A man will break his back if you just ask him,
he will do anything for you.
Gotta keep all the hungry mouths fed.
There's so much more work to do.

Outside the time passes so slowly,
the bright sun burning overhead.
A man will break his back if you just him.
Gotta keep all the hungry mouths fed.

Why is so much to ask for?
Can't you afford a little more?
And don't tell me that it's not a problem,
That's not what you said before.

Outside they're all slowly dying,
the corpses in the strawberry fields.
They're always selling but nobodies buying,
those kinda bruises just wont heal.

Somewhere the boss hands out the money.
He says 'good job' but he's just lying.
You make a living he makes a killing.
They're always selling but no ones buying.

Why is so much to ask for?
Can't you afford a little more?
And don't tell me that it's not a problem,
That's not what you said before.

At home the children all are playing,
Running around the dusty roads.
The soap can't wash away my failures,
It won't wash the shame out of my clothes.

Sleep is always frequent but not lasting,
Tomorrow brings another load.
I never I would spent my whole life
running around the dusty roads.

Why is so much to ask for?
Can't you afford a little more?
And don't tell me that it's not a problem,
That's not what you said before.
Why is so much to ask for?
Can't you afford a little more?
And don't tell me that it's not a problem,
That's not what you said before.

hond civi.

i do not think the singing is bad. it kind of reminds me of a grandaddy sort of sound. the highish voice does. maybe even flaming lips. it is good though. i assume it was made with minimal resources and for that i commend you.

Well, thanks for the compliment, but I do think the singing could be batter (although any comparison to Grandaddy makes me feel better).

Not but..

The singer seems a little lax at times and a little pathetic but It was still a great sound and great tune. I didnt like the way the same voice cut in before the other had finished. Keep it up though because the basis of this song were great.

Kind regards -
Sirtom93.

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it, as it helps me figure out what I need to work on. I can hear what you mean, the vocals in here are pretty weak, especially in the chorus (which is where the vocals should be the strongest).

Hmm....

It seems like it could have been a good song but the singer just doesn't sound to great, sorry. It just seems a little off-tone through the song. Just practice a little and maybe take a singing lesson. Other than that, it seems like a good song.

Thanks for the feedback. You're right, the singing is pretty sub-par.
