Asphalt Shingles deals with the illusions of class in a society that promotes it.

Asphalt shingles in a brick-man's row
No one will notice; no one will know
Long hide the secrets
Long live the pain

Yearning for sameness
In yawns of disdain

Quiet abodes on pine-drenched lawns
Shelt'ring the shadows
Bordering the dawns
Of new days 'wakenings
In life's never changings

Asphalt shingles lay bare the soul
Look like the bricks of the brick-man's row

No more hiding
No more pain
No more sorrow
In life's refrain

Swing the door open--let the fresh air in
Breathe in the sunlight for a new begin

Asphalt shingles all in a row
Hiding the sadness of those who don't know
Life stirs around them
Peace could surround them

If only they let go
Of asphalt shingles in a brick-man's row
