lyrics

Hit rock bottom but been falling ever since
Living off coffee and mints
Sold my plasma twice in a week
Now I'm too weak to speak

Asked for a loan, banker laughed in my face
Take any job that pays
Holes in my pockets, holes in my shoes
And nothing left for me to lose

Dead broke, all my checks they do is bounce
Dead broke, they're foreclosing on my house
It's no joke, I'm dead broke
All my plans up in smoke
Dead broke, dreamed of money-growing trees then I awoke
I'm dead broke

Asked my ex, could I have a loan
He said no, now get out of my home
Guess it's time for me to skip town
Before my landlord tracks me down

Dead broke, all my checks they do is bounce
Dead broke, they're foreclosing on my house
It's no joke, I'm dead broke
All my plans up in smoke
Dead broke, dreamed of money-growing trees then I awoke
I'm dead broke

Dead broke, and my job has been misplaced
Dead broke, and my money's been erased
With a stroke, I'm dead broke
All my plans up in smoke
Dead broke, if I said that I was flush then I misspoke
I'm dead broke
Dead broke
Oh dead broke
Dead broke
Oh dead broke
