about

About:

Some people like to pretend homelessness doesn’t exist because they think it will never happen to them. They ignore the begging for money or cigarettes and walk straight by without a word when all that person wants is to be treated like a person. Don’t rob them of their dignity when its all they’ve got left.

lyrics

Lyrics:

I once knew a poor old man his life was sick with sin
He’d drink and shoot his days away just like back in Berlin
He used to be a general won medals for our cause
But now he sits in his own piss and breaks our moral laws

We’ll bitch and complain tell him to get a job
But we don’t know his pain and so what if he’s a slob
Tried at life and failed, what if you had done the same?
If we all help out he might prevail; he’s just a person with a name

Loved and lost but never gained and he felt this was the end
The only thing that’ll save him now is talking with his friends
But he lost all them a long time ago now he’s just regret
Made one last plea to "god" above for life to just reset

We’ll bitch and complain tell him to get a job
But we don’t know his pain and so what if he’s a slob
Tried at life and failed, what if you had done the same?
If we all help out he might prevail; he’s just a person with a name

Well “god” would not reset his life perhaps it was just chance
Someone just a passerby caught him at a glance
Took it on themselves to comfort him and calm him down
Took him for a simple meal and a night out on the town

We’ll bitch and complain tell him to get a job
But we don’t know his pain and so what if he’s a slob
Tried at life and failed, what if you had done the same?
If we all help out he might prevail; he’s just a person with a name

Wasn’t much but thats all it takes
They just talked about past mistakes
Changed his life and he’ll never forget
The night that he had and the people he met
Now he walks a brighter line but change still needs to come
By change I don’t mean pity coins don’t be so fucking dumb
We need to show these people we really truly care
So go ahead and talk to someone if you really dare
