Somebody got murdered

volonte fotografo milanoSomeone lights a cigarette
While riding in a car
Some ol’ guy takes a swig
And passes back the jar
But where they were last night
No-one can remember
Somebody got murdered
Goodbye, for keeps, forever
Somebody got murdered
Somebody’s dead forever
And you’re minding your own business
Carrying spare change
You wouldn’t cosh a barber
You’re hungry all the same
I been very tempted
To grab it from the till
I been very hungry
But not enough to kill
Somebody got murdered
His name cannot be found
A small stain on the pavement
They’ll scrub it off the ground
As the daily crown disperses
No-one says that much
Somebody got murdered
And it’ left me with a touch
Somebody got murdered
Somebody’s dead forever
Sounds like murder!
Those shouts!
Are they drunk down below?
It’s late, and my watch stopped
Some time ago
Sounds like murder!
Those screams!
Are they drunk down below?

The day I tried to live

volonte fotografo milano…One more time around
Might do it
One more time around
Might make it
One more time around
Might do it
One more time around
The day I tried to live
Words you say never seem
To live up to the ones
Inside your head
The lives we make
Never seem to ever get us anywhere
But dead
The day I tried to live
I wallowed in the blood and mud with
All the other pigs
I woke the same as any other day you know
I should have stayed in bed
The day I tried to win
I walled in the blood and mud with
All the other pigs
And I learned that I was a liar
Just like you

Things Are Gonna Be Alright

volonte fotografo milanoYou may try and try again
Not to be unsatisfied
Just squeezing by one more time
But how long do you go on
Believing things are gonna be alright?
Not to decry the simple life
But lately I’ve been getting tired
Just getting by
Biding my time
Now I’ve always been so sure
Someday, someday
But how long do you go on
Believing things are gonna be alright?
