From A Place


I was born without a dollar,
and I'm going to die in debt.


Are my expectations of me mine,
or do they still come from a place
now far away?


I can still see his face telling me;
I can still see his face telling me


How to say yes. How to say no.





Out Of Gas


You could say anything,
and I'd tell you that
I can only pay with a
credit card.


The panhandler slips
away sadly.
