lyrics

Woke up on the floor, ain't got a bed in my apartment. I went and locked the door, guess I got too drunk and forgot last night. I put my dirty clothes back on and pick up my guitar, cos I've got nowhere left to go since someone stole my car. And if I pick up the phone, all my calls will go unanswered. My family and friends have cut me out like I am cancer. I guess it's my own fault, I had my windows shut with duct tape, just wish I hadn't left my winter jacket in the back seat. Cos now it's getting pawned along with all of my CDs, I must have checked at Cheapo Records twenty times in the last week. I hope someone else enjoys them and they're not thrown in the trash, I hope my jacket keeps you warm or at least pockets you some cash, cos the weather's getting colder and the times are getting tougher and the rent is due on Monday and there's nothing in the cupboard, and I'm walking around with holes in the bottoms of my shoes. I'll wreck this stolen cop car, I've got nothing else to lose, except these empty bottles and the blankets on the floor. I know we're sick of getting murdered cos we happen to be poor, but first, I'm gonna kill the guy who stole my car.
