lyrics

From the heat waves up in Melbourne to the winters in Gisborne
Im just trying to make peace with the life that I've been living
but I've made some bad decisions and I'm not winning
and I cant see straight man I'm seeing double visions
I can tell you about the days when you feel so alone
I can tell you about the nights you meet a girl and take her home
the times you lose your phone the times you have to loan
five dollars off your mates just to get back home
or you cant afford to eat and youre still getting stoned
or you havent got a ticket and there's PSO's
and they know who you are and they know where you go
cause the same cunce caught you like 3 weeks ago
and sometimes it gets hard working 8 days a week in your factories
and I can't sleep it feels like I'm dying
Cause now the morning makes my head hurt
and I spilled beer on my clean shirt
I havent slept in my own bed for days and days
And the only girls that I know work at the Gisborne bottle-o
they know me by my first name
and fuck Centrelink I just want money to drink
I wanna get high and get laid and then throw up in your sink
but I think that the drink is pulling us in
and now I'm on the brink and I cant even swim
I'm the guy at the party that everyone knows
cause I'll break into your shed for a funnel and a hose
and for all those who goes to the punk rock shows
you all know how we're so incredibly broke
and now I'll sleep in late on this hard wooden floor
but it's like 10 past 8 and someone's mowing the lawns
so I walk down to the store for a bottle of walkers
and I pass my mates by the centrelink doors
and sometimes it gets hard working 8 days a week in your factories
and I can't sleep it feels like I'm dying
Cause now the morning makes my head hurt
and I spilled beer on my clean shirt
I havent slept in my own bed for days and days
And the only girls that I know work at the Gisborne bottle-o
they know me by my first name
I've got so many rhymes I just keep writing them down
I got the reggae rock steady kingston sound
with the beats up so loud man it's drowning you out
I got the noise complaints coming up from the neighbours house
I got friends in the drunk tank the rhymes down in 1 take
a 5 string guitar and all the cash in my mums bank account
and I doubt that she'll even find out
that she paid a months rent for Kim and Daves house
it's the cheap beer in Fitzroy the crime waves in Melton
it's the kids on the street it's the people who help them
it's the poor cunce in Footscray that just can't stay sober
it's the the jams up in Sunbury and the chills down in Hobart
and sometimes it gets hard working 8 days a week in your factories
and I can't sleep it feels like I'm dying
Cause now the morning makes my head hurt
and I spilled beer on my clean shirt
I havent slept in my own bed for days and days
And the only girls that I know work at the Gisborne bottle-o
they know me by my first name
