About the song
Just moved to L.A. and was living in a large apartment complex with all kinds of people very close by, all strangers to me, all anonymous to me. When I drove back and forth to work in Pomona I saw homeless people and just wandered what their lives were about. How did they get there, all these faceless people. Thought the song would be good for a movie track about this subject.
Lyrics
(1st Verse):

There are so many people in this world today.
So many people I will never meet.
Some of them live so very far away.
Some just next door or only down the street.

(Chorus):

Some of them hungry, homeless, hopeless, people without faces.
Some of them hungry for love - hopelessly lonely, faceless, people without faces.

(1st bridge) Do they have empty spaces - where their
hearts ought to be or are they just like, just like you and me.

(2nd verse) There are so many people in this world today,
so many people well they seem so strange to me.
Living in far away places, but sometimes
they're standing right here next to me.

(Chorus):

Some of them hungry, homeless, hopeless,
people without faces.
Some of them hungry for love, hopelessly lonely,
faceless, people without faces.

(2nd bridge and finale):

People without faces. People without faces.

People without, people without, people without faces.
People without, people without, people without faces.

They've got funny sounding names, people without faces.
Do they look and feel the same - - people without faces.
People without - people without - people without faces.
People without - people without - people without faces . . fade.
