    The street's alive as secret debts are paid,
    Contacts made, they vanished unseen.
    Kids flash guitars just like switch-blades
    Hustling for the record machine.
    The hungry and the hunted explode into rock'n'roll bands
    That face off against each other out in the street, down in Jungleland.

    The street's on fire in a real death waltz
    Between what's flesh and what's fantasy
    Man, the poets down here don't write nothin' at all,
    They just stand back and let it all be

    We're a long, long way from home, Bobbie;
    Home's a long, long way from us.

    Devils and dust.
