Sober Cries in a Drunken World

Sober cries in a drunken world
Visiting friends in an abandoned house
Finding time with a broken watch
To have a drink with a mouse

Driven across the sea
And takin’ a train to nowhere
Easy at worst a careful life
Livin’ without a care

Thoughtful are those
Whose hearts are kind
Chatting with the deaf
And touring the sights with the blind

Giving free haircuts to the barber
Breaking their bread with the baker
It’s nice to those
Who saves the soul of the ‘taker

Silent nights in a noisy town
To those who sleep not in a bed
For when the sun comes ‘round
It’s those whose dreams are as real as the earth o’erhead.
