From the Bittersweet album - Full digital release coming soon 2017.

All sales from this song go directly to helping homeless people in Australia.

It's all I have to offer as a struggling creative.

I myself have endured stints of homelessness and have balanced four part-time jobs to fund my artistic pursuits and stay afloat.


Nice car
Nice shoes
But I can't get by this Livin' life blues
Work begins, never ends
And I can't get by these never-ever-endings...
I buy clothes at secondhand stores
I can't get it right fashion is a chore
Broken promises served on ice
Another war, another life
Broken bodies and broken heads
And I can't get by this Livin life dead...
Sex sells to life whores
Makin their money off the young and poor
Buy this, you need that
Livin' in a cage of empty make-believe traps
Corporate giants destroying lives
They keep you sleeping breathing their lies
They make you I'll you pay for greed
Try to take em down they make you bleed...
We got a life, it's not the same, how can we live,
Playing this game?
A million movies same story line
Another cheap thrill another crime
The broken record of ground breaking news
And I can't get by this Livin' life blues
