Tired, Lonely & Poor

How’d I get myself in this here predicament
Where my cash flow’s all dried up
Can’t pay my rent feel like an idiot
Hey Mr. you got a little extra drop of wine for my cup

Well my landlord is pounding on my door
My girlfriend won’t call me anymore
I wouldn’t blame ‘em
if I had enough strength to fight the war
Because I’m tired and I’m lonely and I’m poor

I miss the hard drugs, the stiff drinks, the endless love,
The company jet & the country club
But now it’s just me, my bad memory,
this empty can of chicken of the sea
A hollow heart and a broken old neon sign that says vacancy
There’s nothing glamorous, it’s a struggle to endure
This vagrant life just don’t it anymore
& I’m wondering what on Earth I’m fighting for
Because I’m tired & I’m lonely and I’m poor


from White Man's Curse, released January 19, 2008
