Versuri Defeater - Beggin In The Slums
Album: Defeater - Lost Ground
I ain't been sleeping well these days I lie awake listening to the trains Wishing for one of them To come take me away Lost my way every place I've been Tired of thinking of all the hurt I've seen Wishing for death To finally take me. My days are all the same On the corners I beg and plead I blow my lungs out For some strangers change The nights are long and cold Under bridges where you're all alone Embers of the fire build Like drifts of snow I've been thrown out I've been let down Never felt a promise Of this town That it was supposed to be When I left home I am washed up On my last breath Just an old man With nothing left. It ain't the way it was supposed to be When I came home. My ups and my downs Have burnt me out These people watching me The swan song that I sing And in the crowd I feel the eyes That have been broken down Just like mine. I hope these words dig deep I hope he's listening He sees what I've become Just a broken man begging in slums I found my hope Finally found my hope In the poor lost souls eyes That were burning just like mine.
