Joey

This song is by Imaginary Friend and appears on the album Hurtin' For Certain (1990).

Monday morning, nine o'clock
Joey doesn't seem to talk
He only walks alone
Against the residential streets

Strangers only pass him by
They never look him in the eye
He's really not the kind of boy
They'd like to meet

His voice isn't all that strong
His hair must be way too long
He's hidden from the
Mainstream of society

He's looking some people, though
No one cares where he goes
Well, Joey is the shadow
That everyone ignores

They're out there, but you'll never know
Their feelings never show
And no one cares where they go
Because Joey is a social U.F.O.

Days will come and days will go
And Joey's feelings will often show
But that's OK, he's found a way
To deal with it all

No more fighting, no more school
No more teachers' golden rule
It's better to be gone
Than do as others do to you

It was a long walk home that day
The weather wasn't nice, they say
Kids were playing in the streets
And laughing's all you hear

Listen now and once again
A shot is fired deep within
He's dead and silent, never wake
To all you hear, it's a mistake

They're out there, but you'll never know
Their feelings never show
And no one cares where they go
Because Joey is a social U.F.O.

Joey
Hey, Joey

Yeah, you, man

Joes was indeed alive
Yet no one saw in his eyes
They're filled with love, once a day
And ? out to no avail

Take some time and be a man
Take your brother by the hand
Look in his face
There is beauty, there is friendship

Joey wasn't all alone
As many without a home
Don't waste your time
And let a friendship pass you by

One last thing I ask of you
Please, follow the golden rule
Do unto others
As you would have them do to you

They're out there, but you'll never know
Their feelings never show
And no one cares where they go
Because Joey is a social U.F.O.
