I hate waking up it means that I have to die again tonight
35 years old and I'm still sleeping outside
Yeah I think I know your face I don't want to to know your name
I won't give in I'm not like that
I won't give in

You say it's Christmas Eve that don't mean nothing to me
Just another fucked up day just another waste of time
You wonder why I live like this man you just won't understand
I won't give in I'm not like that
Yeah, I won't give in

You smart ass college fuck
Act like you think you're tough
I was just like you
More pride than you could know
Think you pity me

I'll kick your ass if you pity me
I won't give in I'm not like that
No, I won't give in to you
Just go away

You college boy act like you think you're tall
I won't give in I'm not like that
No, I won't give in

    General Comment:I think this is sung from the perspective of a homeless man. Someone offers him help, but he won't take it cuz it will mean giving up his pride.

    General Comment:i'm pretty sure this is an art song. i mean, they're all art songs, but you know what i mean. ;)

    he struggled with drug addiction and all that jazz...i think this is a song saying that he doesn't need the quote-unquote 'successful' people pitying him...that he dug himself this hole, he wants to get out of it himself...all that kind of thing.

    General Comment:i love this song. and you're right. i believe this is in the view of a guy..not necisarrily homeless..but in trouble. and i believe that he has more pride than most people realize. they don't give him enough credit, but he'll show them all someday.
