World of friends and I'm a stranger, so hard to circulate,
Crowded streets, I see no faces, no place for a changing soul.
Like the ship on an angry ocean, a Ferris Wheel that spins too fast,
For a dog snarling in the corner, Heaven never seemed so far away.
Maybe the game is someone else's, get tired of playing along,
Or when you win, taking chances, your way is yours alone.
For an artist in a hungry basement, falling rain on a lonely man,
For a kid fighting with his father, Heaven never seemed so far away.
