Nobody Walks

from by Pentacon Six

lyrics

They tore down the neighbor's house for a parking lot
The tore down the corner store for an overpass
They filled in the public pool out of laziness
And now everything is rubber, steel, and glass

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks
Nobody walks

They sold off the library to a drive-through chain
And built up a highway in my bedroom
None of it has ever satisfied the crowd
It's just an endless concrete-colored gloom

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks

Drop billions on the concrete
The freeway's got to expand
Put living in the backseat
This car's wish is our command

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks
Nobody walks
