There's not much we do in this life Spend our time bargaining For money For alcohol For drugs For love Where does this all get us? Sitting on corners Begging the people Crawling around someone else's sheets Trying to find someway to please The greed The habit The beast The emptiness What does this all do to us? Become uncaring Forget how to treat people Wear our heart on our sleeves Hoping that it'll be worth it In time In life In our name In the end How is this our purpose? Wasting our days Working our hardest Coming out empty handed Having our heart stomped in dirt For believing we could have Our choice Our voice Our happiness Our freedom Only to be left in this life with nothing Spend our time slaving To the new system.
