Two minute noodles
Discounted meat
Ya gotta be a mug
To pay top price to eat
Clothes from the Salvos
Shoes from St. Vinnies
Hanging for hard waste
Coz there's rich cunts in my street
Gave up the tailors
Cheaper to roll
Low-income bracket
Working for the dole
Smashing a goonsack
On Wednesday night
Sleep all day Thursday

Thought about knocking over a servo
But I didn't have the guts to do it
Borrowed money from the missus instead
Haven't got the guts to tell her I blew it
Haven't got the means to be an addict
But here we are, see?
The speed, the smack, the shard
The void, the pills I pop to fill it
It's all or nothing

Getting old and getting ugly
Getting used to being in arrears
After bills, food, rent, weed, ciggies, beer
I don't have shit
Hand to mouth and week to week
My life's been one big losing streak
Thank fuck for Cashies
Hocked in the flatscreen
Then hit the pokies and the TAB

Thought about maybe getting a job
But there ain't no way
Criminal record and shit for brains
No qualifications
It's a sad sorry, amalgamation
Of self-induced strife
No clear goals and a welfare ticket
Hanging on for dear life
