sidewalk lyrics – icehouse

whoa oh (whoa oh)

sidewalk, sleep on the sidewalk, the ragman stands at the end of a line
his eyes burn hard in the light of day, so proud of the american way

but it’s a lie, yeah, lie, and you believe every word
well, it’s a lie, yeah, lie, but what goes on in your mind?
and when the walls come down on the american dream
you’re gonna sleep on the sidewalk

in your hands, dirt and blood on your hands
in your day, you didn’t need anyone
so look around, remember, yeah, these are your friends

but it’s a lie, yeah, lie, and you believe every word
well, it’s a lie, yeah, lie, but what goes on in your mind?
but when the walls come down, yeah when the walls come down
when the walls come down, on the american dream

you’re gonna sleep on the sidewalk, sleep with the redhead
when you’re so proud, it’s the american way, it’s the american way
sidewalk, sidewalk, sleep on the, sleep on the sidewalk
on the american dream
