We identify with the beggars
The borrowed
And the loved ones living in sorrow
The confusion of youth
I've seen the trash
Where the street meets the curb
Where the tips of bullets are hollowed
A town down to drown in heroin flirtations
Apathetic dealers / blow fiends
Or whatever pill that can be swallowed

Join me and get down
Or Join them and stay down

Teetering the poverty line
When you're trapped living seven to seven
Where broken bones can't exist
We have no time for this
An Injury equals months to years
Of financial recovery
A debt ceiling
to high to reach
While the outbursts of
"What the fuck did I do to end up here?"
And "When the fuck will this end?"
Stop giving you comfort
And start alienating your friends

Join them and get down
Or Join me and stay down
