don’t forget your sweater – Charlie’s lyrics

the boss man came and froze my cards
and there’s no heat, he froze my home
so if you’re coming over, don’t forget your sweater,
you won’t want to forget your sweater

there’s no food in the freezer, there’s no power
and there’s no water in the tap, there’s no money in the meter,
so if you’re coming over, don’t forget your lunch
you won’t want to forget your lunch

the boss man came with his bold action
and there’s no money, he says go to work
and there’s no work, he says I’m worthless
so if you’re coming over, don’t forget your shotgun,
you won’t want to forget your shotgun

there’s no light in this tunnel, no blankets on the beds
I had to let the children go, couldn’t afford to pay the rent,
guess they call this squatter’s rights but there’s nothing right about it
and I’m breathing in the living room, not sure who’s air it is
I can’t afford it and life is only yours if you can afford it

there’s no cash in my wallet, no hidden money in the couch,
the boss man took it all because we’re all in this together,
but the boss man’s in a world of his own.
