about

A song about how being in debt can spiral out of control and ruin the best of people

lyrics

DOWN AND OUT

I'M THE MAN THAT YOU WALK PAST AND TRY NOT TO SEE
LOW SELF ESTEEM AND NO DIGNITY
LOSING MYSELF IN THE BOTTOM OF A CAN
OF CHEAP BOOZE, I USED TO BE A MAN
BUT NOW I FEEL LOWER THAN AN ANIMAL
MY CONTACT WITH HUMANITY IS MINIMAL
GOT A NAME BUT IT RARELY GETS USED
LOST COUNT OF THE TIME I'VE BEEN VERBALLY ABUSED

BY THUGS WHO VICTIMIZE THE WEAK
GOT A VOICE BUT I RARELY SPEAK
LIVE IN A FLAT THAT LOOKS LIKE A TIP
THE RENTS OVERDUE BUT I COULDN'T GIVE A SHIT

SCRAPE TOGETHER SOME CHANGE SO I CAN BUY
ANOTHER BOTTLE OF BOOZE TO NUMB MY MIND
KNOW MY LIFE'S SHIT BUT WHY SHOULD I CARE
STARRING AT THE WORLD THROUGH AN ALCOHOLIC BLUR


'DOWN N OUT STINKING OF PISS
LYING IN THE GUTTER AND I'M COVERED IN SICK
HOW BAD WAS MY LIFE TO END UP LIKE THIS
GIVE ME THE RAZOR LET ME SLIT MY WRISTS
MY NAME'S AT THE TOP OF MY OWN SHIT LIST
IF I DIE TODAY I WONT BE MISSED
DOWN AND OUT STINKING OF PISS'

HIT THE BOTTLE SO MUCH TO TRY AND FORGET
THE LIFE I ONCE HAD, ALL THE REGRETS
OF PAST MISTAKES THAT I MADE
WHEN I'M SOBER I REMINISCE ABOUT THE BETTER DAYS
USED TO HAVE MONEY, USED TO HAVE A WIFE
RAN MY OWN FIRM USED TO HAVE A LIFE
THEN THE RECESSION DROPPED ME IN THE SHIT
MY FIRM WENT INTO RECEIVERSHIP

SOLD MY HOME TO CLEAR MY DEBTS
THE STRESS GOT TOO MUCH SO MY WIFE LEFT
LOST IT ALL I FEEL SUCH A FOOL
JUST A VICTIM OF TORY RULE

LOST THE STRENGTH TO GET BACK ON MY FEET
DRINK WASHES AWAY THE BITTER TASTE OF DEFEAT
WHEN YOUR DISGUSTED BY THE SIGHT OF ME
JUST REMEMBER THE MAN THAT I ONCE USED TO BE

'DOWN N OUT STINKING OF PISS
LYING IN THE GUTTER AND I'M COVERED IN SICK
HOW BAD WAS MY LIFE TO END UP LIKE THIS
GIVE ME THE RAZOR LET ME SLIT MY WRISTS
MY NAME'S AT THE TOP OF MY OWN SHIT LIST
IF I DIE TODAY I WONT BE MISSED
DOWN AND OUT STINKING OF PISS'
