"In the Black" as written by and Declan Murray Amith Narayan....
I've been washing myself down in your backwaters
I've been filling up my lungs in your city streets
I've seen the up-side and the down of your servant's quarters
I've been grinding down my hands in your empty fields

So spare me some extra before you go
There's a man who cashes cheques at the liquor store

Chorus:

I'm not asking for charity
Just help me till the next time I get paid
I don't care if you need me
Just keep meâ?¦. In the black for another day

I've sent a letter of application a 1000 times
I've been trying to climb the ladder in a borrowed tie
But you never give me a call back when you say
And you put me on the long figure for another day

So spare me some extra before you go
There's a man who cashes cheques at the liquor store

Chorus
In the black ©2004 Declan Murray / Amith Narayan
