Bread & Booze




Bread & Booze

You need a lot of strength and courage
To fight the evils in this world
You need a lot of brawn and muscle
In your mind and soul
You need to walk without poisoning
The very hands that you hold

You need to surround yourself
With what really matters to you
Hold dear with what you know
Who are you going to live and die for?
Who will return the favor?

I know you've been working three jobs
Trying to put your kids in school
There has to be more funding
More funding for woman like you

There's nothing but them liars
There's nothing but them cheaters and the screw
They want to keep you from uprising
They think they have all the power not you

I see you brown bagging in the corner
I know you ain’t worked in ten years
I wish I had a home for you to lay in
A pillow for all your tears

When your hungry, sick of living
You need that bread and booze
