  • Living on the 110
    Four sharing one tent
    Can't afford no rent
    Forgotten by the government
    Feels like a life time
    Stuck and struck down
    Waiting for the right time
    Running out of luck now
    And it's damn shame
    See it from the fast lane
    Living in the jungle
    Tent city struggle
    You drive by see the family camped out
    By the underpass
    You got your blinders on
    You want to hit the gas

    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You pretend there's democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality
    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You depend on democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality

    I lost my home
    So I roam wherever
    And my belly's on E
    And I gots no cheddar
    Life gets no better
    And my plate is empty
    And my mind is hungry
    Ain't got no penny
    Sidewalk sleeping
    Trying to keep on breathing
    The hopeless pray
    Trying to keep believing
    A ghost you're seeing
    Left behind by the system
    You can see me southbound on Exposition

    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You pretend there's democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality
    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You depend on democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality

    You better hope and pray

    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You pretend there's democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality
    Living on the 110
    There's no end to the poverty, stopping me
    You depend on democracy, hypocrisy
    This is the reality

    Hope and pray
    Hope and pray
    Hope and pray
    You better hope and pray
    Hope and pray
    Hope and pray
    Hope and pray
    It might be you some day Writer/s: Brad Wilk, Carlton Douglas Ridenhour, Lord Aswod, Louis Freese, Tim Commerford, Tom Morello
