    I am not the same person I was yesterday
    And today I will not be the same person tomorrow

    All I know is that I got 2 dollars for gas
    To get me to work, and that is that

    Nothing is guarantee … so many broken promises
    They raise the taxes, and then tax the city snacks
    They increase the car insurance, and then add a gas tax

    Go window-shopping at the dollar store
    Even that is more then I can afford
    It is heart breaking… my check is spend
    And I had not even cash it yet.

    You just about got to be a mathematic wizard
    To have the simple things that is needed
    Like food, clothes, a warm home
    Is that really asking for much?

    Yet the one who have those simple things
    Think it is only a game
    They do not see the real people
    They only see margin figures.

    I just want to move to another world
    So I can raise my boys and girl
    To live a plain and simple life
    That not filled with the slick trick vice

    I see they are playing a chess game
    As they try to take my King
    I see how the pieces are prestigiously place
    I will not make my next move in haste

    I do not like thinking on there level
    But that is what is needed to out wit the devil

    As I laugh I become relax

    All I know is that I got 2 dollars for gas
    To get me to work, and that is that

    I was not like this yesterday
    Today I observe what have been made
    Tomorrow I will not be like I am today
