Cash Machine – Hard-Fi

Go to a cash machine, to get a ticket home
A message on the screen, says don’t make plans you’re broke
No no this can’t be right, I know that times is tight
I’ve only just been paid 3 weeks 5 days till I’m seen right

I scratch a living it ain’t easy you know it’s a drag
I’m always paying never making but you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get to where I want to be
Better believe it, I’m working from a cash machine

I try to phone a friend, my credit’s in the red
I try to skip the fair, ticket inspectors there
No no this can’t be right, I live an honest life
It seems like sometimes you don’t cross the line and you don’t get by

I scratch a living it ain’t easy you know it’s a drag
I’m always paying never making but you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get to where I want to be
Better believe it yeah

What am I gonna do, my girlfriends test turned blue
We tried to play it safe, that night we could not wait
No no this can’t be right, she said it would be alright
I can’t afford to be a daddy so I leave tonight

I scratch a living, it ain’t easy you know it’s a drag
I’m always paying never making, but you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get to where I want to be
Better believe it, I’m working from a cash machine
cash machine, cash machine, cash machine, cash machine

There’s a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
