I would work almost anywhere for a while with no pay,
Provided you are willing to give me somewhere to live and a meal a day.
I just need a promise that you'll provide me with a stepping stone
And won't be offended when I move on
To search for home.
You don't realise what it's like
To be like a rabbit trapped between headlights
Going first to the left and then to the right.
Everything I say and do is taken in negative context,
They hear what I say but don't understand how it is meant.
They see a man out for number one
But they don't see what I have done.
Every time I've asked for help I've been refused,
But when I try to help others, I just get used.
