The only way left is up.
What is left once you take everything away?
When you strip a man each and every day
I have nothing to my name
I have reached the maximum shame
And yet still they seek to drag me down
They think that I am some kind of worthless clown
There to be spat upon or worse
They won’t care when I’m taken by the hearse
All I ask for is dignity of self
Not to be labeled like a specimen on a shelf
I don’t need your coin or pity
I have grown used to this place so gritty
All I want is to be left alone
I promise I won’t scream or groan
At the bottom I have found my place
So please don’t make me hide my face
I will trouble you not if you don’t either
I don’t need your time or love neither
Simply let me exist as a dreg of life
And let me struggle alone through this miserable strife
Thank you for listening.
