Bad Time to Be Poor
by the Rheostatics
from the album, Gascd

It is a bad time to be poor, cause we don't give a shit no more.
If you want to go for help, don't go 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.

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

It is a bad time to be poor, and feeling winter
through a crack in the door.
