about

There are a lot of things that are backwards in the world we live in. Homelessness is one of them. How do we have empty houses yet people with no homes? I see so many disused buildings in Sydney. How much food do we waste/throw away on a daily basis? I'm not trying to be a hero here but even just deciding to finish your meal and not waste food makes a difference to me because I know it all starts with attitude. I am not trying to change the world by raising money or starting campaigns. I am trying to change the world by changing peoples attitudes. Please take a moment to observe yourself, and what your mind thinks next time you walk past a homeless person. Are you judgemental? Are you accepting? I see it daily... ignorant people looking down on the homeless, and it breaks my heart. Now I'm no warrior myself, and I admit to have had negative thoughts about homeless people in the past but I have also gone out of my way to help several people with my bare hands, and take the time to listen to their stories. This is a pay what you wish download (free if you want) and all profits will go towards me actually first hand buying food for people who need it. I don't expect you to donate but please do take the time to listen to the song with an open mind to give yourself a chance to reflect. Thats all I can ask for. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Yours sincerely,
Jistos

lyrics

Lyrics:

I step back from life for a while/
Recline into the back seat of this taxi I'm smashed/
Me, and this cabby have the same style ..../ we observe the world burn from a safe height//

the same type of smile, dilution of broken, hope.../ and downplay it mild till ya know your opponent/ oh it's so hopeless, to see the no hopers/ broken by the motions or snapped on their own it's//

Just another drunk, just another bum/ the funny thing is under it all it's just somebodies son/ sunken below an idea of appropriate function/ coulda suffered an injury or made redundant//

Their trade may have taken a brutal brunt and not recovered/ ...from the slump that drunk may have run a company/ could have just been unlucky but for others a jump up/ a machine replaced human with nothing left to clutch//

Poor as hell, more than Probably rich with stories to tell/ but I Guess people only wanna hear success/ not me, I talk to bums and listen to their digest/ the underdog is who I fight for, it ain't the A list//

Next verse imagine being homeless

Rodger is wise, but he lost his wife.. freak accident/ swerved, avoiding a child, crashed Their hilux/ Into a jewellery store causing extensive fire to erupt/ sentenced to debt cos his insurance wasn't comprehensive//

Peter was a leader teaching Rita how to read a/ sheet a music he knew piano but he played guitar/ peter fell down the steps at home broke his dome sent to a mental home/
No memory now they Let him go he's got nowhere to go//

I feel like a flustered jerk when I get stuck back at work/ leaving my alone partner to look after our girl/ so many families break because of distant relationships/ I feel I ain't contribute they feel abandoned and placed second//

Appreciate every second every breath taken in and out/ cos within a single minit it can flip n' spin around/ no bodies got it figured out don't live in doubt but don't pretend/ that they don't exist cos it could be you beggin for cents //......feelin' like nobody cares//

Live:
I’m feeling like no-body cares.
I’m Feeling like, i’m feelin like
no-body Cares
