f^^k what i write its not your fight    RIGHT

you're not the one who has to survive tonight

she begs for a penny you sold her a dream

telling her life is all that it seems
you wear similar faces in many different places

acting like you are sombody else

you raise you're children not to be like me

through their eyes i'm all they can see

dirty deeds on her knees as he begs and pleads

oral sex if you please but you will still catch a disease

you go out to eat and blow fifty bucks

can you imagine how many times she has to f^^K

or suck in the back of a garbage truck  YUCK

her pride sells her short and so she cheats herself

tying the noose from the self

poverty lurks in every home some just hide it well

the rich get richer the poor get none

shoot i'm just trying to get some

hope and life are in our hearts resting amongst our souls

if this evil today continues to grow i don't know what we'll all do

it's like voodoo cast upon me and you creating a spell we can't undo

those were the days not so long ago that concentration

camps were the only place to go

they burned down their homes and kidnapped their men 

raping the women and children AGAIN and AGAIN

today many are homeless sleeping under a bridge

we can save one more life if we learn how to give

selfish is the way of their heart born from the start

as we laugh at the woman pushing a cart

think hard think deep think in your sleep

ask yourself are you unique
