Lyrics

In Chicago
There's an underground
Below the city
Right downtown
In the nights
Cold an' dark
Rolled up in blankets
Rags and scarves

Time forgot
People too
Alcohol
Drugs abuse
Mental illness
Personal sin
Society's greed says
They ain't gonna win

They lit a candle
By the loading Dock
Held hands an' prayed
Where the homeless flock

Tough, relentless
Tryin' to cope
Another died
An' they're starvin' for hope

Pilate drives by
Fast as he can
These nameless faceless,
Got unwashed hands
Survival warfare
In this urban squeeze
Ain't no sin in dyin'
Between two thieves

They lit a candle
By the loading Dock
Held hands an' prayed
Where the homeless flock

In Chicago
There's an underground
Below the city
Right downtown
In the nights
Cold an' dark
Rolled up in blankets
Rags and scarves
