Liner Notes: 

We have to get out there and live. it's out in the streets where we live and learn, not hidden behind walls

Lyrics: 

Streets

Streets flow outward and inward
Life won't be complete
Without all the journeys
We live out on the street

Streets divide and collide
Intersections of the mind
Left turns and right turns
U turns on life's grind

Streets leading nowhere
As we follow our dreams
Some paved with illusions
Shattered at the seams

Streets leading somewhere
Directions lost in life's haze
Life turning circles
Going up in a blaze

Streets flow outward and inward
Life won't be complete
Without the journeys
We live out on the streets

T junction before me
Not moving on
Its left turn or right turn
New journey begun

U turns are pointless
They backtrack on what's been
So it's left turn or right turn
To journeys unseen

Life is not living
If behind walls we hide
So it's into the streets
Hold on for the ride
Not all journeys
Turn out as desired
But take the risk of living
Or die lonely and tired

Streets flow outward and inward
Life won't be complete
Without all the journeys
We live out on the street
