Daniel Johnston - Cold Hard World lyrics

It's a cold hard world It's a cold hard world It's a cold hard world Oh no I heard Red Donley say It was on the news today It's a cold hard world It's a cold hard world It's hiking across the country Looking for a bite to eat You'd be surprised at the animals And the people you'd meet Rolling down that highway With eyes fixed straight ahead They have a caravan of cars To bury the dead And coke cans and pop bottles Lined the streets like flowers instead And this guy gave me a ride I said this industrial waste sure stinks He said he likes that smell 'cause that's the smell of money I said "well, mister money stinks, too." I met a fireman He said you never forget burning flesh And the librarian said Do you have a card here? I said I been coming here for weeks Don't you recognize me by now I checked out a million books Just to get you to notice me Somebody's house burned down Somebody's hubcap fell off Somebody's soul got lost Somebody's heart got broke I heard Red Donley say It was on the news today It's a cold hard world It's a cold hard world
