The Lyrics

just another of my " poor guy" kind of parodies I hope you like itmetallica rules (but not as much as they did before they sold out)
I cannot afford anything
cannot even afford to dream
deep down I feel to steal
this terrible cop persues me
Now that taxes are through with me
I breaking up the bowl of hints
but there's not too much left of it
nothing is free but air now

hold my breath as I wish for bread
oh please god feed me!

back in the hood its much too cheap
In paper houses I must live
but can't look coward here where I live
cuz they'd beat s**t out of me
fed thanks to people that feed the birds
just like a "zoo-time" novelty
close to any pipe so I can drink
cut this life off from me

hold my breath as a wish for bread
oh please god feed me!

now that my money is gone I'm just broke
oh god help me hold my breath as I wish for bread
oh please god feed me

imprisoning me
all that I see
milk and oreos
I cannot eat
I cannot buy
I'm selling myself
my body is on offer


selling my eyes
selling my ears
selling my liver
selling my arms
selling my legs
selling my soul
I just want some of your change

again I hope you like it please do,vote and leave a comment

I forwarded this to a buddy of mine who's a die-hard Metallica fan. I think he'll enjoy it.
