Brother, you've fallen far behind
What is it that's on your mind?
Sister, oh, how do you decide?
What do you see through your clouded eyes?

On every corner I turn to
Some variation of, "Help me please"
Can't pretend I don't see you there
How should I feel?

Brother, you've fallen to your knees
What do your children need?
The distance is never out of reach
There's only inches between you and me

On every corner I turn to
Some variation of, "Help me please"
Can't pretend I don't see you there
How should I feel?

Hey mister, well, I'm lookin' your way, you know
I wouldn't ask if things weren't like they were today
Count up the corners of 'em, add up the dollars for 'em

Hey mister, well, I'm lookin' your way, you know
Ten thousand of 'em all over town, I wouldn't ask if things
Weren't like they were today, but is it really helpin', whatever I do?

Hey mister, well, I'm lookin' at you, you know
Will I feel good about it, will I feel a fool?
I hate to beg, 'cause I feel like such a fool?

On every corner I turn to
Some variation of, "Help me please"
Can't pretend I don't see you there
How should I feel?
