
    Or the price you pay

    Should I pray for an end to come
    Quickly (quickly), quickly (quickly)
    Or should I raise my face to the heavens above
    And tell God (dear God)
    Stop jeering (and jeering)
    As our human frailties and all
    Our failings
    Are we failing?

    Pound pound on an endless street
    Again and again the nightmare scene
    All strained against the tightened rope
    Not one with a lasting lingering hope
    There's evidence everywhere you see
    Put a quarter down at the newsstand
    So that you can read

    Should I pray for an end to come
    Quickly (quickly), quickly (quickly)
    Or should I raise my face to the clouds above
    Entreating (entreating)
    Their mercy (some mercy)
    But as clouds will do
    They'll rain down
    First gently (gently) and sweetly (so sweetly)
    Until they silence me
    With a burst of thunder (thunder) and lightning (and lightning)
    And helpless landlocked screaming
    I know God must be agreeing
    It's the worst part of watching
    It's the worst part of watching
    It's the worst part of watching
    It's the worst part
    Landlocked in screaming
    God must be agreeing
    To be helpless is the worst
    Must be the worst part of watching
    The worst part of watching
