Wrekonize – The Man Under The Bridge

The Man Under The Bridge – Wrekonize Lyrics Letra:
Intro
This is rough and um
I mean I ain’t slept in a lil while
I done slept under bridges
I done slept in little cardboard boxes
And stuff, you know just surviving
Especially in winter time, it’s the hardest time
And like uh, I go to fill out applications for a job and stuff
They look at me, you know I’m not looking presentable
And then they, well we’ll call you, leave a number behind
How can I leave a number when I don’t have a phone

Verse 1
There is a man under the bridge a couple blocks from where I live
Filthy pair of kicks and you can see all of his ribs
I feel the urge to serve today but I can’t really give
Cause I just left the crib, inside I got a couple kids
But I stop the car to sit and chat about the things he has
He said, I ain’t got nothing but the clothes that’s on my back
He said, I feel more free than I think I ever have
I’m freer than that car you drive or what you pay in tax
I said damn, I often think too truly I’m the man
Cause I’ve collected so much treasure I can’t hold it in my hands
It’s been supply in demand but at times I do feel low down
Awakened by the fact that I’m buried by the things I own now
They say you do not own possessions, I guess that be true
Cause if you slip and lose your grip, they end up owning you
I don’t know how to feel so I just stare into the blue
And wonder deep inside exactly what you gonna do
If I give you this money will you save it up for food
Or blow it all on booze, I wouldn’t judge you if you do
This life is hard enough to go it sober, that is true
So I enjoy a sip or two, it helps me to get through
But if I give you this money, would you aim for something big?
Turn it all around and give the world a couple gifts
Make the world a better place to live and exist
I’m not sure I’ll truly ever get the gist of the man under the bridge
Hook
The man under the bridge
It hurts to see you living like this
Mr. Man Under The Bridge

Verse 2
Bridge down the street, bridge across the world
We so used to seeing others that we no longer bothered to think now
My father gave the lady money to eat now
Said he felt bad for the kid
Who hasn’t even got a fair shot at this life
Oh what a bitch, paying for the sins of his mama that ain’t legit
On the streets so long he don’t know anything but this
And he still here, happy to exist
If I give you this money would you save it up for food
Or blow it all on booze, I wouldn’t judge you if you do
This life is hard enough to go it sober, yeah that’s true
Shit I enjoy a sip or two, it helps me to get through
But if I give you this money, would you aim for something big?
Turn it all around and give the world a couple gifts
Make this world a better place to live and exist
I’m not sure I’ll truly ever know the risk of the man under the bridge

Hook
The man under the bridge
It hurts to see you living like this
Mr. Man Under The Bridge
Outro
It’s really humiliating to be shaking a cup 24 hours a day
And people just look at you like you some kind of lil bum
You know what I’m saying, I mean I have
Had people walk past me and say get a job bum
And I say wait a minute, I’m not a bum, I’m a human being
