the street parade lyrics – clash

when i was waiting for your phone call
the one that never came
like a man about to burst
i was dying of thirst

though i will never fade
or get lost in this daze
though i will disappear
and join the street parade

it’s not too hard to cry
in these crying times
i’ll take my broken heart
and take it home in parts

but i will never fade
or get lost in this daze
though i will disappear
and join the street parade

i was in this place
the first church of the city
i saw tears on the face
the face of a visionary

though i will disappear
to join the street parade
disappear and fade
into the street parade
