Sick and tired of being broke,
There's no way out it's such a joke,
Can't get out of the red, on the bread line,
Gonna dive in deep, it's the perfect crime

Like a beggar like a thief,
To get a break's like pulling teeth,
I could try to make it but they're beggin' me to borrow,
Spend, spend, spend like there's no tomorrow

Bridge:
Actin' like you're loaded,
Knowing that you're broke,
When you got a lot of nothing,
it can't go up in smoke

Chorus:
Wanna go Platinum Blind,
Max it out - I'm gonna blow my mind
Tear it up - And I just can't win
Tired of looking from the outside in
Wanna lose the plot,
Spend some money that I ain't got (it's a money trap),
Well it tastes so fine,
'Cos you can't see nothing when you're Platinum Blind

It's not about the finer things,
Just need that buzz that plastic brings,
Got to live it up like a rich man,
Other people's money runnin' through my hands

Pay it off but what's the use,
Why tighten my belt - feels like a noose,
Something out of nothingtake the rap whenever,
Cash my cheques at the bank and never never

Bridge

Chorus

Falling...gonna hit the ground,
Deeper...think I'm gonna drown
Now I'm itching 'cos there's no one else around,
Got to get another hit 'cos I think I'm comin' down

Chorus

    General CommentThis is a great song to just rock out too, and you wouldn't expect it coming from Rooster. I'm not sure about the message it's trying to put across though.
