lyrics

I ain't got much time
To sit around and wait
Been sent to help the hungry
Try to lift some sorta weight
But they can't seem to get
Their trials off their minds
Accusin' me of comin' here
To finish off their rinds

But how can I sing for the poor
If I ain't poor myself?
Well, I'll take my hat, my coat
And pass them on to someone else
I'll make my way along
The borders of this land
And I'll just keep on walkin'
'til my legs refuse to stand

So won't you come my way
And spend another day
In the grips of nothingness
While we figure out this mess

So if you needs a little time
To think it over too
Well, we can take a walk
And talk it over while we do
My memory's not great
But I've shared with you what I know
And I remember fallin' ill
As the winter brought the snow

There were people all around
With mud all through their hair
And I just couldn't take my eyes
Off any one of them
They didn't have a lot
Not more than what they need
And now I understand that any man
Is lucky if he's free

So won't you come my way
And spend another day
In the grips of nothingness
While we figure out this mess
Or let it all fall down
