All for Nothing

Lyrics

Theres a bottle and a pay check

Just a family who’s dad is sick

Handouts and hand-me-downs

They can bring smiles 

But they only last a while

 

We ignore and close our eyes

Teach ourselves to tell lies

Self-esteem and great big dreams

They can disappear

With every ounce of fear

 

Oh what a shame

To watch it all

Go down the drain

Cause it’s all for nothing

And it’s nothing for it all

 

It’s a disease that kills families

Social events that make enemies

Embarrassment and humiliation aren’t easy to take

And love is hard to break

 

Oh what a shame

To watch it all

Go down the drain

Cause it’s all for nothing

And it’s nothing for it all

 

We can hide it the closet

We just can’t forget about it

Ignorance or addiction, you can’t blame yourself

But you can’t blame no body else

 

Oh what a shame

To watch it all

Go down the drain

Cause it’s all for nothing

And it’s nothing for it all

 

Theres a bottle and a pay check

Just a family who’s dad is sick
