about

The homeless that live under our feet

lyrics

Never went to school, straight to the street,
no hope for a job, shoes worn, bare feet.
No-one to love. Nothing to eat.
The mind of a child. Old clothes, deadbeat.
Never been taught, never been raised,
never given a chance to enter our race.
For every scrap fought, made use of our waste,
carving out his own life, people are a disgrace.

Can't believe we let this happen in a country so fucking proud.
We need to pull our heads from out of the clouds.

Forgotten tales of the streets.
Wasted lives under our feet.
A civilisation, built on defeat.
The top of the food chain, but still some have nothing to eat.

Traded some cash he earned on the street
for a knife, too late to get cold feet.
Climbed up high to get inside,
the home of a family sleeping inside.
Little did he know, the wife was late,
she turned and they stood face to face.
A little too close. His hands now stained.
The blood flows free, it's our mistake.

Can't believe we let this happen in a country so fucking proud.
We need to pull our heads from out of the clouds.
You know we could have been there, in time to stop this short.
When he was a young man and still had a choice.

Forgotten tales of the streets.
Wasted lives under our feet.
A civilisation, built on defeat.
The top of the food chain, but still some have nothing to eat.
