Everlast - What It's Like



Tekst piosenki:

We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
  The hair on his face is dirty, dreadlocked and full of mange
  He ask the man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes
  Get a job you fuckin' slob's all he replied
  
  [CHORUS]
  God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
  'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues
  Then you really might know what it's like [X4]
  
  Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love
  He said don't worry about a thing baby doll I'm the man you've been dreamin' of
  But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call
  And she sweared god damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls
  And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors
  They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a whore
  
  [CHORUS]
  God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
  'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose
  Then you really might know what it's like [X4]
  I've seen a rich man beg
  I've seen a good man sin
  I've seen a tough man cry
  I've seen a loser win
  And a sad man grin
  I heard an honest man lie
  I've seen the good side of bad
  And the down side of up
  And everything between
  I licked the silver spoon
  Drank from the golden cup
  Smoked the finest green
  I stroked daddies dimes at least a couple of times
  Before I broke their heart
  You know where it ends
  Yo, it usually depends on where you start
  
  I knew this kid named Max
  He used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs
  He liked to hang out late at night
  Liked to get shit faced
  And keep pace with thugs
  Until late one night there was a big gun fight
  Max lost his head
  He pulled out his chrome .45
  Talked some shit
  And wound up dead
  Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of his pain
  You know it crumbles that way
  At least that's what they say when you play the game
  
  [CHORUS]
  God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
  'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose
  Then you really might know what it's like [X4]
  To have to lose...
