Desperate Men

Somebody save them

These desperate men

Trapped in the vicious cycle

Of addiction, crime and jail

They live to use and use to live

Until they can’t afford it

Turn to crime to get their fix

Serve they’re time when they get nicked

And do it all again and again

Until the inside wears them down

And spits them out at middle age

To make their way in a world

They’ve hardly known

And what could be worse

For those who like to live fast

Girls, money, drugs and cars

To be locked in a box

Away from it all

With nothing but time

And nothing to fill it

Not living just coping

Waiting and hoping

A skerrick of ice

Comes their way

Somebody save them

These desperate men

Who can’t help themselves

To break the cycle

Of losing everything

To the walls they grow to love
