Which comes First, Mental Illness or Homelessness?
We’re out on the streets fighting the cold
Wondering what tomorrow will hold
When what to our bloodshot eyes should appear:
Ten more policemen, 20 more fears.
So this is democracy, American style
Some make it rich, some stand to file
For a type of relief that never shows
‘Cause there’s no place for the check to go.
So, until you can afford a place of your own,
You can’t get help, one mind blown.
