It's not easy being homeless, have nothing to put into your yawning feeding entrance
Sometimes you have to do what you have to do, but how do you do it!
Just keep up with the same 'shit' in the mean time and later you'll clean it all neat.

Sideways, back and forth, you are hit with all sort of staff that aren't spiced with honey but lemon
you and we wait for the sunshine so we stay indoors, for how long are we going to hide under our blankets while we can wake up, walk straight, pick a sword and bring a muscular, brooding presence to the can of worms!

I might sound crazy coz I've been going back and forth on life
but don't you think that we're dreading on what we can't fight and that's why we feel the storm tearing and cutting like knife!
you walk and if there is a bump on your way, you fuzz and break on the ground
It's our time to stand and walk (frown)

Not all will sign in present in your times of struggle and success; Never mind!!
make today your better day by picking from it, beat it and joining it; well that makes sense!
life can be so cruel, in just a second it can run you down. there's no much we can do than to work with what we have to reach our crown and gown
It's up to you how you take it, cherish you don't break it, you'll find a way
It's either you stand tall and firm or with it you'll sway
but if you know you can beat it, then why don't you join it! in this you'll be working with faith because faith is when a fisherman believes a carpenter to show/ teach him how to fish.
