another link in the chain getting rusty
breaking down in the gutter with a smile
it's another case of fighting your place
another number showing what he's made of
but the sun sweeps the shadows from the concrete
morning comes and it's another day
but the streets have voices the walls have ears
and there never going to go away

on our feet is where we are going to land
(you can find me in the gutter)
the gutter is the place where we will make our stand
and with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
you'll find me in the gutter in the morning

and you with the litter and the leaves we tremble
here's where our memories are made
all the real life starts in the gutters and the bars
long after the light of day has faded
cause we just don't know how to take it
we feel cheated and excited and afraid
well they all shake hands and write our lines in the sand
and forget about the mess they've made

on our feet is where we are going to land
(you can find me in the gutter)
placing the blame on the chain of command
and with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
you'll find me in the gutter in the morning
with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
you'll find me in the gutter in the morning

they have been sighted, they have been indicted
and we've been ignited to break until they bend
we will deny them, this will be our anthem
we will defy them, 'til the bitter end

words, witness is heard, we know it's not that simple
the lies, open our eyes, and force us to rise irate
the world, isn't this small, we know its not that simple
and the gutters give birth, and we'll fill in the streets
the city will shake with the sound of feet
and we'll sing a gutter anthem 'til the day we die

life goes on, the city fades away
and you can't see the fireworks by the light of day
we're not on the payroll, we're just gettin' by
but we'll sing a gutter anthem 'til we die die die
we'll sing a gutter anthem 'til we die
