    Lyrics

    #11. Poor Man
    (Joshua, Je'kob, Rachael Washington, A. Williams)

    You don't know me, look into my eyes
    You don't trust me; you'd rather die
    Then to take my hand, lead me from this land
    Of destruction and poverty why don't you understand?
    You don't see me, look into my soul
    Can't belive me, I have nothing to show
    But my legs and my arms and my feet
    and my ears and my eyes and my hands
    Can't you see that I'm a man?

    Chorus
    I am the poor man on the street
    And to the rich man i'm a sinner,
    I'm a beggar and i'm a freak
    Everyday you all just pass me by
    Can't you see me, please don't deny that i'm alive

    Aye yo i roam all day and night alone
    This cold pavement is my home away from
    Where i spend it, don't matter none
    Cause i'm left stranded but not the only one
    Cause there's a whole community of them and me's that you stare at
    Like we are the enemy and i swear i
    Don't mean no harm i, just wanna walk with ya
    Don't mean no harm i, just wanna talk with ya
    Tell me your name, i'll tell you mine
    How you doin' today sir, i'm doin' fine
    Now tell me, how that seem so hard
    Easy to forget about me when you forgot about God
    So now i lay me down to sleep
    I pray dear God my soul You keep
    And if i die before i wake
    I pray dear Lord my soul you take, you take

    Chorus

    Listen, it's a hard road and it's a hard game
    To live the live of the man that has no name
    And you point your fingers and laugh
    Did you ever think where this man takes a bath?
    Did you ever think when you called him a slob?
    That it might be you in a year with no job..Nah
    Yeah, he was livin' day to day a normal live just like yours
    A job, house and a normal wife just like yours
    But never did he think or comprehend what was ahead
    Yo, his stock dropped to zero now he's better off dead
    Then goes the house, back accounts and the Benz
    Just when he needed em them the most there goes his friends
    Suicidal thoughts as the countdown begins
    Puts the nine (9mm) to his head it all comes to and end
    About to pull the trigger as he takes his last breath
    He remembers when he dies his kids inherit his debt, Ooh
    There's nothin' left, nowhere to run, puts down the gun, puts out his hand
    Begs you for a dollar and you deny him again
    Look him in the eye and deny him again, his name is poor man

    You say you love God but God says
    Feed him and you feed me
    So why deny me of the very thing i need
    Don't want your money, no, at least have the decency
    To look me in the eyes and not deny that i'm alive
