The Lyrics

This song really makes you think. I wrote it in a time when I was homeless, and the depression is present in the lyrics. My only request is if you see someone that needs help on the street, help him or her out. They are not all bums and drunks, nor are they lazy and stupid. They are human beings. Remember the golden rule for these people please, and enjoy the song!
Well, I'm homeless,
I sleep under the freeway,
Wondering if I'm gonna eat today,
I'll eat anything at all.

And I'm standing,
Watching fancy cars go by,
Look at my shopping cart and start to cry,
Cause it's not that much at all.

Ya see, I'm just a man who lived his life,
The best that I can through the pain of the knife,
I've served my country, and saluted the flag,
But after my discharge life has been a drag.

I'm homeless,
No one ever gives a spit,
Kids pass me by just to laugh and spit,
Upon my old and dirty clothes.

I can't blame them,
Their parents didn't teach them right,
They'll never have to sleep outside at night,
Or learn to pity someone's woes.

Ya see, I know that God is up above,
He answers my prayers with His endless love,
I would work if someone's nice enough to ask me to,
But there's nothing in this world to do.

I have always walked straight ahead, won't focus on the past,
I live each day of my life like it's the last,
I'm a glutton for punishment, all I've had is suffering,
Happiness costs money, and love ain't free,
All I can afford is misery!
I'm Homeless!

You know, it's a good day when I find some change,
Or I'll rummage through the dumpsters for something else strange,
I can make a living recycling cans,
But those silly cops have other plans!

Catch me if you can!

I'm homeless!
The government's a total Scrooge,
They don't want to feed the hungry dude,
They just want it for their own.

I'm homeless,
I pray the Lord will let me die,
I'll walk with Jesus side by side,
Then I'll never be alone.

Homeless,
Lord I'm down on my knees.
Homeless,
Jesus, take me please.
Homeless...
