I've got nothing to say But you can pay me anyway Food for my family I've still got bills to pay And they won't go away I've lost control of my mind It keeps me in time Is this my time on the breadline? How did I get here? At the corner of this freeway On the edge of this city No time to wonder If I don't get paid for nothing I'll die for lack of something And what did I hear? You're expecting some philosophy For a quarter's worth of beer You'll feel better And that's why I'm here I walk into the morning With no fear for the future And you won't catch me inside 'cause I'm legitimate And now I give a damn I'm gonna sit on your street And act real meek You just act like you know me How did I get here? On the corner of 3rd Street In the shelter of this bookstore I want you all here So you know I'm not pretending I've a halfway act for real You'll feel better You'll feel better If it's bitter then it's easy It's harder to be joyful You'll feel better 'cause that's why I'm here You'll feel better Because it's easy You'll feel better Because it's easy
