Being a professional musician isn't always a bowlful of cherries, heres a song about being broke as f***!


My town has a lot of spires
And it always conspires
To throw me back in jail
Oh it wasn’t my fault
I just did what I was told
And now I’m being sold
I’m back on sale
My friends are on the street
Preparing to compete
They’re fightin’ in the mud
The less is more the better
But the question is whether
I can stand the weather
Now I’m back on sale

I won’t lie anymore
I’m scared to my core
Now the finish lines in sight
But with the bitterness of sin
I can’t even begin
To explain to my kin
Why I’m back on sale
I just want to build a home
For me to live in all alone
And count the clouds in the sky
But some company would be nice
But it’s a roll of the dice
You have to pay the price
To not be back on sale

Was it something I did?
Was is something I hid?
Maybe its nothing at all
Is it true I shouldn’t trust
Just do what I must
Never make a fuss
When I’m back on sale
This lifes a struggle
Hopping from puddle to puddle
While keeping your feet dry
This forest is a maze
When will I see through the haze
When will it be my day
To not be back on sale
