There's A Man Down Houston Way There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a bridge and watches ships come down the channel
In one direction, he sees a monument to fallen heroes
In the other, he sees the city skyline

There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a bridge surrounded by storage tanks
In the tanks is stored the fuel the runs the country
In the tanks is stored the fuel that pollutes the world

There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a bridge and is filled with sorrow
Inside his head, he sees a dark and troubled future
Inside his heart, he feels the grief the Earth is bound to come to

There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a bridge and thinks about jumping
In the depth of his soul, he knows it would be meaningless
In the bottom of his spirit, he knows this is not his path

There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a crossroad bridge of the land
And he can't find the place inside, where truth is honored
He can't find the place inside, that will tell him what to do

There's a man down Houston way
He sits on a bridge and watches the ships come up the channel
In one direction, he sees the city skyline
In the other, he sees a monument to fallen heroes
