The Lyrics

This is for Kristina
I just can't be what you want me to be,
Feeling so useless,
And living on wellfare,
The cops just keep coming after me,
Put under the pressure,
Of paying all my debts...

[Lying in the gutter,
Stealing food from rats]

Every fall that I take,
Will soon make my poor ankles break,
Help me...

become a BUM
I can't afford FOOD
Become so poor
living on the street,
I can't take a piss,
without catching a disease,
I think I just caught one,
I always cough and sneeze

Can't you see that I'm still homeless,
Living in cardboard,
and wearing dirty clothes,
'Cos everything in all of the stores,
Is something I can't afford,
'Cos I'm on wellfare...

[Sleeping on park benches,
My room mate is a rat]

Every trash can I check,
Makes me a big stupid wreck,

[Eating off the floor,
being kicked by a whore]

And every bone that I break,
Is more than I can take

But I know
I can still get a job too
And I know
JK Rowling was just like me,
But it still wasn't this bad...

I'VE become a BUM

[Someone please get this whore off of me]
