Things I See (On My Way To Work)

from As Big As You Can Get It! by drunkdude69



You know what they are, my friend. You've seen them too.


I wake up in the middle of the night
With the TV set still on
Static sounds like pounding surf
But then the dream is gone
The only sand here trickles through an hourglass while I sleep
'Til I'm up with the dawn again
And on my way to work I see

Interstate, guard rail, concrete, rusty nail
Smokestack, steel mill, train track, landfill
Street light, road sign, high tension power line
Dive bar, pay phone, junkyard, traffic cone

In my dreams the air is clean
The beach is crystal white
But this ain't no dream (this is reality!)
This ain't no dream

I find
I spend my time staring at the clock
Waiting for the stroke of five
No walls, no work, just ancient cities
Rising in my mind
But there are no ruins waiting outside the office door
Just all the same damn things
I saw the day before

And you know what they are
'Cause you've seen 'em, too
(I'm talking about)

Billboard, blacktop, speed-trap, traffic cop
Hotel, motel, all-night truck stop
Broken glass, blown tire, brown grass, trash fire
Chain link, barbed wire, high rise getting higher

In my dreams the grass is green and
I can see the stars at night

In my dreams everything seems like
One day it'll be all right
