Kobo Town

Half of the Houses

LYRIC

[Chorus]
Half of the houses on [?] street are empty
We all gone away to the land of plenty
Follow the money trail on the aeroplane
Follow the money trail on the bus and train
Follow the money trail through the snow and the rain
Follow the money trail to the [?] and the [?] and [?]

[Verse 1]
Rosie runs a roti shack up in Piccadilly
[?] driving taxi in New York City
Joe runs a bar down in Chicago
And I'm here in Toronto
(Come again?)
Right there in Toronto

[Chorus]
Half of the houses on [?] street are empty
We all gone away to the land of plenty
Follow the money trail on the aeroplane
Follow the money trail on the bus and train
Follow the money trail through the snow and the rain
Follow the money trail to the [?] and the [?] and [?]

[Verse 2]
Imran is a factory hand up in Brixton
Shelden runs a sweet stand down in Washington
Sally is down in San Francisco
And I'm here in Toronto

[Bridge]
And when we dream
Time and space collapse
Memory brings us back to those long lost hopes and forgotten joys we knew as young girls and boys

And when we dream the brightest [?]
Flood the world and fill the [?]
And when we dream it was a [?]
[?] before light of day melt away
[?] before light of day melt away

In the city every mile holds a tale of exile
A memory standing still while the years run on by
Families holding on to those long lost days
Holding [?] all nice memory fades
All nice memory fades
All nice memory fades

[Chorus]
Half of the houses on [?] street are empty
We all gone away to the land of plenty
Follow the money trail on the aeroplane
Follow the money trail on the bus and train
Follow the money trail through the snow and the rain
Follow the money trail to the [?] and the [?] and [?]

[Outro]
