lyrics

There's some children on the corner
throwing garbage in the street
No one offers them attention
It is them alone who grieves

Well everything goes
at least that's what I'm told
but you can never look around
without some smilin' faces

There's a mother with her baby
scowlin' at everyone she sees
No she's not concerned with reason
She's wonderin' when they're gonna eat

Well everything goes
at least that's what I'm told
but you can never look around
without some smilin' faces

Well people come and people go
That's all you need to know
But if you'd like to come with me
Be one, be one

Outside some kids are taking communion
reapin' everything they sew
While their hearts are set on heaven
you know their minds are set below

Well everything goes
at least that's what I'm told
but you can never look around
without some smilin' faces

Well people come and people go
That's all you need to know
But if you'd like to come with me
Be one, be one

Well everything goes at least that's what I'm told
well everything goes at least that's what I'm told
Well everything goes at least that's what I'm told
Well everything goes at least that's what I'm told
Well everything goes at least that's what I'm told

That's what I'm told
