Dad sees me off to school
and heads back to the frontage road
Mile walk in last year's shirt
and last year's shoes
and last year's coat

Classroom's a no man's land
head low to avoid their gaze
still too afraid to stand
too afraid
too afraid
too afraid

They call me dirty
a whore-child from the street and wild
Sick boy whose dad's a beggar
Only student whose home is a shelter

No one ever tells me

"Dirty kids will always win"
There's no end unless you begin
When you look away
I have no place here

I've got a sister
too young to know this isn't right
doesn't know why she cries
'cause normal for her is a knife fight
knife fight
knife fight
Dead man at the crossroads
and that's our home

No one ever tells her

Look away, look away
you'll see no future, no
So simple to stay
'cause there's no tomorrow
if there's no today
