Oh, come quick, yeah the doctor is sick lying their on the street.

And the circus performers they all tried to warn us of the blistering heat.

There ain't no water so what is the bother with trying to drink?

Whats the new plan when your medicine man has gone too dead to think?

[chorus]
And I saw you lookin' at, I saw you lookin' at me. Well I saw you lookin' at, I saw you lookin' at me. And that white picket fence that you had as a kid, it ain't white anymore and the wood has gone thin.

The streets are all empty, the stores have been picked clean and the lights are all out. The doors are all closed and the windows all broken and the buildings torn down.

And the dogs own the night but they've all lost their bite and they're too tired to growl. And we tried throwing stones but you can't stop the moans of that hovering crowd.

[chorus]
And I saw you crying at, I saw you crying at night. Well I saw you crying at, I saw you crying at night. And that white picket fence that you used to have, it ain't white anymore and the paint is gone bad.

Well the drugs have worn off, and there's blood in your cough, and you're starting to turn. And drinkers will rise as we blankly stare at their growing concern.

And the preacher still preaches from outside the steeple saying "when will they learn", but the congregation's gone and they're on the church lawn and they're watching it burn.

[chorus]
And I saw you screaming out, well I saw you screaming out. Yeah and I saw you screaming out, I saw you screaming out. And that white picket fence that you had when you were young, it ain't white anymore, and the damage has been done.

You're too sick to scream, and the last of your dreams they got taken last night. And they're growing in facing that all of the nations are starting to fight.

And the mothers are crying and children are dying, and you're losing your sight. Yeah, and it won't be long now, we'll all be gone walking into the light.

[chorus]
And I saw you reaching out, I saw you reaching for me. Yeah I saw you reaching out, I saw you reaching for me. And that white picket fence that you had as a kid, it ain't shinin' anymore, and it never ever did.

Ever did.
Oh, never did.
No, never did.
No, No, Never did.
