Detroit Social Work

from Human Kitten by Human Kitten



I wish I had a reason for feeling how I feel
I wish there was a purpose or a meaning or something
I wish that when I did feel great, it lasted more than just a day
And I didn’t go straight back to feeling miserable
And the part of brain that functions wrong, well I can’t articulate it into a song
But the day that it happens, I will retire from music

And your mind is like a town with next to no funding
No public education, garbage dumps, or policemen
So your trash piles up all the way to the treetops
And for the life of you, you just can’t get that smell out of your mouth
So you try and you try, you think you might die
You swim through the wasteland, vomiting and crying
Just to make it, just to make it, just to make it to the welfare department
