lyrics

Propped up by a hollow
Vacant stare
At the peeling plaster wall but there's
Nothing there.

Hunger is a buzzard
First of many to come
Picking at you day and night
Til all is dark and dumb

I shake my fist
Right at the skies
And I ask God
Why oh why

Why do you let
Such evil thrive?
Why don't you wipe
The tears from our eyes?

But I put my hands down
Down by my side
Too afraid you see
He'll ask the same of me

How in heaven's name
Did it come down to this?
Sleeping on the ground
Goodnight concrete kiss

Old Joe lived in cardboard
Didn't even own a wallet
Shot in the head last night
For the lint in his pocket

I shake my fist
Right at the skies
And I ask God
Why oh why

Why do you let
Such evil thrive?
Why don't you wipe
The tears from our eyes?

But I put my hands down
Down by my side
Too afraid you see
He'll ask the same of me
