So many times I thought I wasn’t going to make it
Sometimes I would wake up gasping for breath
Wishing someone would come through and save me
But I had to save myself
I had to push my way through the pain
My heart crying where are you
Why didn’t my Superman come and save me?
Where was the hope in the dark of the night
As I’m sprawled out on the floor
Crying out in pain
So hungry, so poor
Couldn’t even afford the rent
The pounding on the door
The police have come to take away my life
Arrest me because I have no one I can turn to
No one is there to bail me out
Can’t pay my bills
All my paycheck is spent, gone in a blink of an eye
Sorry Miss, nothing we can do, we’re just paid to do our jobs
This world is pointing fingers at each other
But there’s no one up there behind that mahogany stand representing me
No one up there living from paycheck to paycheck
No one up there in that nice White House pleading for my case
Instead they take away all the help and I’m making too much when I’m not making enough to survive
Working so hard to survive but what’s this life about
Where’s the love?
Where’s the manners?
Where’s the niceties?
Too many injustices
Too many screams of offending hearts
Can’t speak your mind
Shhhh they’re coming to take you away
Too many trolls hiding behind a screen trying to be famous for 5 minutes
Where’s the justice, oh yeah its a Benjamin being slipped pass the eyes of the press
Where are the people that once gave a shit
Only care when it benefits them
Until there’s an outcry of rage
Maybe they’ll finally stand up for the survivors of 911 after years of denying those first responders but oh yeah its a New York problem…..
They didn’t say that when they sacrificed their lives
What about the rest of the problems
When are the blind going to start to see?
After a few die maybe they’ll stand up for the poor, the sick that need medical care
What about the veterans that you send to a war
Where are the White Haired politicians while there’s a solider suffering from PTSD?
Turned away from the VA again because there’s not enough funding
How about those politicians that get a lifetime of medical for free, put down the damn golf balls – Your country is suffering
You have two eyes, a nose, hell you look human
So where’s your sacrificing for your country?
Did you forget while sitting in your posh chairs and luxury cars that could stock my fridge for a year on the salaries you make
But what’s it going to take for this world to start caring anymore?
Trade places with the poor for a day
See how well you live now
But you’ll never come down to my level
That would mean you’d have to understand
