the edge of america
walk the edge of america 
a concrete beach to scrape my hand 
inside the subway stinking fear and shame 
becomes the violent breath 

vigilantes out on dawn patrol 
but now there's nothing left to hide 
i'm just a number on the metal fence 
which marks the great divide 

hey boy 
give your dreams a rest 
if you're tired of searching 
this is where it ends 
there's nothing left to lose 
nothing to protest 
learn to love your anger now 
anger here is all you possess 
welcome to the age 

below the towers of the citadel 
seems someone overlooked the cost 
forgotten soldier of paradise 
now paradise is lost 

recognition never realized 
salvation lost among the crowd 
so tell me beside this sterile sea 
where is your nation now? 

and we say 
hey boy 
give your dreams a rest 
if you're tired of searching 
this is where it ends 
there's nothing left to lose 
nothing to protest 
learn to love your anger now 
anger here is all you possess 
welcome to the edge
