real life in the big city lyrics – diesel boy

the sun comes up on santa rosa
the garbage men are cleaning up the street

there’s a junkie sleeping in the shadows
and all around me i can feel the weight
up in the sky i see orion
and he’s telling me a lie
the windows laugh at me ’cause it’s so easy to see through me
connect the dots and do your time
every thought i have reminds me not to trust the headlines
eat a peach and walk the line
from up on the roof i can see the sunset
and everybody coming home from work
except for me and my headache
’cause loneliness a tired man makes
