Incident on 57th Street



 Johnny was sittin on the fire escape watchin the kids playin' down the street
 He called 'Hey little heroes, Summer's long but i guess it ain't very sweet around here anymore'
 Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat. Johnny sits up alone and watches her dream on, dream on
 And the sister prays for lost souls then breaks down in the chapel after everyone's gone
