Its a long way back
From where Ive fallen down*
Its a very hard fall
Its a very cruel town
And my dress is torn
And I got no jewels
Im hungry for
Life a little less cruel
Some dignity
Not too much sorrow
Just a little bit of hope
Hold out for tomorrow

Oh I dont care what it takes my friend
I will never go hungry, go hungry again
Oh and I dont care what I have to defend
I will never go hungry, go hungry again

Its a long ride home
And my head is bowed
And youre no comfort to me now
And its fully loaded
And its set on stone
At least I know that I have won
And my wigs on crooked
And I got no shoes
I rock back and forth
And I wait for you

Oh I dont care what it takes my friend
I will never go hungry, go hungry again
Oh and I dont care what I have to pretend
I will never go hungry, go hungry again

Out of it all
I have survived
From the fires of hell
I am alive

Cynics crush your spirit
Survive this mess you made
Oh God can you hear us
Your my salvation babe
And its time for me yeah
To take a stand
And its time for me yeah
To be a man

And I dont care what it takes my friends
I will never go hungry, go hungry again
Oh and I dont care what I have to pretend
I will never go hungry, go hungry again

And the phoenix she rises
She is sure to descend
She will never go hungry, go hungry again
And youre lookin to me
More and more like a god send
We will never go hungry, go hungry again
And we owe each other nothin
Theres no one left here to defend
We will never go hungry, go hungry again

    General Comment"I will never go hungry, go hungry again" is a famous line from gone with the wind. In her way I think she is saying she will never go into that black hole of drugs and the lows, she will pick herself up like the phoenix raising from the ashes.
