The Tear Drop Man

Spare a pittance for the Tear Drop Man
Who's hat is out so he 
Can tie his arm and shoot a bit
And dream the sweetest dreams

A sandwich curbs his appetite 
But a dollar would do more 
All those traumatic memories 
Would fade if he could score

Spare a pittance for the Tear Drop Man
Who's father rests in peace
The Tear Drop Man wouldn't idly watch
His mother get the beats 

A needle and a puddle
And a drop too much in him
A memory of his grandmas hand
That used to raise his chin

Spare a pittance for the Tear Drop Man
A flower where he lies 
To cover up his terror 
And the single tear he cried
