Lyrics
Poor as your Neighbor's Rat

i have no job and I have no money, IRS wants to talk to me
feels like the bottom has been reached, but there's always another level below
please don't judge me honey, because I am wearing these same old clothes
i am trying, or rather I tried, but I've given up, there's no more hope

please, oh god, you're such a fake
i am good, not trying to put blame
please, please show me your face
i'll slap it hard and I'll slap it with my hand

i have no funds and I have no guns, i am poor as your neighbor's rat
eating whenever i find food, reading every time I find a story about truth
please don't blame this mess on me, I did not create it, trust me
i work hard to make a different world, where none has to fight with a sword

please, oh god, you're such a fake
i am good, not trying to put blame
please, please show me your face
i'll slap it hard and I'll slap it with my hand
