Man Of Misfortune lyrics

See that man - I carry the world upon my back.
Talk to that man - there is no hope, I never talk back.
Sold my soul for a cheap ideal.
The price I paid? the spice of life.
Now Im in a real dilemma,
I must keep myself alive ... alive ... alive.

Look at that man - what am I doing in a place like this?
Pity that man - I live my life like its a crime!
The sun goes dim, the moon turns black.
What I gave away, I never got back.
Now Im in a real dilemma.
I must keep myself alive ... alive ... alive.

I see junk to my left! freaks to my right!
Aint no one laughin - aint nothing funny.
Aint nothing happening. cause we aint got no money!
Hey! hey! hey! ... misfortune!
Woe! woe! woe! .... misfortune!
Watch that man! everything I see goes into a book.
I said, watch that man! I live my life with a filthy look!

Sold my soul for a cheap ideal.
The price I paid? the spice of life.
Now Im in a real dilemma,
I must keep myself alive.

The angels they came to visit me.
Some divine intervention ... they said
Are you the boy with the stars in your eyes?
Are you the boy that fooled the world?
Flappin their wings, tellin me things.
Flappin their wings, tellin me things...
I said I know what I like. I know what I want!
But I never seem to know, I never seem to know.
How to get that thing boy. how dya get that thing boy?
Can you tell me how you got, how you got that thing?
How dya get that thing boy?

See that man! talk to that man!
Look at that man but dont ya pity that man!
Im a man of misfortune! Im a man of misfortune!
Look at that man! watch that man!
But na! na! no! dont talk to that man!
Im a man of misfortune. Im a man of misfortune.
I must keep myself alive. I must keep myself alive.
