FREE CEE rest in pieces


                         REST IN PIECES

I’ll tell you about the frustration within desperation
It’s requiring dope and there ain’t none
I’ll tell you about the desperation in frustration
It ain’t good and it certainly ain’t fun

It’s waiting endlessly on the corner for the man
While wearing your lucky pants and shirt
It’s waiting on the corner with a plan
And if the plan goes awry it’ll hurt

There’s panic in those pants and shame in that shirt
And still the man ain’t there
A junkie on the street has to stay alert
There are guns, gangs and guys in blue to fear

I’ll tell you about the frustration in desperation
It’s written on every junkie’s face
I’ll tell you about the desperation in frustration
It’s etched in stone on every junkie’s final resting place

    I think I've seen him, frustrated and desparate. Such a vivid portrayal.
