Very cool sound. Sounds like Bowie meets Iggy Pop. Very original sound and instrumentation. Love the way the backup vocals mix in, especially toward the end. Very good and original sound with very soulful message.

WELL, I LIKE THE WAY THE SONG STARTS OUT AND THE SECONDARY SINGER IS COMING BACK AND FORTH. GOOD TONES ON THE VOICES.
SOUNDS A LITTLE ENGLISH TO ME, EARLY 70'S

Lyrics

SILENT STREETS___ ©1993-2005

Silent streets and the city sleeps
somewhere someone cries themselves to sleep.
and when I don't come home at all
and I don't even call
it's cause I'm out banging my head into the wall (that is all)

I'm drinking and thinking and shooting pool
thinking life is wonderful everything is cool (what a fool)

And when I come home late at night
you say it's too late to play
come to bed - yes rest your head

but as I lay next to you
all these thoughts and the music
keep running and playing through my head

Thru my head, thru my head through my head
yes the music keeps running and playing through my head

Silent streets and the city sleeps
I lay here dreaming and scheming
and pray my soul to keep

I think of the things we've done
and what we've said
the words you wrote-your letters I have read

and as I lay next to you
all thoughts and the music
keep running and playing through my head
