It is a bad time to be poor
Because we don't give a shit no more
If you want to go for help, don't look next door
The line's been drawn and staked outside

I see to trying to lay the blame
On the folks in charge who hide in shame
For growing up with an open purse
And learning not about being alive

Haven't I done enough to burn out?
Haven't I been there to help out?

It is a bad time to be young
What's left to us can't be undone
Without it riding on our backs
When young and poor go hand in hand

It is a bad time to be poor
And feeling winter through a crack in the door
