What It's Like

Lyrics

We've all seen a man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
The hair on his face is dirty, dread-locked, and full of mange
He asks a man for what he could spare, with shame in his eyes
"Get a job you f**king slob," is all he replies

Ditto on that one, if I could turn back time no way I can't go through that again and with hindsight of just what it would take. I'm satisfied with survival.

One of my fav songs. U don't kno wat it's like unless u sang the blues , had to choose or really lose . Ive seen a rich man beg, ive seen a good man sin, ive seen a tough man cry , Ive seen a loser win, I've seen a sad man grin, I've seen an honest man lie

People deprived of events happening

Around them will one day know

WHAT ITS LIKE because for their

Supposed, purpose of protecting them

Were turned away from certain bad*

Situations, thinking they were being

Protected of said life situations, well,

Now, they will be the example for

others. LEARNING BY EXAMPLE .. ... .

There's no words to explain one

Overcoming trials & tribulations

Your too busy enjoying the reward

Of triumph over issues which caused

Many of stress - yeah, you have no

Time to put into words

WHAT ITS LIKE because one is too

busy enjoying the moment :) yeah,

Eventually , life goes on, the world ,

Heaven and hell will still be there :)

BOOM, I feel like a freaking

Philosopher - HoTDanGiT ❗️ with a

red hot exclamation point - DADGUM
