Landlords and Grocery Stores

I’m a burden on society
How could that possibly be?
All the money goes
To Landlords and Grocery stores

Upstream where they make the rules
On the hilltop, they talk like fools
With their minds too
Dull for dreaming

I got knocked down. I don’t know why
Happened when I stepped outside
The door closed
And locked behind me

Read about the good old days
Children worked in factories
They work there now
Wherever the laws allow

Wherever you are, you are

That was one time
One of the times I needed you

Everyday, feel like February
A heavy cough and what I’m wearing
Is all I got
To get me through to summertime

I’m a burden on society
That’s what they want me to believe
But the money goes
It goes to landlords and grocery stores

I don’t know why….I got locked outside
Back in the good old days…worked in factories

Hey where’d the money go
It went to landlords and grocery stores
That’s where it went
That’s where the money goes

Box of crackers and you pay the rent
Ask me where my money got spent
It went to landlords
Landlords and grocery stores

Whoever you are, you are

That was one time
One of the times I needed you
