The Message Lyrics
[Verse 1:]
Broken glass everywhere!
People pissin on the stairs ya know they jus dont care,
I cant take the smell,
Cant the noise,
Got no money to move out,
I guess i got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley wit a baseball bat
I tried to get away, but I couldnt get far
Cause the man with the tow-truck repossessed my car

[Chorus:]
Dont push me, cause Im close to the edge
Im trying not to loose my head,uh huh huh huh huh
Its like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under

[Verse 2:]
Standing on the front stoop
Hangin out the window
Watching all the cars go by
Roaring as the breezes blow
Crazy lady, livin in a bag
Eating out of garbage piles
Used to be a fag-hag
Search and test a tango
Skips the life and then go
To search a prince to see the last of senses
Down at the peepshow, watching all the creeps
So she can tell the stories to the girls back home
She went to the city and got so so so ditty
She had to get a pimp
She couldnt make it on her own

[Chorus:]
Dont push me, cause Im close to the edge
Im trying not to loose my head,uh huh huh huh huh
(Its like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under) [x2]

[Verse 3:]
My brothers doing fast on my mothers t.v.
Says she watches to much..is just not healthy
All my children in the daytime
Dallas at night
Cant even see the game or the sugar ray fight
Bill collectors they ring my phone
And scare my wife when Im not home
Got a bum education
Double-digit inflation
Cant take the train to the job theres a strike at the station
Me on king kong standin on my back
Cant stop to turn around, broke my sacroiliac
Midrange, migraine, cancered membrane
Sometimes I think Im going insane, I swear I might
Hijack a plane!

[Chorus:]
Dont push me, cause Im close to the edge
Im trying not to loose my head
(Its like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under) [x2]
