$11.00 An Hour Is Not Enough To Drive

-

You can grab my mind and twist it

Out of shape and wreck my thoughts

But when I get out of place

I'll be all I need to be

My only problem

No car to drive

But that's the poverty's life

And when I'm smiling from

The Heaven of drugs

I'll be without the gas

It takes to get there

Still

I'll have my own place to live

Work to get much more money

Post time any chance I get

Jam sessions if I live long enough for them

But how much sleep?

A man can fall flat on his beliefs

So I'll do all I can

And convince myself I won't need

An automovile for me

I've got a B.A.R.T. system

What could possibly go wrong with it?
