From the recording Steak and Eggs

Lyrics

What you see in your heart
and what you see out the window
are totally different
and you want to know why.

You live on a street
where most of the cars
are noisy and dirty.
And you don't have a gun
somehow you'd really really love
to shoot the tires off one.

And you can't fall asleep
and you can't stay awake
got to find
something outside
that will match what you see
in your mind.

So you turn on your side
so you can see out the window.
A police siren cries
and a small dog is barking.

What you read in the paper
and what you see on the TV
and what you see in your heart
and what you see out the wiindow
are totally different
and you want to know why.

You live on a street
in a corner building
with a poster for chemical milk.
And you never will have media access.

And you can't fall asleep
and you can't stay awake
got to find
something outside
that will match what you see
in your mind.

So you turn on the light;
step into the kitchen.
You put on some toast
and it soon catches fire.
