imagine the space as it used to be
there were fields of corn
there were big oak trees
but a woman in a suit bulldozed it clear
built a concrete world full of crocodile tears

and we don't understand
that we all have a part in a government plan
it's a hard shot
to be the people in the place that the world forgot
in a paperback town

but I know I know I know we can be free
though no guardian angel up above
has kept an eye on me
and at night I listen to the sirens moan
for a broken heart from a broken home
so many people are so alone
in a paperback town

and one day soon I'm gonna write it all down
I live my life in a paperback town

oooh--in a paperback town
oooh--in a paperback town

I'm gonna take my troubles
gonna pack my bags
gonna fly my kite for a different flag
I'll sing my song
From the top of the hill
when the night is cold
and the wind is chill

'cos I don't understand
why I should be part of another man's plan
it's a hard shot
for the people in the place
that the world forgot
in a paperback town

live and die here
in a paperback town
wonder why here
in a paperback town

but I know I know I know we can be free |
though no guardian angel up above
has kept an eye on me
and at night I listen to the rain fall down
and I shake with the fear that we all will drown
but my words don't even make a sound
in a paperback town

and one day soon I'm gonna write it all down
I live my life in a paperback town
