    On doorsteps and in alleyways
    I see these fools passed out
    At any time of the day
    Crashed out in a bed of piss
    Empty bottle cradled in their arms.

    So tell me
    Who's job is it to tend these few people?
    Back to self-sufficiency and respect
    I turn my head it puts chills in my heart
    If I give you some change to clear my mind
    Would I have played my part?
    There's a man who has a dream
    But never seems to make it
    'Cause everytime he gets some, someone tries to take it.

    A second chance at life, no one will give him
    In an alley wat is where he's livin'
    You see him there you walk by laughing and smirking
    Thinking to yourself it's only his fault, he ain't working.

    That might be true but it's only half the story so
    Kick back while we tell you his story.

    He came back from the war a veteran
    The only thing he learned to do was kill and shoot a gun.
    That comes in handy when you're fighting a war
    But when you came back to society you need much more.
    So all he had was terror in his mind
    No job skills so a job he couldn't find.
    The only thing he had was memories
    Of his friends being killed and crying and dying babies.

    So he grabbled bottle for an escape
    From all the mental torment that the war had made.
    Now you're calling him a bum 'cause he can't get none
    While you're sitting at home not willing to get some.

    Sharing and caring is what he needs now
    Some support for his marals, some help for his ego.
    So he can go to the top where every man can
    And all he really needs is a helping hand.

    So tell me
    Who's job is it to tend these few people?
    Back to self-sufficiency and respect
    I turn my head it puts chills in my heart
    If I give you some change to clear my mind
    Would I have played my part?

    Cold dark and lonely
    Broken and abused
    Homeless hungry and hated
    Forgotten
    Only remembered on the streets
    And they're down, down and out.
