From Glenn Kaiser's 2011 release Cardboard Box



In Chicago there’s an underground
Below the city, right downtown
In the nights, cold and dark
Rolled up in blankets, rags and scarves

Time forgot
People too
Drugs and abuse
Mental illness
Personal sin
Society’s greed says
They ain’t gonna win

They lit a candle by the
Loading Dock
Held hands an’ prayed where the
Homeless flock

Tough, relentless
Tryin’ to cope
Another died
An’ they’re starvin’ for hope

Pilate drives by
Fast as he can
These nameless
These faceless
Got unwashed hands
Survival warfare in this
Urban squeeze
Ain’t no sin in dyin’
Between two thieves
