  • When I get home it's late at night,
    I'm black and bloody from my life,
    I haven't time to clean my hands,
    Cuts will only sting me through my dreams.

    It's well past midnight as I lie
    In a semi-conscious state.
    I dream of people fighting me
    Without any reason I can see.

    In the morning I awake,
    My arms my legs my body aches,
    The sky outside is wet and grey
    So begins another weary day.
    So begins another weary day.

    After eating I go out,
    People passing by me shout.
    I can't stand this agony
    Why don't they talk to me?

    In the park I have to rest
    I lie down and I do my best,
    The rain is falling on my face
    I wish I could sink without a trace.

    In the morning I awake,
    My arms my legs my body aches,
    The sky outside is wet and grey,
    So begins another weary day.
    So begins another weary day.

    In the park I have to rest
    I lie down and I do my best,
    The rain is falling on my face
    I wish I could sink without a trace.

    In the morning I awake,
    My arms my legs my body aches,
    The sky outside is wet and grey,
    So begins another weary day.
    So begins another weary day.
