"Livin' in Desperate Times" as written by and Alfonso Snow....
Never thought it would be so rough
And I wonder if I have enough
To keep from breaking down
No mercy in this town

Every day is just another test
Seems I'm always second best
But you learn along the way
That's the price you have to pay

I try to stay defiant
Be tough and self-reliant
Though I get tired to the bone

Love is just a wish you keep inside
How's it gonna help me to survive
Looks like I'm in this fight alone

And I'm living in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through

Oh, and I'm living in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run

Innocents get taken in
By the promise of an easy win
They start off so naive
So eager to believe

But the glitter of the city lights
Only covers up a lonely night
Of strangers slamming doors
You're hungry and ignored

I've faced the competition
I've made the hard decisions
Will it be worth it in the end?

Taking any chance that comes along
Getting hard to tell what's right or wrong
I only wish I had a friend

And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through

Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run

And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through

And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through

Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run
