Stone broke & lonely


Stone broke & lonely, we only have each other
For peace & serenity we will view the clear sky,
parents long gone, we have our Earth Mother
so sad, our bodies too tired to cry, too tired to cry

Stone broke & lonely, the world needs our charity
sold our dreams to the man in the black suit
the debt collector is calling for his fee,
trees so stunted, bear the bitterest fruit

Stone broke & lonely, the world is in need
the first world is counting the mouths they must feed
the banks are being helped by those who they f***ed,
we'll see you in hell, if you make the first cut..
