This song is about a man who spends every day on a street corner, apparently homeless or mentally disturbed, staring vacantly and shouting at random people. The lyrics speculate that maybe this guy has the right idea - "Do you love it enough to leave it, just like the lonely man there on the corner?" (thanks, Andy - Arlington, VA)
